The veteran political analyst and poll-watcher has one word to predict the November elections: rout. I'm with Kos though: the Republicans have so consistently outperformed us on election day in recent years that I will believe it when I see it. I only hope the ground operations are strong, and get-out-the-vote efforts are organized and determined. What we've done in the past on our side is not enough. Anything short of taking over a house of Congress with this electoral climate will be a disappointment.
