According to ‘The Atlantic’, the Right cares more about voting than Left does.
Who knew all it would take to stop that big ol’ blue wave was a little rain?
Rainy weather across much of the eastern U.S. may lead to a more conservative-friendly outcome for the midterms, boosting G.O.P. vote totals and making Democrats more timid even when they do win, @yayitsrob writes. https://t.co/dQgZuPR926

So the only way conservatives do well is if it rains.
From The Atlantic:
These arbitrary weather conditions could shape politics for years to come, political researchers have found. Rainy days can depress voter turnout, discouraging people from going to the polls at all. And lousy weather may even lead a small number of voters to change their votes to more conservative candidates. Both of these effects consistently boost Republicans when elections happen to fall on rainy days.
The party knows it. Bob Hugin, running for the U.S. Senate in New Jersey, called the rain “Republican weather” on the eve of Tuesday’s vote. “This election is about who gets the vote out and who doesn’t, and I hope it rains hard tomorrow,” he told supporters.
Even the weather is against the Dems!
July: BLUE WAVE!
November: DEMOCRATS LOST BECAUSE RAIN

If a little bit of rain keeps you from voting, you didn't really care about your vote that much anyway. https://t.co/SCl7ZPMldm

Democrats can't go out in the rain?

The MOST IMPORTANT ELECTION OF YOUR LIFETIME, unless it's raining, then just wait until the next most important election of your lifetime in 2 years. Soft.

As polls continue to close across the country we shall see.
Tut, tut … it looks like rain.
