In an artical written in The Wall Street Journal, a poll showed 49% of union members voted for Scott Brown while 46% went for Martha Coakley.
You might think that’s pretty close but this is Massachusetts, bluest of the blue states, and very unionized. The AFL-CIO conducted the poll to find out what went wrong and why union members jumped ship and voted for a Republican.
The article states that union members did not see Coakley as being on “their side.” Does anyone reading this blog right now believe that? If so, please comment because I’d love to hear the logic behind this lunacy, because if you really believe that, you are not in the realm of reality.
THIS IS NOT ABOUT THE CANDIDATE... IT'S ABOUT CONTROL. UNION CONROL AND THE ABILITY TO DELIVER A VOTING BLOCK WITH SOLID RESULTS FOR LIBERALS.
Working men and women, middle class America, has been abandoned by all three houses in Washington when just 12 short months ago, they were riding a euphoric rocket to the stars believing they were finally going to be saved by the great messiah.
At least now the rest of us know these blind followers know the meaning of false prophet.
The switching of their votes had nothing to do with B.O. wanting to tax their Cadillac health plans by 40%? It had nothing to do with that… nothing at all.
Nice spin guys.
Just the fact that The AFL-CIO had to take this poll and then get together to talk about how they had lost control of their membership says it all. They expect their members to fall in line and vote Democrat no matter what the individual members think. Suddenly Indians were off the reservation. There was independent thought going on here.
“We can’t have members thinking before going to the polls. God forbid the rank and file break out of their horse collars. Baaad sheep…baaaaaaad sheep!!”
You are stuck on stupid. Stuck in the middle… With Unions.
