Early Voting Around Chicago Scaring Democrats

Published by at 10:52 am under 2010 Elections,All General Discussions

The ‘home town” of our young and inexperienced president is becoming a perfect example of what this election cycle is all about. The early voting trends in the larger Chicago area are indicating a horrible election for Democrats across the nation:

Let’s look at early voting, for instance, and the fact that for the first time since its inception, the suburbs are surpassing the city in turnout. In some cases, the ratio is 3-1.

Ah, those pesky, scared, clingy suburbs – the heart and soul of the Tea Party movement. Middle class, independent, self responsible, normally upwardly mobile suburbs are rising up. The Silent Majority, Slumbering Giant has been awoken.

And yet, the signs are worrisome. Though midterm elections always show a drop in voter participation from the preceding presidential election, there are 40,000 fewer registered black voters now than in the 2006 midterm.

And though the historic presidential run of Barack Obama registered new voters of all races and ethnicities in droves, producing a spike of 190,000 voters in 2008 in Chicago, that gain has nearly been erased in the current canvass. There are today almost 160,000 fewer voters than two years ago. For whatever reason — the highly mobile young may have moved, the elderly may have died — they’re gone now.

With Downstate voters expected to turn out for Republicans, and suburban women the wild card in this election, Democrats have got to deliver their base in Chicago or Quinn and Giannoulias are cooked.

Running 3-1 behind would seem to indicate they are already cooked, on the way to fried, toasted and incinerated.

    Got an email from John Faulk. He says that Sheila Jackson Lee had someone steal John Faulk signs from private property AND has been electioneering (youtubes available).

    Ya think she’s scared?

    Maybe, let’s see how successful Apostle Claver is in 8 days.

    If you think about it, if you’re an average citizen Democrat, why would you want to run on down to the nearest voting booth to elect — more of the same?? More high unemployment? More massive debt? More cronyism and government scandals? More leftist radicals in high government positions? More taxes? Higher healthcare costs? More illegal immigration? More ground zero mosques? More Nancy Pelosi??!! More Harry Reid??!!

    Like that one or two senators that claimed the non-existence of national debt, they just don’t see massive debt, high unemployment, cronyism, government scandals, government spending, and on and on.

    They just want to be live in an utopia society so that they can be helped while they’re galavanting across the globe.
