It is perfectly reasonable for people living in difficult situations to vote for the candidate they believe can help fix the situation.Worst City in America Votes 98 Percent for Obama
November 10, 2012
20 percent of Detroit is on food stamps. Its violent crime rate is 5 times the national average and it’s rated as America’s Most Dangerous City.
40 percent of Detroit residents want to leave the city. Home prices have fallen 54 percent in the last 3 years. And Detroit has the highest poverty rate in the nation.
So guess who Detroit voted for by 98 percent? Obama, naturally. Because when you’re already living in a hellhole, your prime motivation is to drag the rest of the country in with you. The 40 percent of Detroiters who want to leave have drawn no conclusions about the causes of all their problems.
Like you, Detroit voters voted for the candidate they believed had their best interests at heart.
