Thanks for spending the half hour with me on #MSNBCVotes. Off to campus. See you in #Nerdland on Saturday and Sunday 10AM ET. @MHPshow
And @doitrightnow Dems most forcefully distancing themselves from POTUS tend to be Southern where most need a diverse turnout. #MSNBCVote
I think Dems distancing from POTUS is bad strategy. Midterms are about the base. Base still supports POTUS @doitrightnow #msnbcvote
Students can learn surge-decline of POTUS v. midterms, effects of new districts, effects of "lame duck" incumbent. @NishaChittal #MSNBCvote
I think Ebola will have little impact on outcomes @josephneese Hard to see it as motivator for voters unsure about turning out. #msnbcvote
But @ImSilentJ many argue the Founders felt frequent elections are the best term limits because the voters decide limit. #MSNBCVote
Honestly @ImSilentJ I am a fan of term limits given the influence of $ and difficulty of recruiting new/ diverse candidates. #MSNBCVotes
But if one's mayoral race is all about foreign policy @autumn_joi that is probably not useful. #MSNBCVote
Nat'l issues tend to drive Congressional races @autumn_joi because they are nat'l lawmakers even if elected locally. #MSNBCVote
Well @Wbtcw3 polls show little chance of defeating Graham in SC. But voting is *always* important. Crucial local races matter. #MSNBCVote
Youth vote typically drops in midterms. Info & direct contact seems to be most important to getting youth to polls. @kthpotts #MSNBCVote
Tough to call NC race. @thebluec_w Hagan only wins if there is massive turnout. Not yet clear if that will happen.
Whoops. ..Important to remember there is more than one leader of the GOP. @kath_wiggins #MSNBCVote
Advice to first time voters: Vote early if u can. Vote early in day. Read sample ballots from orgs u trust. #MSNBCVote
Important to remember there is one than one leader of the GOP. @kath_wiggins #MSNBCVote
Some sources & polls are better than others. The key is to read many sources & take margin of error seriously. #MSNBCVote
No one answer to whether you can "believe the polls." @Virgo119 #msnbcvote
But pop culture is doing important work with trans issues. @blakebonk
I think @blakebonk that there's so much reasonable excitement about the marriage equality victories that Trans-rights have been less central
