The other day, Rachel Maddow brought out an interesting factoid. A year before the 2010 elections — you might recall that that is when the Tea Party stormed into Washington — there was a blip in registrations of Republican Party canddiates seeking to run who had a base level of financing. Rachel argued that this correlates with Republicans taking back the House a year later in 2010. So how are candidate registrations looking now? Registrations of Democratic Party candidates are more than 2 times larger than the Republcan candidate blip in 2009. If Rachel is right, we might be in for some surprises.
