Wow! Have you caught one of the latest posts from Bob Mercer? In it, he points out the further deterioration of the Dem Base in the state:
Call them the “third column.” Heading into the June 5 statewide election, independent and no-party voters now rank second in 11 counties.
There are more “third-column” voters registered than Democrats in Butte, Lawrence, Pennington, Meade, Custer, Fall River, Brookings, Lincoln and Union counties.
