Democrats put a popular proposal on the statewide ballot; hordes of so-called “low information” voters flood the polls; the measure passes and the Democrats sweep to victory on the tide. That scenario is a recurring nightmare to many who are right of center in the political spectrum.

Clearly this is the issue Democrats have decided to pursue to distract voters and possibly avoid a backlash against Obamacare. They are promoting minimum wage hikes at state levels and at the national level.
