Most likely yes, over which many unfamiliar to Common Core will no doubt scratch their heads. All officials who defended Common Core lost. All who attacked Common Core won. But what about where Common Core was not on the ballot or ever brought up?
If you hate Common Core, Obama gets the blame. Even though far removed, there are enough emails out there linking Obama to Common Core; (probably equal to as many as link him to being born in Kenya).
