There’s something about these early voting numbers
Have you ever felt something stirring in the wind? Perhaps you’ve even smelled it or almost touched it. There have been so many dark and morose messages delivered from smug and clueless pundits who want to depress voting turnout.
So I thought it might be nice to write an article about all the GOOD that’s happening — and all that we can feel and sense in the wind. Political strategist Adrienne Elrod had this to say to Morning Joe on MSNBC: “When early voting has gone well for Democrats, that’s a very strong sign.”
It IS. And early voting, as we’ve said, is shattering records. Elrod also said just the fact that so many races Republicans at one time were expected to win have tightened so much is excellent news for our side.
“Abortion continues to grow as a motivating factor.” This is from the Kaiser Family foundation. Do you remember the Fetterman/Oz debate? That’s the one where the media attempted to sink Fetterman’s campaign. It didn’t work and some in the media are even admitting it.
“Fox News Anchor Reports Poll shows Oz debate didn’t sink Fetterman.”
“Numbers barely budged.”
Fox said that!
And many Pennsylvanians appear to be more concerned about Mehmet Oz’s lack of familiarity with their state than anything having to do with Fetterman. Even Dasha Burns of NBC admitted that.
Gallup says early voting is way up from last time. Four of ten voters say they plan to vote early or have already voted.
From The American Prospect: “As of October 30, Democratic early voting for 2022 exceeded early voting in the democratic wave election of 2018 while republican early voting was lagging it.”
Early voting has now passed 25 million. Yes, something is stirring in the winds, awakening in the breeze. It’s early voters. It’s women and minorities and so many fired-up, enthusiastic people who want to win. So let’s keep it up in these final days, and we will indeed feel the breezes of victory.
