Someone said the real power voters have in a democracy is to "throw the bums out" when they don't like how things are being run. Applying this principle I selected the Republican ticket when I voted by mail on Saturday. This may have been a bit irresponsible as some of the Republican candidates are uninspiring to say the least. But the nuttier ones have no chance so I don't have to worry too much about what they would do if they actually won.
As for the election overall, for what it's worth, my prediction is that the Republicans do well but under perform current expectations a bit. We will know soon enough.
