The Results Of The Experiment

-- by Dave Johnson

Let's see, Howard Dean heading up DNC. 50-state strategy. Progressive policy focus. ... Result: massive gains in the House and Senate and taking back the Presidency.

Then, get rid of 50-state strategy, go back to "move to the right to chase votes" 1990's thinking, bring back the professional campaign consultant class, etc.

Result? G.O.P. Has 2-in-3 Chance of Taking House, Model Forecasts and (from DK post) "A massive enthusiasm gap, and the largest generic Congressional ballot difference in the history of the Gallup Poll."

Conclusion? The DC Elite will conclude this means they have to move even further to the right, and shed the progressive base.
