Don't really matter much, at least when it comes to predicting presidential races.

Case in point:

It's sad how all the same delusions that were apparent during and after the Romney run, are again surfacing.

Question everything.

Obama 65,915,796
Romney 60,933,500

Yeah, 30,000 voters showing up to a rally doesn't mean a damned thing other than knowing that at least some number of voters are excited. Or maybe they are just there to see Katy Perry...

Most politicians who are losing in the polls just claim underdog status which can often be quite helpful.

I guess if you'd tied your political persona to being a "winner" you have to push alternative realities instead.

And all the same excuses will follow.

Very true. Democrats have trouble getting people to come out on their own to rally's and events to help out. But come election time , their voters come out for all the freebies.

It's cute how Jeremy's attacks are getting closer to being word salads. Remember how Obama's victory was due in part to a huge grass-roots ground game, and the GOP began working really hard at catching up for the next election (and is still trying to do so)? Democratic leaders must wish that all Republicans were like Jeremy; people who aren't interested in reality are much less likely to engage it effectively.
