Worried because as always we can count on Republicans to outperform the polls.

Republicans typically show up to vote at higher numbers than their actual representation within our population.

I think the reason is quite clear.

When your social philosophy is love and tolerance, live and let live, it's none of your business if they do, I'm an individual rather than a pack member, science over superstion, love over bigotry, etc. then you're not as motivated to get out and impose that will.

Republicans are typically the opposite of all that.

1. I also think because they tend to be older and retired

It's easier for them to get to the polls. I also noticed that my inlaws have people come to their expensive assisted living facility so they can cast their votes right their at the facility and everyone in that facility is white, conservative christian and old.

I doubt that's available to lower income people.

2. That's why GOTV is so critical.

3. Yes, but how many will refuse to vote for certain candidates,

or even cross the ballot? It'd only be small percentages most races, of course, but that's what we need.
