Barack Obama was the biggest factor.
When the Democrats can’t hold on to a seat they’ve held since 1922, that has three times as many registered Democrats than Republicans and that has a 40% Jewish population, that says something about how the people view this administration.
Obama is having trouble holding on to the urban Jewish vote. Chew on that for a little bit. In fact, the results of this race potentially open up 50 Democrat-held House seats when you consider that they can’t hold on to a D+5 district.
2012 is going to be so much fun.
