In 2008 0bama was a blank slate who these voters could write anything they wanted on. Now he is a known quantity.
Going to be interesting to see if they show up on election day for O. All the polling is assuming, like they did in 1980, that these Democrats are going to show up and vote Democrat in Nov.

A new Department of Revenue report released this week shows that the state collected $126.6 million more in general-purpose tax revenue during the 2011-12 fiscal year than was projected last May. The May number itself had reported a better revenue collection estimate than the one before it.
