Low Turnout for Democratic Caucus in Woodinville, Obama Still Popular

A beautiful sunny day and a sitting president as the candidate was a combination that may be the reason for only a tenth of the 2008 turnout.


The crowd of about two dozen people that turned out for the Democratic Party caucus at Leota Junior High on Sunday afternoon was friendly, enthusiastic, and very small compared with the hundreds that showed up in 2008. Despite the low numbers, the support for President Obama was still high, with one person shouting out, “Go Barack,” when it was announced all present were voting for him.

Woodinville Patch was there live blogging the event () and talking with participants. There were 18 precincts at the Leota location, at least half had no one representing them and many had only one or two people.  

Once the votes had all been cast for the president the talk among caucus goers was of a proposed zipline in Gold Creek Park ().

Chairs were stacked and tables tucked away by 2:15 p.m. and everyone headed out to enjoy the rest of a sunny day.

Not sure why my comment about the Democratic Caucus was deleted. All I said was that maybe people don't really see that our votes count anymore. Read the restrictions you sent me as to why it was deleted and I couldn't find anything that applied? Was it deleted because the truth hurts?!

It wasn't deleted! At least I didn't delete it, but we are having major technical difficulties with comments not showing up, indeed I hope this one does. Our engineers have been working on it for a week. I apologize, but I assure you, if I ever delete a comment I will email you as to why.

Thanks Annie. I just wasn't sure why that happened. Just was my opinion about the state of our country. I am sure a lot of people would agree. :)

What does Obama stand for philosophically, and how do his actions support his grandiose promises? 2 questions.

Hi Jeff, what do any of our politicians stand for anymore. Nothing ever changes, no matter who we vote for. They pretend to be different, but they are two sides of the same coin unfortunately. So many subjects to cover I couldn't put them all in a blog unless it was a thousand pages!
