The Reason MSNBC Analyst Gives For Low Voter Turnout In Iowa Caucus Is The Most Absurd Thing You’ll Hear All Day
(Tea Party 247) – When it comes to making excuses for failure, the Democratic Party of the modern era completely lacks originiality and creativity. Why say that? Because every single time they screw up, they blame said screw up on the exact same thing.
It’s become very, very predictable. In fact, to illustrate said point, that’s precisely what MSNBC analyst Zerlina Maxwell blamed for low voter turnout at the Iowa caucus this week. It was all about “systemic racism” and the fact “white children are not in cages.”
You can’t make this insanity up, folks. Not in your wildest dreams.
Check out the details from Big League Politics:
MSNBC analyst Zerlina Maxwell blamed low Democrat turnout yesterday for the Iowa caucus on “systemic racism” while claiming that “white children are not in the cages” so white Iowa voters do not feel the “sense of urgency” that minority voters feel about removing President Trump from office.
“The Iowa caucus is essentially the perfect example of systemic racism. 91 percent of the voters in Iowa are white. The reason why you see a drop in turnout, I’m just speculating here, it could be perhaps that white children are not in the cages,” she said.
“So when you are talking about the tangible pain that black and brown people are feeling, they feel a sense of urgency because their kids are being put in cages, right?” she added.

While the MSNBC talking head wants to blame racism, the more likely explanation is a poor field of candidatesthat has failed to stimulate the interest of Democrat voters.
CNN has even admitted that this could be the case:
There’s still a lot we don’t know about the 2020 Iowa Democratic caucuses, including who won the contest.
But we do have an early indication about turnout. The Iowa Democratic Party said Monday night that early data showed it looked to be on pace with 2016, when 172,000 showed up to the caucuses.
If that trend holds, it will be disappointing to Democrats, who were hoping that a desire among those in their party to defeat President Donald Trump in November would produce a turnout closer to the nearly 240,000 who caucused in 2008.
The lack of a large turnout is the latest sign that Democrats may not be nearly as enthusiastic now as they were heading into the midterm elections.
You may recall that Democratic turnout in primaries was booming heading into the 2018 midterm elections. In fact, it was nearly triple the 2014 figure in competitive House primaries. This high turnout proceeded record turnout in the 2018 midterms and a wave election for Democrats in the US House.
Correlating presidential primary turnout with general election success is hard to do. Turnout is obviously lower when there isn’t a competitive primary (i.e. at least two competitors going at it), and the number of contests that are competitive within a primary differs from year to year.
Still, the lack of high turnout in 2016 compared to a similarly long primary in 2008 did foretell problems for Democrats in the fall. If the pattern continues, it also calls into question any candidate who claims that he or she will be able to bring out new voters in the fall.
The fact Democrats cry racism every time something goes wrong instead of acknowledging the real problem, which is their radical policy plaftform and lack of any real political talent for their base to choose from, is why nothing in their party every changes.
They have become stagnant in their growth and development, refusing to see the truth of how out of touch with regular American voters they have become. Americans have made it clear they do not want socialism. They do not want their freedom of speech stifled. They do not want their right to bear arms taken away.
And despite sending a rather clear message about all of this by electing President Trump, they continue to ignore it all and keep trying the samething over and over again, hoping for different results, the very definition of insanity, making the same excuses for their shortcomings.
