» The DNC is in charge of re-electing Democrats. Although conventional wisdom says that Democrats are in big trouble this November, that hasn’t stopped them from pulling in record amounts of cash for their national re-election effort. Fun fact: 80% of the money came from low-dollar donors online and through the mail, as opposed to high-priced fund-raising dinners, George Soros, or anti-American communists intent on keeping Obama in power. The Republicans’ counterpart organization, the RNC, has not yet revealed its September totals.
» Other things to note: Is this just a hype issue? That’s Newsweek’s conclusion. They say that the chances of angry voters voting in the 2010 elections is roughly the same as normal voters, and there’s a lot more of those. And they note that Obama’s approval rating, currently at 48 percent. is way above where both George W. Bush and Bill Clinton were during their 2006 and 1994 midterms, respectively.
