Thank You, Women and Minority Voters

Thank you, women and minority voters.  You’ve protected the Constitution.  Without you, we’d be sunk.

CNN Exit Polls, President 2012

From CNN Exit Poll reports, via Daily Kos. (In other news, Worst Candidate Ever gets 43.6%, expected to rise to 44-45% with provisional ballots.)

Luckily for Democrats, women are the majority and the proportion of minority voters is rising.  Now if we can just actually let people vote, within a reasonably small amount of hassle, if they’re qualified to vote….

Oh — and congratulations to Sharon Quirk-Silva — who looks to have won the 54th Democratic seat in the Assembly, giving (if Rudy Salas holds on in AD-32) Democrats a sort of supermajority.


About Greg Diamond

Worker's rights attorney now moving into "good governance" litigation. North Vice Chair of Democratic Party of Orange County and occasional candidate. Proud to be prolix. Unless otherwise specifically stated, his writings never speak for the Democratic Party at the local, county, state, national, or galactic level. He tries to either suppress or openly acknowledge his partisan, issue, ideological, and "good government" biases in most of his writing here. If you have a question about any particular writing, just ask him about it and (unless you are an pseudonymous troll) he will probably answer you at painful length. He lives in Brea but generally doesn't blog about it. A family member works as a campaign treasurer for Wendy Gabriella in AD-73; he doesn't directly profit from that relatively small compensation and it doesn't affect his coverage. He does advise some campaigns informally and without compensation, although in 2014 he may receive some compensation for campaign consulting and fundraising for the campaign of Jorge Lopez for Orange County Assessor.
