Could Democrats Buck Conventional Wisdom In 2014?   Leave a comment

For what it’s worth, I agree with Booman Tribune’s analysis of a recent article over at Real Clear Politics by RCP’s resident political major-domo, Sean Trende, who believes that, while unlikely at present, the potential is there, given the 2014 Senate map, for Democrats’ to actually pick up seats come November rather than lose them. I agree in that, given the next 2 electoral cycles, if the Dems’ can hold their own, the odds are there for a few Blue Waves through the end of the decade.

On the other hand, this is a mid-term election…and mid-term elections are all about GOTV: getting out the vote. If the Dems’ can do that (as they successfully did in the 2013 VA Gubernatorial race) then they’ve got a shot a bucking conventional wisdom…if not, depending on the individual races, it could get ugly.
