  •  Because they can't stand the GOP. (4+ / 0-)

    Voters were FAR more turned off by vouchers for Medicare, the 47%-57% meme, legitimate rape, and austerity, than they were turned on by Obamacare, drone wars, Dodd-Frank, and killing bin Laden.
    Democrats will win elections by landslides once they figure out that the very same demographics that apply to the Republicans, apply to the Democrats, too.  We need to quit running after conservative voters and concentrate on running toward the issues that the new voting demographics care about: equality for all, the green economy, healthcare for all, and equal justice for all.
