I am hanging ten as I ride this blue wave to victory!

A wide range of evidence indicates that Democratic voters are poised to vote in numbers unseen in a midterm election in at least a decade.
Democrats have largely erased the turnout deficit that hobbled them during the Obama presidency, according to results from more than 50 New York Times Upshot/Siena College polls of the most competitive House battleground districts.
Democrats may even be poised to post higher turnout than Republicans, a rarity, in many relatively white suburban districts on Nov. 6.
Across the Times/Siena polls, Republicans have a six-point lead among voters who turned out in 2014. But Democrats counter with a 10-point advantage among voters who didn’t turn out in that election. Those voters are poised to represent more than one-third of the electorate, enough to essentially eliminate the Republican turnout advantage of the last decade.
There are a lot of folks suggesting that Democrats should not get too excited, that polls may not actually reflect the reality and Democrats may once again disappoint.
But that is certainly not what I have seen.
I have seen people, especially women, so ready to cast their vote that they are literally vibrating with anticipation.
In other words, they are “fired up and ready to go.”
Early voting in Alaska starts on Monday, October 22nd, and if you think I will not be there minutes after the doors open well then you do not know me.
Hopefully, all of you will not be too far behind.
