I know that sounds like a partisan comment, so I guess I'll apologize in advance, but I mean it as an honest question . . .
You are correct there. Republicans were disenfranchised in 2008, didnt show up. It was a historic year for D turnout. That will level off in 2012. Will it make up the 6 point edge Obama had over McCain however? No one knows right now.
