The Pix: Broward Ds At Inauguration

 

BY BUDDY NEVINS

 

A group of select Broward Democrats celebrated the inauguration of President Barack Obama in Washington this week.

They traveled to Washington comfortable in the knowledge that Broward’s overwhelming margin for Obama helped the president win a second term.

Many of these Ds posted photographs on social media.  Here are a few:

    Barney Frank & Jimmy Carter???? LOL.

  2. Lois says:

    …and we always hear that it is the REPUBLICANS who are mostly just old white people!

  3. Whatever says:

    I’d be honored to meet President Carter and Barney Frank. Great public servants, both. Better than LOL John Henry, whoever he is – I’m sure not the guy who owns the Red Sox. And, yes, it IS the Republicans who are mostly old white people.

    About the GOP — via the latest Presidential election.

    Seniors backed Romney by 56-44 percent, mostly unchanged from 2008.

    Non-whites made up 28 percent of the electorate, up a bit from 27 percent in 2008. This group largely backed Obama: 71 percent of Hispanics (it was 67 percent last time), and 93 percent of blacks (down a touch from 95 percent).

    Romney won among white voters by 20 percentage points. That’s up from McCain’s edge of +12 points in 2008. In addition, the share of votes cast by whites was lower (72 percent) than it has been going back to at least 1992.

    The Republican Party is winning by a landslide among white voters…and it’s not enough. White voters set an all time low in the percentage of voters, and given demographics, that number is only going to keep heading down.

    Meanwhile, despite a generally better election performance by Romney than McCain, Romney somehow managed to do even worse among Hispanics. Guess which population group is the fastest growing?

    Young voters were important to giving Obama his first term. Voters under age 30 showed up again this time: They represented 19 percent of all voters, one point higher than the 18 percent in 2008. Even so, they didn’t back him as strongly this time: 60 percent — down six points.

    Women, a traditional Democratic voting group, backed Obama by 11 points — about the same as by 13 points in 2008. Even so, married women backed Romney by 7 points (an improvement from McCain’s +3 showing).

    Men backed Romney (52-45 percent), and married men backed him by an even wider margin (60-38 percent).

    Buddy;

    One other thing I just remembered.

    Four years ago, the League of Cities was having their annual DC get-together right around the same time as the inauguration.

    In attendance that year was none other than Hallandale Beach Mayor Joy Cooper.

    Here’s the thing…

    Cooper flew back from DC so she could talk in the MLK parade, and then the very next day, flew back to DC to witness the Obama swearing in.

    All done courtesy of the HB taxpayer.

    If that doesn’t flip Dave Smith out, not sure what would.

    Best to you.

    It looks like Hazelle “the Lobbyist” Rogers didn’t waste any time attaching herself to former President Carter. Poor guy.

    Milk the system for all you can, Miss Piggy, because a criminal indictment is coming!
