Florida After the Primary

Wednesday, February 01, 2012

Patchwork Nation director, Dante Chinni, analyzes how the Florida primary vote broke down by demographics. We're also joined by Jennifer Rubin, "Right Turn" blogger for the Washington Post, to discuss the state of the Republican party now that Mitt Romney has been declared the victor in the Florida primary.

Good lord, stop already - there was a primary in Fla, Romney won by however many points - now move on. Hours and hours devoted to these non event primaries, including a guest who talks about Gingrich's sense of grandiosity and repeats the same point over and over for what seems an eternity. And, you can't stop her. Some guys who raise money from other guys with an ax to grind run for office. Some of us dumb enough to think we have a voice spend time listening to and voting for them. Don't add insult to injury by forcing us to listen to these analyses day after day.

There are no more "Reagan Democrats" in the Rust Belt anymore. They all have retired to Florida, registered as Republicans, collect union pensions, and apparently voted for Romney.

No matter how distasteful and bothersome negative ads and campaigns are to the electorate, they do, in fact, work. It will never be the primary factor in a candidates win, but it helps.
