Back in 2000, when Democrats were coming off two terms of Democrat Bill Clinton, the GOP had a 51 to 39 percent enthusiasm edge — 12 points.
In 2008, after two Bush terms, Democrats were up 73 to 59 percent — 14 points.
Alphas win presidential elections, and there is not an alpha in the bunch.
Democrats had an 11-point lead in ’04, and Democrat John Kerry still lost to Bush.
Kerry and Romney were terrible candidates, unappealing elitists backed by terrible campaigns.
