If I'm reading this right, the Democrat Buttigieg is losing - ?

How does that happen - is it his name ?

Your precinct has a very eclectic voting pattern

Never underestimate the power of a name. Charlie White is a guy who lives next door. Vop Osili doesn't. I was going to say something else here but people would misinterpet it.

It's really unfair that we Americans are so simple as to vote on the basis of one's name, but it happens.

Noting how tribal is the Obama administration, from studying his picks for his cabinet and important department appointments, has been a wake-up call to American voters, who see the writing on the wall re loyalty to the tribe coming first. Let's hope that all ends well, but most certainly, Obama will never carry Indiana again.
