    The grammarian in me wants to replace "object" with "predicate", but that's neither here nor there.
    Thanks Doug,

    By swapping "object" with "outcome" I was trying to "fix it" too.

    I like mine better!

    For those who follow this stuff, Nate Silver has become something of an instant legend for correctly predicting all fifty states correctly in this year's presidential election, and only missing the North Dakota Senate race among the 33 senate races this year.

    Anyway, given the large number of people on this site who live in the Bay Area and/or work in the technology field, this is Nate's latest article in Obama's popularity both geographically and by industry:

    Overall, I think that EVs get more of a fair hearing from Republicans than other environmental issues/causes for a variety of good reasons, but these are still some pretty stark numbers and demonstrate that we can hope for EV-friendly policies from a Democratic administration and/or Congress.

    There has been plenty of rabid anti EV rhetoric coming from the GOP in recent years which drowns out the more rational voices in the party. Just ask Bob Lutz.

    Most Big Oil money goes to the GOP, so that's not surprising. But here in Florida, for example, the state legislator that pushes for hybrid/EV perks is a young Republican from Boca Raton, and on TMC I think we have a nice percentage of conservatives compared to what one might expect for an EV. I have a lot of very conservative, hard core GOP friends, including many climate change deniers, and they all love the Model S and think Elon is a great capitalist. They were pissed at Romney for ragging on Tesla during the debates.

    Anyone of such persuasion not in thrall (or hock) to Big Oil should like EVs as a matter of national security, and most especially a beautiful, made in the USA, awesome performing car like Model S or Roadster.
