Upstate NY, right? Red area?

3. Now that gives me hope...

Increasing turnout in blue states doesn't help much.

Hopefully, some red state folks will go home and ramp up some Dem support. I don't buy that the gerrymandering is insurmountable in all districts. There must be some we can flip.

5. Arizona is a good example of how much potential there is. It is definitely a state that James Comey

flipped from red to blue.

Even in a tighter-than-expected race we still would have won Arizona, even while losing Ohio and Iowa.

The media has been covering up how incredibly well we did among Latinos. And we would have done well enough with whites to win Arizona had the FBI not rigged the election.

I don't know if you saw my post on this matter, but I provided an article that explains this very well.

10. Upstate NY is red

On a statewide level it doesn't help but it is the way to take back Congress and the NY STate Senate.

I was at the NYC one yesterday where an officer said he's never seen such a crowd before (he's worked NYE at Times Square and sports championship parades).

I wanted to set up a voter registration table with forms from multiple states there.

8. Just across the river.

I'm in New Paltz. My hips won't let me march as I did in the past.

9. Nice! Hardy souls! Much warmer in St. Pete Florida,

(definitely no coats or hats needed), which probably was a factor in a very nice turnout. The march started in a waterfront park and went off up a waterfront boulevard before looping back on another. We live a few minutes away, so my husband, who had something else to do, dropped me off and picked me up.

I skipped most of the speech events at beginning and end and walked with a Michigan woman also wintering here. We had a great time chatting about the signs and people around us, and mostly feeling too glad to be among others who felt as we did to worry, for once, about the reasons we were marching.

11. March organizers claimed 7700 marchers.

 

Newspaper accounts I read gave 5,000 and 5,900 as estimates. On the march's Facebook page was a photo of a gloved hand holding a clicker that registered 7,716.
