Driving people to the polls often happens down ballot.

Recommended Posts

One of the major states pointed to as swinging back blue is Michigan. This is based largely on the blue sweep at the top of the ticket in 18.  For those that study such things you already know that Michigan has 3 ballot initiatives that made the ballot in 18, all of which favored Dem positions (legalized marihuana, independent redistricting, and same day voter registration).  This certainly increased the voter role for Blue candidates.  

Interesting to note that today two ballot initiatives that will motivate red voters were approved, and if the signatures are raised, it could have the reverse effect in ‘20.  (Especially since the stoners wont remember when the election is :)  )

Keep an eye in those battleground states for for the ballot measures and down ticket dynamics.  They will matter majorly in ‘20.

Maybe real choice and candidates addressing real, deep-seated issues and problems, that are usually ignored or just promised the same old song-and-dance that don't work, sincerely and seriously, and who don't harp on the endless mire of social issues that should have been resolved long ago or which Third World country they want to go to war on (or continue a war on) on an agenda of lies, misinformation, and just to enrich big corporations or settle disputes your common American truly has no real stake in, killing numerous Americans and foreigners, committing numerous war crimes, leading to more anti-American sentiment and the rise of more "terrorist" groups. I think it's the candidates, their typical promises and platforms, and the party machines that's the real problem. And, vapid, vitriolic, loud-mouthed, populists with no real platform of use, promising the Moon and lacking all proportion, is NOT a better alternative, all-in-all.
