MARIA: WHAT DO YOU MEAN THEY MADE IT SO THEY CAN WIN EVERY ELECTION, WHAT DO YOU MEAN BY THAT?>>FIRST OF ALL, THEY ARE FOLLOWING A FORMULA OF MARKETING, OF MONEY, GATHERING DATA AND BEING ABLE THEN TO TIE IT TO GETTING OUT THE VOLT AND WITH THIS FORMULA BASICALLY THEY ARE USING THE MOST ADVANCED MARKETING AND IT’S BRILLIANT AND THEY COMBINE THAT AND THE REPUBLICANS ARE ACTING AS IF IT WAS 20 YEARS AGO.
