In yesterday's Arkansas and Kentucky primaries, more people voted for the two Democrats than for the four GOP candidates for president.   However  GOP presumptive nominee Mitt Romney picked up more total votes than President Obama (102,183 to 93,705).

In Arkansas, I61,207 Democrats voted for Barack Obama or John Wolfe, a first-time candidate from neighboring Tennessee with no political history.  Wolfe took 42% of that vote to Obama's 58%.  Just like Democrats all over the country who are growing weary of Obama's tax-and-spend politics, Arkansas Democrats selecting Wolfe were clearly voting against Obama.

Is this a glimpse of what could happen in November's general election?  We certainly hope so.  Another four years of Obama politics could 'transform" our country into something no American would recognize.  Forty-two percent of Arkansas Democrats agree!
