  •  Yes it's worse and Obama wouldn't have won (0+ / 0-)

    without Indy, Rep AND Dem support.

    •  Obama would have won without rep support in VA (0+ / 0-)

      8% of the voters in the Dem primary in VA were self admitted republicans. Of those. about 70% voted for Obama.

      So, that means 6 points of his victory would not have been there had they not voted for him, and STILL voted for Hillary. If they voted for neither, he would have only lost 3 points of his margin.

      Which means he would have won anyway.

      Earning independents is the name of the game as well.. I don't have numbers on that score however, but I suspect that if THEY stayed home, he still would have carried.
