President Obama lost more than 40 percent of the vote in Tuesdays Kentucky Democratic primary to the uncommitted option the latest example of the incumbent president failing to win votes in an uncompetitive primary.
With 99 percent of precincts reporting in the Bluegrass State, Obama led uncommitted just 58 percent to 42 percent. Obama trailed in more than 60 Kentucky counties.
It was just the latest episode of the president taking less than 60 percent of the vote in a primary this year.
He ceded 41 percent of the vote in West Virginia to an incarcerated man in Texas named Keith Judd, and in Oklahoma, Obama lost several counties and won just 57 percent of the vote.
Kentuckys vote was notable, though, for the fact that there werent even any other candidates on the ballot. The most the uncommitted option won so far this primary season was previously 21 percent in the North Carolina primary earlier this month. Kentucky looks as though it will double that number.

Now imagine the media reaction if that President were named Bush. :)
If a Democrat Governor or Senator had seriously challenged Obama for the nomination, he could have been in serious trouble by now.
The bitter clingers are unhappy.
This is priceless. A sitting President doing this poorly against a political non-entity is not something I’ve seen before.
Who was the last sitting President before Obama to loose 40% to uncommitted on a primary ballot?
Obama shrugs off the snub, just bitter clingers to him.

With 19% of precincts reporting, he is also struggling in Arkansas:
Who was the last sitting President before Obama to loose 41% to a Texas prison inmate?
Now, good folks......don’t get giddy. We want to totally destroy Obama politically forever, and send the entire Democrat Party down into the cesspool of low life where they so rightfully belong, forever. Democrats=Traitors, Obama=America Hater. Keep up the good fight, no matter how good our outcome looks now.
Me either. Imagine if a GOP candidate ran this poorly?
Hillary is kicking herself.
[singing] Kentucky loser whines of his own misspent life...
More Popcorn, More Butter, Go Wolfie!
If THAT'S not a protest, I don't know what one is!
“Uncommitted” is more qualified than the current narcissist-in-chief.
This is the third state in which something similar has happened. I don’t care what current polls are showing. Obama is in deep trouble.
LOL. I got another chuckle about the dims whining about open primaries and blaming it all on GOP voters up to no good.
“The bitter clingers are unhappy.”
Well, the “coal thing” is a fairly big deal, between those who were mining it and those who found low electric rates one of the only bright spots of living here.
You're most welcome. I love sharing good news!
I suspect the news from Arkansas may be even better - Brak is losing 41% of the vote there to a man named John Wolfe, and I would not be surprised to see Wolfe hit 45% of the vote by the end of the evening.
Smell that? Smells like Victory!
