Pseudo-Random Thoughts

Intense Minorities And Gun Control, Again:  Last Friday, KUOW's Gang of Four was discussing the easy passage (60-40) of gun control initiative I-1639, and wondering why similar measures have not passed the Washington state legislature.

The main reason for these different results is fairly simple:  Gun rights advocates are an "intense minority"; they may even be "single-issue" voters.  Legislators, knowing this, realize they will lose more votes taking a stand against the National Rifle Association than they gain.

But with initiatives, intensity matters far less, assuming candidates and other issues motivate people to fill out their ballots.

I was genuinely surprised that no one in the Gang appeared to know this; it is not an obscure concept.

(There is a secondary reason for the difference between legislative and initiative results:  Gun control advocates tend to be concentrated in urban districts, which means they influence fewer legislators than they would if they were more spread out.

You can find two earlier posts on intense minorities here and here.)

How Bad Are Our Long-Term Budget Problems?  This bad
The Congressional Budget Office estimates interest spending will rise to $915 billion by 2028, or 13% of all outlays and 3.1% of gross domestic product.
The outlook would be better if Nancy Pelosi had not blocked George W. Bush's proposals for entitlement reform after the 2004 election.  The outlook would be even worse if John Boehner had not slowed spending growth after the 2010 election.

I see no solution to this problem that does not include higher taxes in the years to come.

We're Still Counting Votes, but I think we can already say that this Rasmussen poll looks foolish.

(And the CNN poll doesn't look very good, either.)

But that won't stop Drudge from linking to Rasmussen.

Armistice Day:  On the 11th hour, of the 11th day, of the 11th month of 1918, an armistice ended the fighting in World War I.  (Though not without difficulty.   Some American troops, having spare shells and wanting the glory of having the last shot, competed with each other, for a time, after the official end.)

For many European countries, the war was a disaster from which they have never completely recovered.  The casualties they suffered were so immense that, even now, they astonish.  They were so large that, from the very beginning, the combatants lied about them on a grand scale, and even now historians argue about the numbers, especially the numbers in eastern Europe.  This Wikipedia article gives some of the common estimates of the casualties.  The almost 1.4 million French military dead are more than all the deaths the United States has suffered in all our wars, combined.  More than 1 million of them were from France itself, with the rest coming mostly from the French colonies.  Since France then had a population of about 40 million, more than 1 in 40 died in the war; for us, now, the equivalent loss would be about 8 million deaths.

After World War II, we renamed Armistice Day to Veterans Day, to honor the soldiers of all our wars.  When we honor, as we should, especially today, the American soldiers who served, and sometimes died in our wars, we should also spare some thought for those who fought at our side and who suffered far more than we did.

(This is an edited version of a post I first put up in 2002.)

Leftist Michael Tomasky Thinks Democrats Should Have A "Rural Policy"  If, as he admits frankly, they are ever to win control of the Senate again.

That's pragmatic enough, though I think those who live in rural areas will find his tone patronizing.

Democrats used to know this, but somehow have forgotten it over the last generation.  Older Democrats could even tell you how appealing to the rural vote gave Harry Truman his surprise victory in 1948.  But that knowledge has been disappearing, and vanished almost completely during Barack Obama's presidency.  (Obama doesn't even like suburbs, much less rural areas.)

As it happens, many of our rural areas do need changes in government policies, but they are changes Tomasky and company are unlikely to understand, or support if they do understand them.

For instance, there are strong arguments for selling off, over time, federal lands now being used by farmers, ranchers, and loggers.

But I doubt that would appeal to Tomasky, or other urban imperialists.

Last Night, Seattle Leftists Demonstrated In Support Of Alabama Conservative Jeff Sessions:  They would't describe it that way, of course, but they were protesting his firing.

(Unless provoked, I wouldn't mention that oddity to any of them.)

All Of The Current A-hed Stories make me smile.

Four Northeast Republican Governors Ran For Re-Election; Four Northeast Republican Governors Won:  Specifically, Phil Scott in Vermont, Chris Sununu in New Hampshire, Charlie Baker in Massachusetts, and Larry Hogan in Maryland.

(In Maine, Republican Paul LePage could not run because of term limits; Democrat Janet Mills won the election to replace him.  In Connecticut, Republican Bob Stefanowski came within less than two points of defeating Democrat Ned Lamont.)

In national elections, New Hampshire is a swing state; Vermont, Massachusetts, and Maryland are solidly Democratic.  This was not a good year for Republicans, but these four men won re-election, anyway.

Their successes deserve more attention, especially this year, than they will get.

Washington Defeats A Sneaky Carbon Tax:  There isn't much good news in election results here in Washington state, but we did, apparently, defeat a sneaky tax on greenhouse gas emissions, usually called a "carbon tax".

And you can be grateful that we did, because the defeat makes it less likely that your state will have to decide on a similar proposal.

(I plan to have more on this in later posts, but thought you might appreciate a bit of good news after last night.

I-1631)

"Massive Midterm"  That's the headline on the lead story in today's USAToday.

Unfortunately, since the votes are still being counted, they can't tell us how high the turnout was, other than the vague "could be the highest turnout in decades for a midterm election".

Still, their general point is right; the turnout was high for a midterm, and we'll know just how high in a few days.

(In Washington state, not all the votes are even in.  A ballot is legal here, if it is postmarked on election day.)

Here Are The Predictions I Made in October:.
As I said last week, the Democrats will win the House, the Republicans the Senate.

To which I should add, probably.

The FiveThirtyEight estimate on the House seems a little high to me; they currently give the Democrats an 85 percent chance of winning with an expected net gain of 39 seats.  I'd be happier with a probability of 80-82 percent, and a net gain of 35 seats.

FiveThirtyEight is giving the Republicans an 82 percent chance of winning the Senate, with an expected net gain of 0.6 seats  I'd be happier with a probability of 75-80 percent, and a net gain of 2-3 seats.
(When they finish counting, I'll post these predictions again.)

One More Possible Bad Outcome:  The odds are against it, but it is possible that the Democrats will win a large majority of the popular vote for the House — but just fail to win a majority of seats.

Such a result would lack democratic legitimacy for many, perhaps most, voters.

Democrats would complain bitterly, with some* justice, that they had been robbed of their victory by Republican gerrymandering after the 2010 census.

(*Some, because there is Democratic gerrymandering, too, and because Democrats often wish to set up "majority-minority" districts, reserved for Hispanic or black candidates.  By concentrating their strongest supporters in a few districts, they make it easier for Republicans to win the other districts.  During Obama's presidency, the Democrats also made it harder on themselves by neglecting rural areas.)

If Trump Loses The House Today, As Seems Likely, How Will He Take It?  Badly, says Jeff Greenfield, compared to other presidents.

Greenfield thinks Trump is "biologically incapable of acknowledging error" — and I haven't seen any evidence against that conclusion.

So Trump will blame other people, probably many other people, and some of his followers will believe him, just as some of Nancy Pelosi's followers think she was a good Speaker and an effective party leader.
