Back on November 4th, 2008 in Farmington and Industry, Maine, Democrat Janet Mills won re-election by almost a 2 to 1 margin. But she was elected Attorney General and the special election for her seat was held today.
The Republicans won her seat by a 2 to 1 margin. Which is an over 30% improvement on the November 2008 showing and yet ANOTHER sign that the American public has buyers remorse in regards to the current President and his policies.
In a district where 2/3rds of voters backed Obama. The voters have shifted back to the Republican Party.
The failures and underwhelming showings of the Democrat Party after 11/4 are numerous. They lost in Georgia by a landslide. They came up short in one Louisiana district and lost another district that had never elected a Republican in the last century. They lost a Pro-Obama state house district in Delaware. They almost lost a 2 to 1 House seat in Virginia (winning by 17 votes). They almost lost the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors Chairmanship tonight.
In the next few months, it is almost certain that the Dems will quietly drop New York’s 20th district while the odds of an underwhelming showing in Illinois’ 5th grow more likely by the day. As well, Republicans will likely pick up state legislative seats in Alabama and South Carolina.
The momentum is with the Republican Party. Obama’s arrogant nature has been exposed. It doesn’t take a village of tax-cheating Obama cronies to realize that Obama is looking more and more like a one-term President every day.
