Since President Obama took office at noon on January 20th, 2009, Democrats have suffered a net loss of 1,042 state and federal posts, including congressional and state legislative seats, governorships…and now the presidency itself.
Democrats occupied 55 Senate seats when the President took office. They will have 46 now. Their keisters sat atop 256 seats in the House on that fateful inauguration day. That number will now be 194. And Democratic governorships have nearly gone the way of the passenger pigeon. There were 28 states headed by Democrats at the beginning of 2009. There will be 16 in 2017. The Obama Era coincided with the loss of 958 state legislative seats for Democrats.
Back in September, Obama declared that his “legacy’s on the ballot.”
Yet the President recently claimed that if he would’ve been allowed to run for a third term, he would have won.
Good thing for Democrats that he didn’t.
