Obama Embarrassed in Kentucky, Arkansas Primaries
In Arkansas, John Wolfe — a perennial, long-shot candidate — took 41 percent of the vote in the Democratic primary, with 71 percent of precincts reporting. Obama came in just under 60 percent. The Associated Press did not call the race for Obama until close to midnight.
And in Kentucky, 42 percent of Democrats chose “uncommitted” rather than cast a vote for the incumbent president. Obama took 58 percent, with 99 percent of precincts reporting. http://conservativebyte.com/2012/05/uncommitted-and-unknown-g...
‘Uncommitted’ Gives Obama a Run in Kentucky http://conservativebyte.com/2012/05/uncommitted-gives-obama-a... President Obama easily won Tuesday night’s Democratic primary in Kentucky, capturing 58 percent of the vote.
That sounds like a solid victory. But with the president running unopposed in the Bluegrass State that means more than four in 10 voters didn’t pick him.
Who did they choose instead? Forty-two percent of those going to the polls rejected the president in favor of “uncommitted.” This is bad news indeed for someone running unopposed!~~
