How many house seats will the Dems lose tomorrow? Howard Fineman of the Huffington Post reports not 39 (still holding a majority), not 50-55 (relatively even with the Republicans) but 70 seats. 70! Fineman writes,
But within the last 12 hours I’ve spoken to two top Democratic consultants — very active on the battlefield this fall and with 60 years of on-the-ground experience between them — who told me some shocking news.
Separately, and privately, they each told me that they thought the Democrats could lose 70 seats on Tuesday. That would be a blowout of historic proportions.
Well, negative campaigning really is effective campaigning. The results of the election day tomorrow seem to have been premeditated by an overabundance of media slander from both parties. This slander employs logical fallacy as a starting point, an argumentative strategy which provides a truly depressing outlook on the intelligence of the American public.
Today, citizens, if you vote, vote smart.
