Yea, but the Republicans won in a state that HAD BEEN a Democrat state. Oh yea, from the time Reconstruction ended the Democrats ran the state. Between 1877 and 1972 all of their governors had been .... Democrats. And since then about half of the governors have been Republicans.Too bad Romper is still licking his wounds. Would be entertaining to see him spin this:
"While President Barack Obama doesn't exactly earn the love of the majority of the voters, he still came out with a 43 percent job approval rating, putting him five percentage points ahead of the governor. Louisiana is a red state Obama lost in the 2012 elections by more than 17 points."
In 2008 Obama won/lost 28/22 states and in 2012 26/24.
What did Clinton win/lose in 1992?? 32/18. And in 1996? 31/19.
An in 1994 the Democrats lost control of both Houses of Congress and in 2010 they lost the House and most likely the will lose the Senate in 2012!!!
Obama has been playing defence since February!!!
