The 2010 Train

I’ll be digging around exit polls for a while after this election, but a quick look at what’s available now shows, very clearly, this Republican wave has been built on two columns. The first column was a surprisingly high conservative turnout, the second was independent voters. Independent voters are a nuanced crowd, the economy being a big factor, another was simple anti-incumbancy, and there was dissatisfaction with Obama. Neither column is sturdy enough to carry the GOP through to 2012. And neither column has anything to do with the teapartiers¬†(who are basically just already politically active middle classers). Please GOPers, don’t misread this elections like the Dems misread ’06/’08.
