Poll question: Why could Hillary Supporters not make it out to the Wyoming Caucus today?
We have heard plenty of excuses about why Hillary does poorly in Caucuses.
What will today's be?

Sorry, polls are turned off at Level 3.

3. They serve free lattes at the caucuses to attract Obama supporters.
Clinton supporters don't drink that upper-class yuppie stuff, so they won't come.

6. Teton County has not reported in yet
That will be a waterfall of votes for Obama. It's one of the most affluent counties in the US, and very environmentally concious. It was the only Kerry county in Wyoming in 2004.

31. Yeah...there's a racist undertone to that "jobs" and "responsibility" thing.
I am getting the impression that some people have this notion that Obama gets all his support from welfare recipients or deadbeats.

32. That was the vibe I got, too.
"Responsible" people who have actual jobs (not welfare deadbeats?) vote for Hillary. That's how I read it.

16. Really?
I am a person of the female persuasion who works full-time and has attended many caucuses over the last 30 years or so. Lots of other women were there, too. Some even brought their kids.

I call bullshit.

24. Sorry I didn't catch it. That "sexist" thing gets thrown around here so much
that it's hard to tell sometimes. And I have read here that caucuses (cauci?) are, indeed, sexist.

35. You have got to be kidding me!
I thought that was such an obvious joke.

People have really said that? :wow: And here I thought it was just the free lattes!

Have you ever even had a latte? It's not something I can afford on my limited income.

37. I'm not making that up.
Women have to take care of kids so they can't go to caucuses. Therefore caucuses are sexist. That's what I was told, anyhow.

I've had lattes but don't like them. Even though I support Obama I prefer plain coffee. I must be weird or something.

42. That makes two of us then
What idiocy "Women have to take care of kids so they can't go to caucuses" I guess in Hillary's world, women don't work either or do much of anything else because they have to take care of kids.

Thanks for explaining that. I believe you but it's making me reel.

15. And even though Obama supporters don 't have jobs
that interfere with their elitist caucus-going habit, they can still afford to buy lattes. How can that be?

22. Obama supporters let the air out of the tires
on the old-folks home buses.

This is dirty politics at its worst!!!

Muslim cult vandals!!!

I couldn't find the link to back up this accusation, so this one will have to do:

27. The way she talked to them; she made it sound as if they're too ignorant to caucus.
I saw a clip of her rally yesterday; she told the crowd she knows they're not used to doing that caucus thing and may not know how. WTF?

40. Well, you see,
Wyoming is clearly full of black people and "activists". Plus, didn't Jesse Jackson win there once or something?

Also, it's not a state that matters.
