Interesting election stat from CNN Radio

I was listening to CNN Radio on the net yesterday here at work and there was a segment that cited a very interesting statistic. The Democrats have not won more that 48% of the vote since 1976. That is 28 years ago.

I was thinking about the fact that out of the last 28 years, only 8 were served with a Democrat President in office.

12 years total, I think. Don't forget Jimmy Carter's term, 1977-1981.

Still I would think this should suggest to party officials that a major platform change should be looked at for 2008.

As a non-partison, here is my feeling on the Democrats.

I think that they have to loose the "tax and spend" label. I think that they need to drop the lunitic fringe and start aiming at the "normal" americans. I think that they need better "plans" when it comes to things like, "What are you going to do about Iraq?". And I think that they need better "charisma".

Just my humble opinion.

I agree. The need to lose the tax and spend label. Also, you said, the idea of saying "I have a plan" for everything and then not giving any details didn't work.

It seems to me, if you look at the results of most presidential elections for maybe the last 50 years or so, the winner was usually the guy who was able to appeal to not only his own party, but attract large numbers of voters from the opposition. See Nixon v. Mc'Govern in '72, Carter v. Ford in '76, Reagan v. Carter in 80 and again against Mondale in '84.
