At some point if I stare at exit polls any more I’m going to start screaming. I both love and hate post-election analysis.
Here are some much less complicated midday news/views treats:
* Silver lining: two gun-lobby champs who won special state senate elections in CO lost last Tuesday. But GOPers won control the chamber anyway.
* Ron Fournier abandons his professed support for Obamacare because Jonathan Gruber says administration lied about it. Too bad, uninsured.
* Mark Bauerlein argues there’s evidence youngest voters (18-24) drifting away from Democratic column.
* At the New Yorker, Jeffrey Frank compares 2014 to midterm elections of 1940 and 1950s, and finds “mood swing” unimpressive.
* At the Prospect, Paul Waldman warns against extrapolations of low-turnout midterm trends.
And in non-political news:
* European spacecraft lands on surface of comet.
As we break for lunch, here’s more Neil Young with Crazy Horse, and the studio version of “Down By the River.”
