May 8, 2012: The Night the Primaries Became a Lot of Fun
In Wisconsin, Scott Walker received more votes running against no one in the Republican primary than the two major Democratic candidates got combined.
In North Carolina, “No Preference” garnered 21 percent in the Democratic Party presidential primary against Barack Obama.
In West Virginia, “A felon incarcerated in Texas took one in three votes away from President Obama in West Virginia’s Democratic presidential primary on Tuesday. Keith Judd, who is serving time in a federal prison in Texarkana, Texas, for extortion, took 37 percent of the vote, with 50 percent of precincts reporting. Obama captured the remaining 63 percent.”
The night could have gone worse for Democrats, but . . . I’m not sure how.
