Democratic Senator John Kerry shows exactly why Democrats are projected to lose so big in the midterms, the mindset of Democrats.
A testy U.S. Sen. John F. Kerry yesterday blamed clueless voters with short attention spans for the uphill battle beleaguered Democrats are facing against Republicans across the nation.
“We have an electorate that doesn’t always pay that much attention to what’s going on so people are influenced by a simple slogan rather than the facts or the truth or what’s happening,” Kerry told reporters after touring the Boston Medical Center yesterday.
Democratic politicians simply refuse to understand that the American people are informed, are watching them and are unhappy with the way they have ran Washington these past years and want to replace them.
No, the Democratic mindset is that the American people are simply too stupid, too "uninformed" to really know what they are talking about, to know what they want and what they do not want.
Here is a little dose of cold hard reality for Mr. Kerry from the Associated Press Polling Director Trevor Tompson, AP Deputy Polling Director Jennifer Agiesta and AP News Survey Specialist Dennis Junius on August 31, 2010.
In nine of 15 issues examined in an Associated Press-GfK Poll this month, more Americans who expressed intense interest in a problem voiced strong opposition to Obama’s work on it, including the economy, unemployment, federal deficits and terrorism. They were about evenly split over the president’s efforts on five issues and strongly approved of his direction on just one: U.S. relationships with other countries.
In another danger sign for Democrats, most Americans extremely concerned about 10 of the issues say they will vote for the Republican candidate in their local House race. Only those highly interested in the environment lean toward the Democrats.
Democrats' biggest problem isn't voters who are uninvolved or under-informed... their biggest problem are the voters that are the most interested, more informed.
Perhaps it is John Kerry that needs to be informed of the "truth" and "facts".
