Is Obama going to lose the Arkansas Democratic primary?

posted at 9:01 pm on May 17, 2012 by Allahpundit

Via Jorge Bonilla in the Greenroom, who sounds the call for “Operation Razorback Chaos.” Two words, my friends: Open primary.

It’s magic time.

In West Virginia, federal inmate Keith Judd recently swiped 42 percent of Democratic votes from the president, indicating the level of dissatisfaction among the rank and file. And according to a Talk Business–Hendrix College poll conducted on May 10, Obama leads John Wolfe, a virtually unknown candidate, in Arkansas’s 4th congressional district by only 7 points, 45–38.

Three weeks earlier, the Talk Business–Hendrix College poll showed the president leading by 65–24 in the slightly less conservative 1st district, but that was before Obama declared his support for same-sex marriage.

Wolfe, an attorney from Tennessee, tells NRO the new poll numbers indicate Democrats’ discontent with their standard-bearer. “He doesn’t understand them,” he says. “I think it’s more manifest in the health-care area. I think they would like something different.” For his part, Wolfe promises to repeal Obamacare.

Wolfe opposes gay marriage so he’s primed to benefit by drawing a contrast with O’s recent “evolution.” On the other hand, he’s, er, not running any ads so I’m not sure how he’d do that. No matter, though: No one’s voting for Wolfe, only against Obama, so if the backlash is real then this race just got tighter. In fact, Arkansas Democrats are sufficiently worried that they announced today that Wolfe won’t be awarded delegates no matter how well he does because he hasn’t filed all the necessary paperwork. How happy do you think they were to have to issue that just-in-case statement?

Actually, the best part of this story is the location. Team Mitt’s going to have a lot of fun if The One faces a close call on Bill Clinton’s home turf:

Seeking to attract Democrats and independents who supported the last Democratic president, Romney has taken to lavishing praise at every turn on Clinton’s boom-era ’90s policies while contrasting them unfavorably with President Barack Obama’s old-school, Big Government ways.

The tactic is designed to drive a wedge between the group of Democrats who supported Obama during the epic 2008 primary battle between Obama and Hillary Clinton: the white, working-class voters who hold the key to many swing states, like Ohio, Pennsylvania and Michigan.

It’s also a simple way for Romneyland to poke a stick in the eye of Team Obama, using one of its most prominent surrogates but a man who has had a complicated personal history with Obama…

“It’s useful to point out what people already believe about Obama,” Romney strategist Stuart Stevens told POLITICO. “That he’s an old-school liberal who is to the left of the country and relying on old, failed solutions.”

Here’s the man himself, who I’m now calling “President Wolfe,” hitting O from the left on banking.

JPeterman on May 17, 2012 at 9:07 PM

in a word, YES.

arkansas is a crazy state (like west virginia) where the local politics is ALL ‘democrat’ but they are conservative, and they vote for republican for president.

so everyone is a ‘democrat’, but votes for W bush, see?

what that means is, every democrat primary the other guy gets a lot of votes.

Lyndon Larouche got 25% on al gore when larouche was in JAIL in 2000.

Pryor’s opponent for the senate in 2008 was uncontested in the general, and the green party guy got 25% (a fact the national green party crows about to this day)

add to that the fact obama’s approval in arkansas is about 30%, because many of the ‘libs’ HATE obama because he stole away hillary’s right to be crowned in 2008 or whatever… I’m thinking…

it can and WILL happen. all that needs to happen is a little publicity about all this… chaos.

Arkansas’s 4th congressional district

let me add, if there are any south arkansans reading this, vote for TOM COTTON in the gop primary if you can. beth ann rankin is a good lady, but cotton is a nice mix: Harvard educated, served in Iraq, and a totally normal “heartland” conservative. he’s a great speaker, and we could use him in the house.

i met him about 5 years ago, just once, and never forgot his name, because i knew he’d be somebody someday. and now he’s got a shot!

can you vote for the gop in congress and the dem for prez, is it ‘that’ open? otherwise the 4th district people need to stay gop and vote for tom cotton

If this sentence means what I think it means, that “Romney is lavishing praise on Clinton’s boom-era ’90s policies” with the idea of driving a wedge between the Democrats who supported Obama 2008 and those who supported Hillary in 2008, then what happens if Obama dumps Biden and picks Hillary as his veep, which apparently might be possible?

It may be that Hillary would enjoy more seeing him twist in the wind, with a Biden that would then be highly damaged goods, but she would be the presumptive nominee in 2016, were Obama to win (as she might imagine). That would be a tempting prospect to her, I would think. Of course he won’t win, and if she realizes that then she would of course prefer plan A, let him twist. ["Twisting in the wind" is a figurative way of expressing the idea of leaving someone to their fate, and is NOT an allusion to anything else, oh literal-minded lib who might be trolling.]

Logus on May 17, 2012 at 9:37 PM

Even if it were Arkansas, losing a primary would be shattering. Especially coupled with the poor showing in WV. It is a vote of no confidence by Democrats.

I saw some footage today of the 2008 candidate Obama. He was going to break the gridlock in DC. He was going to be post-partisan. He was going to challenge Americans to be better citizens.

None of that happened. Obama encouraged gridlock. He is the most partisan President ever. His idea of citizenship is essentially socialism by another name.

I like these largely insigificant but telling stories. He will be the Dem nominee in Arkansas but it has already been made clear he does so without the excitement of 2008.

I agree with you, If Hillary thought that becoming VP in 2012 would open the door for running for the big job in 2016 she would do it. Anything to keep from having to live in the same home as her “husband.”

Here’s the real question. If Obama were to be given a second term, is Hillary Clinton or Joe Biden the best they’ve got for 2016?

I like how everyone that talks about Arkansas politics acts like its a big mystery why they vote blue at a more regional level, but vote red for Presidents up until 2010. The state is poor outside of the Northwest Arkansas bubble and the Little Rock area. The majority of the state wants the tax money that NW Arkansas creates. The majority of the state does a lot of farming and likes subsidies.

Bill Clinton succeeded in Arkansas as a Blue Dog democrat President because Arkansas is a mix between very rich areas and a lot of very poor areas. He played to the notion that we keep government spending at a reasonable level and in exchange we keep a progressive tax system that provides for the poor. Look at Huckabee, essentially a blue dog democrat that is pro-life.

I guess my argument here is Arkansas is socially conservative and fiscally moderate. Obama is socially liberal and fiscally liberal. If Obama was Socially moderate and fiscally liberal, I don’t think the majority of Arkansas natives would have to much of a problem with him.

Not running Billary against Obama this year was the biggest strategic mistake the Democrats have made in two generations.

Running Obama unopposed this year is likely to cost the Democrats the White House for 16 or more years. President Romney will be a good President if we can get him enough seats in the Senate. When he is done there will be a super crop of Republicans ready to take the reins. By then Bobby Jindal would have served a full term in the Senate if he, as I expect he will, takes the Senate seat currently held by Democrat Mary Landrieu. That would put him as two terms of Governor and a full term in the Senate in a great position to run for President to name just one possible contender.

I would have participated in Operation Razorback Chaos when I went for early voting if I didn’t have so many local Republican races here in Saline County that I sort of cared about. I’m sure Wolfe will get pretty high numbers here and hope he does, but what I really wonder is why I’m forced to vote for the Libertarian Party candidate in the 2nd district in November for these three reasons:

1) Tim Griffin is a RINO and not often understood as one;

2) Nobody challenged him in this primary; and

3) The ancient Herb Rule, a “lion of the Little Rock liberal community” as the left-of-left-but-somehow-kinda-popular Arkansas Times called him in their endorsement, is his Dem opponent.

Here’s the real question. If Obama were to be given a second term, is Hillary Clinton or Joe Biden the best they’ve got for 2016?

Happy Nomad on May 17, 2012 at 9:57 PM

Yes. The old liberals who run the party have done an absolutely bang-up job of neutering any possible challengers to their power. The only exceptions made have been for the sons and daughters of “The Respected”, to borrow a term from some of the lot Mario Puzo made so much money writing about forty years ago. This is where Mark Pryor and Kathleen Sebelius (daughter of former OH Dem governor John Gilligan) come in.

Hillary is 64 (born 26 Oct 1947); she’ll be 68 on Election day 2016. Biden is 69 (born 20 Nov 1942); he’ll be 73 about two weeks after the 2016 election.

While age isn’t necessarily an index of capability (look at Reagan, Churchill, and Eisenhower), a “ruling class” which doesn’t nurture successors is one more likely jealous of the individual power of its existing “in-group” than one committed to continuity. (“Après moi, le déluge”?)

Or else, especially today (with advanced medicine), they may be delusional enough to believe that they will live forever. Or at least as long as Rameses II of Egypt (who ruled Egypt for 66 years, 1279-1213 BC).

Neither one bodes well for this country, or the world as a whole.

As for The One dumping Biden for Hillary, it doesn’t matter what Hillary might or might not want. The One is not going to make a Devil’s bargain with the one person in the party’s leadership as utterly convinced of Her own divinity as He is convinced of His. Nor the one person whose ambition matches His own.

Duncan does not take Lady Macbeth to his bosom.
