The Washington Post contends that Democrats are registering in vast numbers.
Republicans will likely suffer the consequences of their party's high degree of croney-ism for the past 8 years.
Croney-ism was necessary for republicans who found it necessary to sell their political souls to remain in office during times of democratic dominance.
Who else would back a politician with scant political power except those who knew they could buy the political favor, whatever favor there may be, of the politician they backed. The hope would be that such political investment would pay dividends once the table changed.
When the paybacks occurred, it caused a stir that resulted in a sea change of attitude and opinion. The change foretells a tectonic shift favoring the Democrats for years to come.
