The fact that over 900 Democratic state legislators have been voted out is frequently mentioned on cable news. That number comes from a Larry Sabato post at Politico. Sabato excluded the one term presidencies of Jimmy Carter and Bush 41 and focused on the 8 two term presidencies since Roosevelt - Truman. Notice that Obama has been exceptionally hard on down ballot candidates. Not only did he lose the record 913 state legislators he also lost a record setting 69 congressional seats and euthanized the political careers of 13 senators. That's change you can believe in!
