Did Democrats Miss A Turn On Main Street?
Given everything else we’ve observed from confusing polls, to endorsement switches and the like, it wouldn’t surprise me to learn that the Democrats, along with much of the mainstream media, is overlooking that not so insignificant little thing we call main street in America.
I’m not looking to hang my hat on anything and believe Romney can win. What I’m currently less sure of are the whys and wherefores that are going to ultimately drive this electorate and, consequently, perhaps the election itself.
Main Street in Revolt
The homemade sign for Mitt Romney in the yard of a well-manicured but modest home in Leadville, Colo., forlornly signals the fracture of another onetime supporter of Barack Obama.
If Romney wins the presidency on Tuesday, the national media, the Washington establishment and the bulk of academia will have missed something huge that happened in “flyover” America under their watch.
It is a story that few have told.
It reminds one of the famous quip by New Yorker film critic Pauline Kael following Richard Nixon’s landslide 1972 victory: “I live in a rather special world. I only know one person who voted for Nixon.”Two years after suffering a historic shellacking in the 2010 midterm election, Democrats astonishingly have ignored Main Street Americans’ unhappiness.
