Voter Reliability


Among the killjoy curmudgeons who insist that Barack Obama’s scores of swooning groupies don’t mean he will win the nomination, a favorite wet-blanket is the argument that the type of person inclined to infatuation is not the same as the type inclined to actually go and vote. The New York Times’s City Room blog provides some rather startling evidence for that proposition: apparently the Obama Girl herself, Amber Lee Ettinger, did not actually make it to the voting booth this week. The arduous trip from New York City to New Jersey was too much to ask, it turns out.
