ince their losses on Election Day, Republicans have been pointing fingers in every direction to explain what happened: the timing of Hurricane Sandy, Mitt Romney not fighting back enough and President Barack Obama "suppressing the vote."
In an interview with the AP on Wednesday, Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wis.) identified another culprit: an ignorant electorate. From the AP article:
Johnson attributed Obama's win on the heels of those Republican gains in Wisconsin to an uninformed electorate who voted in this election but not in the [Scott] Walker recall.
"If you aren't properly informed, if you don't understand the problems facing this nation, you are that much more prone to falling prey to demagoguing solutions. And the problem with demagoguing solutions is they don't work," Johnson said. "I am concerned about people who don't fully understand the very ugly math we are facing in this country."
