I have decided why I am truely loving all this “election stuff” is because there are so many newly engaged people! The fact that all three prime time networks broadcast live election results…that is new! I am hearing from people who have never followed politics and they are interested, engaged and asking questions. The youth vote is turning out in the primaries…how crazy is that. I have never bet on the youth vote, but this could be their year….perhaps they have finally figured out they have a voice. If nothing else people are voting.
Could this be the election where voter turnout is in the 60 or 70 percent range (okay 70% is a pipe dream..but maybe some day. 2004 was a record voter turnout year since the ‘60’s and that was only 56%)?
Could this be the year Marty gets registerd and actually votes?
Anything is possible.
