As President Obama concludes his reign of error, his party is smaller, weaker and ricketier than it has been since at least the 1940s. Behold the tremendous power that Democrats have frittered away — from January 2009 through the aftermath of Election Day — thanks to Obama and his ideas:
- Democrats surrendered the White House to political neophyte Donald J. Trump.
- US Senate seats slipped from 55 to 46, down 16 percent.
- US House seats fell from 256 to 194, down 24 percent.
- Democrats ran the Senate and House in 2009. Next year, they will control neither.
- Governorships slid from 28 to 16, down 43 percent.
- State legislatures (both chambers) plunged from 27 to 14, down 48 percent
- Trifectas (states with Democrat governors and both legislative chambers) cratered from 17 to 6, down 65 percent.
As Murdock observes, the Democrat Party is smaller and weaker now than at any point since the 1940s.
More than 1,000 federal and state-level Democrats were tossed from or denied office as Americans grew nauseated at trillions in "Stimulus" that stimulated nothing, a record-setting 8-years of moribund, sub-three percent GDP growth, a nearly 100 percent increase in the national debt, a revocation of America's AAA bond rating, and the collapse of Obamacare.
Obama plans on staying in Washington and remaining politically active. If the results of his community organizing in Chicago are any indication, President Trump should be quite pleased.
