Calling Obama a Socialist: It’s Not Just for Republicans


According to a Democracy Corps poll, 55 percent of likely voters from all parties think “socialist” describes President Obama well or very well, which, while maybe not surprising, is still a lot. Also, everyone is really excited about this midterm election coming up. Seventy-six percent of those polled said they would definitely vote this November, and 16 percent said they probably would. So that would be a turnout rate in the nineties. Voter turnout for midterm elections typically hovers around the high thirties and low forties. [TPM]
