Wakeup Call for Democratic Party Leadership

In case anyone is still uncertain about why pissing off rank and file union members is a bad idea, a Hart Research Associates poll conducted for the AFL-CIO found that:

49% of Massachusetts union households voted for Mr. Brown, while 46% supported Democrat Martha Coakley.

Margin by which union members voted in MA-Sen on Tuesday:

Scott Brown: 49% Martha Coakley: 46%

This wakeup call for the Democratic party leadership could not be more clear, if you want labor's support in the 2010 elections, best to get moving on EFCA and the other worker's rights issues that have been ignored by Democrats for too long. -BD
