  •  850,000 fewer Democrats voted in 2010 (3+ / 0-)

    for Bernero than voted for Granholm in 2006. That's also 850,000 fewer Democrats voting for Democratic state legislators.

    This can't be blamed on voter suppression, either—it's laziness and apathy on the part of those Dems who couldn't muster the energy to vote, and pathetic gullibility on all those other Dems who swallowed Snyder's lies and voted for him. It's a sad commentary that we need extraordinary GOTV efforts even in a Presidential election year to get our side to the polls.

    •  Bernero was a really LOUSY candidate (0+ / 0-)

      Everybody knew he was toast from day 1.  Never surprised by the turnout numbers.
