What went right for Democrats in North Carolina – Politics NC


The Political Agitator response: When all Democrats begin to vote only Democrat then it will always be a win, win! Democrats voting Republicans? Oh yeah look at the Governor races when Helms was in office and now look at what just happened. It is a damn shame but I voted for my party agenda even though there are some Democratic Elected Officials who just showed us they didn’t support the DEMOCRATIC President.

There’s been a bit of gnashing of teeth among North Carolina Democrats over the election results. A number of people bemoaned the make up of the electorate. They seem to believe that a more progressive campaign with a more grassroots feel could have changed who voted, or at least motivated more Democratic voters.

That’s just not true. The electorate was relatively good for Democrats, especially for a midterm. African-Americans made up 21% of the voters, more than they’ve made up in decades. Wake and Orange Counties turned out at about 49%, five points higher than the state as a whole. Buncombe and Guilford voted at 47% and Durham at 45%. Mecklenburg was the big disappointment with only 39% turnout. (Source:  Read more)

  1. Whatever makes you feel better. ALL Democrats will never vote ONLY Democrat, especially when the national figurehead (your president) is so overwhelmingly unpopular. Republicans will now control Congress, the majority of statehouses and the majority of governorships across the nation….and the White House in 2016! LOLOLOLOLOLOLOL!!!!!
