Obviously the 18 percent who didn't vote are probably still hoping they can write someone in protest who are Democratic, or simply sick of living in such a brainless state, and will not vote.

The Favorables on Jim Demint though are terrifying. Probably the Fuher would have higher approval ratings right now than Obama. That is why SC has a life expectancy, that is equal to the country of Argentina and the home of Mark Sanford's mistress.

Greene holding steady, headed for a mere bloodbath instead of an total nuclear annihilation.

I really hope some really good journalist or political writer puts out a book about the craziness that is the Greene run for Senate. I'm sure it would be rich ground for political lessons and entertainment.

Is there going to be a debate? PLEASE tell me there's going to be a debate!

DeMint is just about the only principled member of Congress. He truly understands the principles of the Founders and hasn't been corrupted by DC. God Bless him. He's the only guy I could be 100% enthusiastic about if he chose to make a Presidential run.

Great article about the big impact his PAC is having in the WSJ here:

Yes, I am sure that is why South Carolina has a life expectancy slightly below the national average. Really? This is honestly the best you can come up with. Well, at least you didnt resort to calling someone a bigot. Just in case you forgot, South Carolina was one of Obama's more important early victories against Hillary Clinton.

And I thought Raz had a Republican bias. I take it all back. He is clearly overstating Democratic strength in this race....

Note that the dem senatorial candidates in both FL and SC are black. In the latter case, it was obvious that blacks voted overwhelmingly for the black candidate even though they knew nothing about him except that he was black and his opponent was white.

Only 55% of kindergardeners today are white, so changes will start appearing very soon, though not this election.

I predict that by 2016 nearly all non-incumbent dem candidates in the south will be black, with a few Latinos and whites. That will not be a change in the level of racial polarization, which is currently stark. The change is the increasing unwillingness of blacks to be represented by white liberals or moderates.

The same will happen in CA with Latinos. Over time and all over the country dems may be increasingly heavily non-white and reps representing increasingly large fractions of white. That would be a terrible outcome.

I believe we must do three things to avoid that dystopia:
(1) end affirmative action by race and substitute affirmative action by parental income.
(2) re-industrialize inner cities to end the dire poverty of blacks due to unemployment. This would require removing almost all city regulation of businesses, providing strong tax incentives, and vigorous suppression of crime,
(3) end the prohibition of illegal drugs, which is not only a losing horror show, but puts huge numbers of black men in prison, creating destructive male/female ratios (which has innumerable terrible effects on the formation and endurance of black families).
