Of course, I don’t think Obama will have the self-awareness of LBJ and drop out of the Presidential campaign. And, I certainly don’t believe the media will revisit their old contention that an incumbent president losing 40% of his own party’s vote is a sign of vulnerability. I expect they’ll sweep it under the rug and pretend it doesn’t mean anything special.
But. It. Did. Happen. And, it has a significant bearing on this Fall’s election. Obama obviously never had a serious chance of winning Arkansas, Kentucky and West Virginia in November. But, the results in these states suggest that Obama has a serious problem with a significant portion of his Democrat base. Remember, this wasn’t a poll or survey of Democrats. They had to actively go to the polls and vote in a race that was largely uncontested.
That is some serious initiative. From Democrats. To vote against Obama. Message received.
