Thanks Benny!
Initial national exit poll numbers look good for Dems

Chuck Todd’s National exit poll numbers: Trump: 44% approve / 54% disapprove. 72% White 28% / Non-White. Democrats: 50% favorable / 46% unfavorable. Republicans: 43% favorable / 54% unfavorable.

Republicans lead the over 65 vote by only 50-49

Great Alice Cooper! I have not heard that song in a long time.

Hopefully, there will be a lot of first timers!

From MSNBC, first-time voters nationwide prefer Democrats to Republicans by a margin of 63 to 34%

Alice Cooper was always too drunk (his fave drug) to even think about voting.

I saw Alice Cooper during the Welcome to my Nightmare tour in 1975. It was surprisingly good.

Corporations sending friendly messages telling you to “go vote,” as if they care about the intrinsic value of voting and not the outcome your vote will help achieve, is transparently phony and should be opposed on the ground that corporate phoniness ineluctably degrades society

RNC chair: ‘Green wave’ of small-dollar donations helped Dems

Republican National Committee (RNC) Chairwoman Ronna Romney McDaniel on Tuesday said a “green wave” of small-dollar donations has helped Democratic candidates in the midterm elections surpass Republicans in fundraising.

“There is one wave that is in existence and that is the green wave,” McDaniel told MSNBC’s Chuck Todd while discussing a possible “blue wave” at the ballot box. “The Democrats have far outspent our candidates across the country with their small-dollar fundraising.”

The two parties’ campaign committee have spent around similar amounts, McDaniel said.

“But the fundraising that the Democrats have had at the small-dollar level has been enormous,” McDaniel said. “And that is part of what is helping them be competitive tonight in a lot of these seats.”

Midterm elections 2018:

It’s not as though Beto O’Rourke needs a helping hand from celebrities in his bid to turf Ted Cruz out of his US senate seat from Texas. After all, Beto O’Rourke is quite the superstar in his own right.

But then, who would object to having Beyonce on their side? The singer has popped up just a few hours before polls are due to close in Texas, posting a photo on her Instagram feed of herself wearing a Beto for Senate cap.

“Every vote counts, Every race matters, Everywhere,” she wrote.

..

Polls have been giving Cruz a small but significant lead over O’Rourke in recent days, though the gap has been tightening. O’Rourke himself likes to point out that he hates polls and has consciously avoided employing any pollsters in his campaign.

So pollsters be damned. With less than three hours to go before polls in Texas close, there is all still to play for. And maybe Beyonce is the one to swing it.

I think its a little late for a Beyonce bump, but overall it probably doesnt hurt.
