Finally! Okay, so the last nine months have been boring and
worthless stuffy crappy silly. All those “polls” showing everything important, including which space plane will win the competition, have been good for publicity, but little else.
Now we are seeing numbers. Labor Day has come and gone. Denver has been snowed on. The kiddies are back in
jail school and we can focus on real stuff, like the newest Bento Box delight for lunch. I joke there. We can focus on politics.
Each year we hear that this poll has this finding for this candidate and how horrible it is for the party; and that poll has this bad finding for the other candidate and how terrible it is for the party. That is up until after Labor Day, the day after which people start to pay attention to politics. This year is no different than last year or the year Julius Caesar was born. The “normal” people, those unlike us, do not poll well until after the day celebrating getting weekends off is over.
Do you watch and enjoy the Prime Minister’s Remarks on C-Span at 3am? You are NOT normal. The rest of America does not! Those are the people who do not follow candidates until now. Yes, they do have some idea of what is happening in Congress (or rather not happening) and also locally (sort of).
Right now they are getting ready to find out what the candidates are up to. Got time to help a candidate? The people are now ready.
