The Media Does Not Want to Talk About The Divided State

Does America Vote Too Much?

“In the meantime, the election is over,” writes the Boston Globe. “As of 8 p.m. today, at least 44% of registered voters have cast ballots — a record high. That’s more than the 42% in 2000 and more than the 38% cast in 2004.

“Democrats dominate the voting booths, while Republicans and independents are in sporadic but strong support.

“At a time when a strong economy and a booming stock market, a better than expected job market and a stable political climate have helped fuel voter enthusiasm, the results are a testament to electoral success.

“‘People have the opportunity to make this election one that will be talked about for a long time,’ said Jim Naureckas, a longtime political and media consultant, who is based in Washington. ‘Democrats seem to be benefiting more than Republicans.’”

This is no surprise. The media – which is overwhelmingly Democratic, but which has the power to shape public opinion – does not want to talk about the obvious: that the country is far more divided than at any time since World War II.

President Obama’s 2008 campaign was an extraordinary expression of this divided view. In that campaign, Obama won more votes in the most polarizing year since 1976, while losing in less divisive years. The country, in other words, is in a far more divided state today.

One of the great problems of the modern day is that the media does not want to talk about this in any meaningful way because the media is a Democrat operation and the press is in the pocket of the Democratic Party. They are afraid to report it because they want to remain the news.

The country’s divided state is not a big problem for Obama, because he is a more than credible and popular politician. It is a big problem for the country because it will ultimately impact our national security.

Because of this, we must turn to the people. The people of Georgia cannot be taken for granted, and the people of California cannot be expected to vote in a national election without an extraordinary amount of trust,
