Kevin Drum wonders
why Obama does so well in state caucuses. But it's been established already that Clinton voters are "low information" by inclination, or for socio-economic reasons. So you'd expect them to have a smaller presence at a caucus.
It's funny that you would call Clinton voters "low information" when Obama may well be the most "low information" candidate in history. The one thing in common with every Obama supporter I have ever spoken to is that none of them, and I mean none of them can explain any of Obama's policy positions on any issue.
I attended the Washington state Democratic caucus yesterday (and even got roped into being a delegate at the county convention in April!) I voted for Obama.
When I asked Hillary partisans at my precinct table why they supported her, they all chanted "experience" like some sort of mantra. When I asked what experience they were referring to, one of them exclaimed, "She's been in the Senate four years longer than Obama!"
And two tables over was a loud, obnoxious flamer dressed head to toe in Hillary paraphernalia whom I overheard tell the Obama people at his table: "Did you know in Illinois, if a baby is born premature, they kill it? That's Obama!"
"Low information" Clinton voters? How about "No information" Clinton voters?
