I don’t trust what polls predict because when you cut through all of the +/-, it still doesn’t give you any clear cut understanding of where people really stand. There are so many factors that could change the outcome of polling; the questions asked, door to door polling, polling over the phone, things of that nature. The serious issue for the upcoming elections is voter turnout. Democrats are notorious for staying at home during midterm elections and that could be one of the reasons why the odds are stacked against keeping the senate and still not regaining the house. I would strongly urge all the candidates campaigning to run and embrace the Affordable Care Act and shout loudly and proudly all of the advantages that it has given to the newly insured, parents, and even Medicare patients. The democrats should also be talking about reducing student loan debt; getting the banks to agree to reduce the principal on underwater mortgages, doing something about the high cost of education; these are issues that the Democrats need to be talking about, solid ideas that would put Americans back to work, living wages that could sustain a family outside of poverty, Democrats have so many ideas, they just have to have the courage to promote them without worrying about what the other side will say. Stand tall and proud of what you want to accomplish and what you are going to do to get it done and the people will follow you and vote for you.
