So We Have Talked Of "Reagan Democrats"... Are We Seeing "Christie Democrats"... At Least In...

New Jersey ???

Don't know how that plays out 2 years from now... but it's a frighteningly familiar scenario.

2. Well, a lot of the "reagan democrats" came from labor, and if they forgot how well that worked out

for them, then they will be in for an even more rude awakening if they vote for Christie

3. A commentator just said that the NJ Dem party didn't rough Christi up, expose his record etc.

Christi has NOT been tested - we must start right now to expose his voting record.

4. it sure looks that way

Obama beat Romney in 2012 by 2.13 million to 1.48 million to 21,000 for the Libertarian.

Christie seems to have won by 1.043 million to .67 for Buono.

So on the one hand Christie got 440,000 votes less than Romney. And apparently 1.92 million voters just stayed home. Turnout this year, for this election, was 53% of what it was in 2012. Buono got 1.46 million fewer votes than Obama. How many of those just stayed home since they were assured by the media that Christie was gonna win handily? How many of them flipped over to the winning side?

Obama got 59% of the vote. If Buono had gotten 59%, then she should have gotten 1.01 million, or 340,000 more. Which is perhaps 34% of Democratic voters switching party.

But just because they voted Christie over Buono for Governor in New Jersey does not mean that nationwide that Obama voters would vote for Christie over Dayton in a Presidential race.

5. What the Tea Party has done will work against true liberals. Obama will take some

press photos with Christie showing how democrats and republicans can work together instead of shut down the government like the Tea Party did and bingo bango we've got another corporate puppet in office. I still won't stop fighting for a populist liberal though. I will not vote for any corporate democrats. I don't care how electable they are.
