How the GOP Could Maintain Control of the House

I know the polls say that the GOP will lose control of the house, but I don't think think that will be the case. Why? A couple reasons. First, I don't know if the polls include military personnel. If the polls don't accurately represent the military, then that's a minor but significant error in the polls. It doesn't matter though, since the real reason the GOP will win is simple.

People who typically vote GOP are letting the GOP know in the polls that they are dissatisfied. When it comes time to actually pull the vote lever, these folks will not be able to vote Democrat. I know, I tried it. I already voted absentee, since I'm going out of town, and I wanted desperately to vote for a Dem. I looked through the voter pamphlet, visited politician websites, learned as much as I could. When push came to shove, I couldn't do it, try as I might. Even when the GOP candidate was a total dumb-ass, I still couldn't vote Dem. Even when the Republican was a dumb-ass and the Dem was a shoe-in, I couldn't cast a token vote for them, they're just too ridiculus with their Socialist/Welfare state and Statist agenda.

I have a feeling I'm not the only one in the country suffering this way. Time will tell.

I agree. Plus how many people actually answer the polls? And out of those, how many answer truthfully?

I got polled by phone and answered "not voting" even though I did decide to vote in the end. (About half GOP and half libertarian.)

Well, so much for that. Let's hope Republicans wake up to what happened and we eventually get some real leadership.
