Election stats and MSNBC: Black Voters Were ‘Offended’ by Dems Running from Obama [View all]

Link 1: Election results.

http://sos.iowa.gov/elections/pdf/2014/primary/statestats.pdf

Note that dems didnt show up. The GOP outnumbered us better than 2-1. Why? No, really 2 to 1!!! Why?



Link 2: Interesting link that additionally supports a low turnout.

It is amazing to me that very few dems wanted to be seen with Obama. They kept saying this election was not about Obama. One even said she was going to eliminate the ACA. Ummm, No it wasn't about Obama, but YES it was!! He is a DEMOCRAT, not a republican!!! And it just so happens that this guy happens to be the President of the United States, and has put his ass on the line many times during his tenure to date, to keep democracy working in this country. So how can you distance yourself from this gem? He's there for the taking. You would have to be a total idiot not to use him as an ally. Well, that's exactly what they did, and they paid the price of a total disaster.

IE: I never heard anything about how, he as a democratic president, has stood by our democracy, making this a better country. He's been awesome in my opinion. I mean, the ACA, gas prices, Wall Street, recovery from 750k jobs a month, and the list goes on and on. There was NOTHING said. Nothing!! The electorate never knew what the dems stood for. I wouldn't show either, even though I did vote.
