Say what you will about the guy, but the liberal establishment really, really, really hates his guts.
That says something for him, I’m not sure what, but it says something.
Uh, who do you think elected him in the first place? It was LIBERAL DEMOCRATS who make up the majority of the NY electorate. Rudy won the Jewish vote, got 43% of the Latino vote and even got 20% of the black vote (the latter for his second term run against Messinger).
(True) Independents, Republicans and (dare I say it) white Christians are a small minority in NYC.
