I think it’s pretty clear the country has tipped.

It may have tipped and we should be deeply concerned because the GOP electoral map is not growing or standing still.

As I pointed out in another thread "registered voters" tend left of our old model of "likely voters" but I think what was a "likely voter" is shifting to include more of those left-thinking people.

We should not pin our hopes on Obama's name not being on the ballot in 2016 and assume those additional voters he managed to cling to won't stick around for his heir apparent. The Dems cracked the code on how to get its people to the polls in a modern way. Republicans did not.

This alarms me because it brings to mind CA slipping away statewide in the 90s.

Yes, it is obvious that the country has more takers than producers. The problem is the huge cities have negated the effect of the EC by swinging their States via the winner take all provisions of most States. The ‘burbs and rural areas have been effectively muzzled. Just look at the map by county. I feel for the conservative people who live in States with huge cities, they are voiceless. JMHO
