Is Obama in Trouble with Rank & File Dems?

2012 May 23
by bc3b

We’re not talking about blacks or the far left but the “Joe Lunchbucket” types who typically vote Democratic.

The votes are in and Obama won by 58-42 margins in both Arkansas and Kentucky. This mirrors earlier results in West Virginia and other border states. Sure, these states will likely vote for Romney in November. But, what about states like Michigan, Ohio and Pennsylvania?Is Obama so far left, so radical and so “black” that he will turn off 15 – 20 percent of typical voters? Will these voters: 1) go with Obama, 2) sit out the Presidential race or 3) switch over and vote for Romney (like “Reagan Democrats” of the 1980s).

What do you think?

    The blue collar knuckle draggers will just sit it out rather than vote for the evil repubs. That will still help the GOP. It is in their DNA,
    they caint hep it.

    NY Republican douche bags
    “Proposed legislation in both chambers would require New York-based websites, such as blogs and newspapers, to “remove any comments posted on his or her website by an anonymous poster unless such anonymous poster agrees to attach his or her name to the post.”

    I would sure at least SOME Democrats care more for their country than they do for this Moron in Chief. But still, every day the media pushes some new poll with fewer and fewer Repubs included showing Obama WINNING! Crap…but intended to influence the weak minded, aka: “Democrats”

    KH #5 –

    My guess is that gay marriage is a net loser for Obama across the board. Gay marriage proponents were going to vote for Zippy anyway, but I am sure MSM will manage to dig up those who will say they are switching to Obama because he supports gay marriage.

    I predict the stalwart old republican, Colin Powell, will stay in the obama camp. He is out selling another book citing his experience at building consensus… other words, bad decision making. He is therefore teasing the cable shows with a miraculous display of fence sitting when asked if he will support zippy again.

    Will dems find a way to dump The current Resident:

    Hinderaker is on to something. Remember what they did in NJ a few years back. Laws mean nothing to democrats. I still think the Birth Certificate or college records will show up just in time to disqualify him. The Clintons want to live in the White House again.

    You weren’t on last night’s thread, but you might wish to go back to visit with Miss Kentucky USA.

    I have to revisit other threads.

    The ones about dreams and the one with Ms. Kentucky.

    Should I comment further?

    Newt, Inc. continues to unravel. It appears that “Callista and I” lost more than just a bunch of primaries.

    The Kings are only the second 8th seed to make it to the Stanley Cup finals.

    So far they have had a magnificent run. A lot of heart and great goaltending.

    I want the Kings to win. It would mean the world to some great friends of ours. They are a family of Kings fans- I have mentioned here before that they take limos to the games (and take my son with them!). Recently, they lost a family member to a freak case of meningitis- she was gone within a week of contracting it. They are all so devastated, as they are an extremely close family. They are finding much joy in the continued wins by the Kings, and I want nothing but joy for them. Say a prayer, would ya?

    Well, I guess you can take West off the VEEP list.

    Anyone who speaks their mind is of no use to Mittens

    Doubtful he was ever on it.

    I don’t want to rain on BC prognostication but remember that the smart money folks in the Dim Party have already calculated that Obammy has thrown the White middle class and lower votes under the bus. His game plan is based on not having a deep penetration in this demographic.
