The Democratic Strategist

Political Strategy for a Permanent Democratic Majority

Good Times, Less Good Times

It’s now just a matter of time til the presidential election is called for Barack Obama. But I have to admit some dissapointment that Obama lost Georgia pretty decisively, and that Jim Martin lost the Senate race in that state. I fear my concerns about a racial backlash in the Peach State may have been accurate. Obama appears to have barely exceeded John Kerry’s anemic share of the white vote in GA, and the increased African-American vote, and the increased Democratic share of that vote, wasn’t enough.
