Democrats are more likely to be depressed than Republicans, while independents (also know as "stupid people") fall somewhere in between. In a recent WSJ-MSNBC poll, Democrats displayed pathological levels of depression:
Among Republicans, 52% now expect a recession; 76% of self-identified Democrats do. Independents -- the swing voters who could tip the election -- are also pessimistic, with 61% expecting a downturn.
In all candor, I see a big time recession coming, too, but I think the worst will come if the Democrats win the White House and Congress.
