New poll is bad news for Dems in 2014 election

Bad news on 2014 elections here:  a new poll indicates that Rs are more likely to vote than Ds.

But what needs to be done is known - GOTV!  Greg Sargent from Washington Post concludes:

All of this underscores what Ed Kilgore and Sasha Issenberg have been arguing: That if Dems are going to have any chance of offsetting the “midterm dropoff” among their core voters, issues alone aren’t going to do it. The sheer grunt work of contacting voters again and again and urging them out to the polls is what it will take, and it won’t be easy. The one bit of good news is that Democrats are aware of this and are planning accordingly.

As I mentioned in earlier posts, we have some positives working for us.  One is the GOP intransigence on immigration reform.  Another is Obamacare - we just need to accentuate the positive.
