Grant: Idaho D’s ‘Alive & Well’

When his obituary was mistakenly printed, Mark Twain wrote, "The reports of my death have been greatly exaggerated." Much like that, in response to Marty Trillhaase's May 9 editorial and on behalf of all Idaho Democrats, I have to say, sorry, Marty, the Democratic Party is, in fact, alive and well. Trillhaase based his article on a poll from a former operative of the McCain-Palin campaign. If his numbers are correct, when compared to the latest Boise State University public policy survey, instead of being down, Democrats are actually up from where we were just last year. And the reason is clear - and Trillhaase alludes to it - Idaho Republicans do not represent most Idahoans on the issues/Larry Grant, chairman of the Idaho Democratic Party. More here.

Question: Would you describe the political health of the Idaho Democratic Party as "alive & well"?
