Obama's Old Guy Says Dems Will Get Walloped in November


"It’s not going to be a good year..."

In key swing states this year, Democrats who want to expand early voting and Republicans who want to limit it, are battling to gain even the slightest electoral advantages by tinkering with the times, dates and places where people can vote early. Republican North Carolina Gov. Pat McCrory signed a law last year reducing the early voting days from 17 to 10 and eliminating same-day registration. The changes are being challenged by both the American Civil Liberties Union and the U.S. Justice Department. (AP Photo/The Wilmington Star-News, Mike Spencer, File)

Freed from the constraints of serving as the White House Press Secretary for the Obama administration, Jay Carney served up conventional wisdom bluntly Sunday morning: November's midterm elections will probably bring Democrats some pain.

Speaking candidly on CNN's "State of the Union," Carney stated:

It’s not going to be a good year for Democrats by definition. The sixth year is always particularly bad for a president’s party. You couple that with the fact so many seats are defended by Democrats in red states where Mitt Romney did very well against the president, double-digits in most cases, and there’s no outcome in November that anybody could say would be great for Democrats, except for barely holding onto the Senate.

Carney noted, however, that victory could be a double-edged sword for the GOP.

“The problem for Republicans if they win is Americans begin to think that, ‘We hate Congress,’ and it is now clear that one party is in control of Congress,” Carney noted.
