I need more guidance about what goes in 2016 postmortem.

I submitted a post in General Discussion about what our next steps should be. But it felt like it would just get lost in a jumble of everything.

What about calling this 2016 Postmortem and the next 4 years?

What's the best thing to do next?

Are there steps being taken to build up the Democratic party among young people? The headquarters in NH was full of youth, but I'm thinking we have to attend to this or the party may begin to look like crowds at the symphony.

I live in Mass and want to be sure we don't let complacency cause this stronghold to slip away. We now know that anything is possible.

Glad DU is back, but it may have been a blessing...

... that DU got hacked when it did. It would have just been even more painful.

I'm still not looking at print or broadcast news. I've gotten to the point of skimming Google News headlines.

Anyway, glad DU is here again.

Predictions of "crappy weather" in Mich and Ohio don't seem to be panning out.

That's good, right? Any reports from those states?

How is CNN covering Philly?

I switched to CSPAN when they cut away from Chelsea. Just wondering if a main stream network will spend the whole evening on this wonderful event.

Will there be any information about...

... how much all these great last day rallies may or may not have affected turnout? They certainly excite me, but I didn't need to be excited to volunteer or vote. It's hard to believe all this energy didn't get some folks off their couches. Will we ever know?

I've been wondering if ALL of the motivated Trump...

... supporters, the ones who will actually go to vote, showed up at his rallies. And that's it. The others are gonna sleep late and decide to go to the bar instead.

How do they measure excitement anyway?

AA early voting from the Clinton internal polls.

He also said that the campaign’s internal information contradicts public data showing that African-American voter turnout is lower this year than in the past two elections, when President Barack Obama was at the top of the Democratic ticket. In Florida, Mook said, black voters are turning out at a higher rate than they did in 2012, evidence of Clinton’s regular effort to reach out to that community with positions on criminal justice reform and systematic racism.

CNN just showed Colorado tied. Upshot's polls don't suggest any such thing.

Does anyone have an explanation?
