Well, it seems it didn’t go well when the dems put the God and pro-Israel planks back in the platform. (I hate reading to catch up).
The delegates on the floor, though, appeared not to be in on the plan: Villaraigosa called for a voice vote three times, with Ayes rivaling Nays, and then forced through an affirmative over an unclear and noisy situation on the floor.
Several delegates told BuzzFeed they were dismayed by the chaos, and some objectors said they voted “no” because Villaraigosa had not explained the move. Other said they believed the vote reflected hostility to Israel among the delegates.
“I found it really disturbing,” said Patricia Ravitz, a delegate fro California. “I voted ‘yes’ very strongly, at the top of my lungs. I was surprised it was so close.”
“I was shocked so many people voted no. I don’t know what they were thinking,” said a delegate from Kansas, Carolyn Wims-Campbell.
They were obviously quite proud of their accomplishment and didn’t want the planks back in. That’s what they were thinking.
Well, this won’t play well with average voters. In fact, this will make it even worse.
Update: Talk about rotten optics.
