Where did the anti-war movement go after Obama was elected?

Michael T. Heaney and Fabio Rojas found that half of democratic party voters  previously involved in anti-war protests under  President Bush withdrew from the anti-war movement upon the election of President Obama:

The withdrawal of Democratic activists changed the character of the anti-war movement by undermining broad coalitions in the movement and encouraging the formation of smaller, more radical coalitions

Not even  the loud, raucous and disruptive Code Pink stayed to its principle, and show themselves to be  bunch of Democratic party hacks – Heaney and Rojas explain:

Code Pink: Women for Peace continues to speak out against war, but it has devoted a greater proportion of its energy to other issues, such as health care reform and the Israeli-Palestinian crisis.

After Obama’s election as president, their surveys of 5,400 demonstrators at 27 protests from January 2007 to December 2009 showed that Democratic  party voter participation in anti-war activities plunged 37 per cent  of anti-war  protest this in January 2009 to 19 per cent in November 2009.
