What the Democrats don't want you to know: Party lost more than 1,030 seats in state legislatures, governor's mansions and Congress during Barack Obama's presidency

    Statistic reveals how Obama's leadership was rough on the party's grassroots
    Democrats now hold the governor's office and both legislative chambers in just five coastal states
    Obama's tenure has marked the greatest number of losses under any president in decades, according to experts
    He's indicated he intends to make partisan politics a bigger piece of his post-presidential life

But one number almost always goes unheard: more than 1,030 seats.

That's the number of spots in state legislatures, governor's mansions and Congress lost by Democrats during Obama's presidency.

After this year's elections, Democrats hold the governor's office and both legislative chambers in just five coastal states: Oregon, California, Connecticut, Rhode Island and Delaware. Republicans have the trifecta in 25, giving them control of a broad swath of the middle of the country.
