Obama Funkifies CdA Press Readers

Readers of the Coeur d'Alene Press online were overwhelmingly dismayed by the re-election of President Barack Obama:

In a state that voted for Mitt Romney en masse, perhaps it's no wonder that readers of aren't wildly enthusiastic about the state of the nation. Asked, “With the election over, how optimistic are you now?”, here's how Press voters responded:

  • 389 voters said they're “very optimistic”
  • 259 voters said they're “the same as before”
  • 919 voters said they're “very pessimistic”

Question: Are you more optimistic/pessimistic than you were two weeks ago?
