Obama’s Virtual Reality
Recently Obama noted that he thinks he would have beat Trump if he had run for President again, “I’m confident that if I — if I had run again and articulated it, I think I could’ve mobilized a majority of the American people to rally behind it… I know that in conversations that I’ve had with people around the country, even some people who disagreed with me, they would say the vision, the direction that you point towards is the right one.”
His statements once again show his tenuous relationship with truth and reality. According to Real Clear Politics poll averages most of Obama’s presidency was spent with 60% + of the U.S. believing that the country was headed in the wrong direction. At several points during his presidency 75% + of the U.S. believed the country was headed in the wrong direction.
Dems Lose Over 1,000 Seats
Fox News Reports:
“The Democratic Party suffered huge losses at every level during Obama’s West Wing tenure.
The grand total: a net loss of 1,042 state and federal Democratic posts, including congressional and state legislative seats, governorships and the presidency.
Less than two months later, Americans voted for Donald Trump.
Democratic U.S. Senate seats fell from 55 to 46. Their share of the House plummeted from 256 seats to 194. Republicans still control both chambers going into the next session.
Democratic governerships also became a rarity during this eight-year period, slipping from 28 to 16.
The Obama years, which saw the rise of the Tea Party as well as a new movement form around Trump that is still being defined, coincided with a loss of 958 state legislative seats for Democrats.”
