The real question about the midterms -- would the Democratic numbers that affected five special elections and the Kansas abortion referendum carry over to November? So far, the numbers indicate it has.

Dem strategist Simon Rosenberg breaks it all down. He says that Republicans have been flooding the news with marginal polls, and the media consumes them without question. And of course, those polls will feed the narrative that the election was stolen, because "Look at the numbers!"

Would you know from watching cable news that the Dems are actually doing well with Latino voters? Not me! CNN and MSNBC have been pushing the "why are Dems doing so poorly with Latinos" stories...

Young people are turning out, but I don't hear cable news anchors talking about it. If there's one thing I know, it's that the youngs do not answer their phones:

Just want to point out that there's been a steady drumbeat for months of "the Dems are going to lose the midterms because that's what happens when there's a Democratic president." The fact that each race is so tight indicates there's something else happening -- and it's probably not good news for Republicans.

So this will be a turnout election. An awful lot of non-voters say they don't turn out because no one has ever asked them to. Here are some groups where you can sign up for phone banking and win over those voters:


PA Dems

Grassroots Dems

Florida Democratic Party


DNC Zoom Phone Banks

These are just a few. All you have to do is Google "Democratic phone banks" to find one near you. Be a part of this historic election.
