  • White suburbanites painted as heroes & victims

    Oregon State ^ | 2008 | Matthew Lassiter
    During the final months of the U.S. race for the presidency, both major candidates claimed the “middle class” for their own, but what either meant by the term itself was left for voters to puzzle out. Confusion about the middle class—specifically, white suburban families—is nothing new, says Matthew Lassiter, a Research Fellow and associate professor of history at the University of Michigan. “For more than half a century, American political culture has celebrated white middle-class suburban families as the heart and soul of the nation, the hard-working, tax-paying heroes of Middle America, who safeguard traditional family values and maintain a...

    The most significant revelation in a new Pew Research Center analysis of partisan identification is the extent to which Democrats and Republicans no longer resemble one another demographically. Nearly 4 in 10 Democrats are nonwhite, while 83 percent of Republicans are white. Six in 10 Republicans are whites without a college degree; only a third of Democrats are. A third of Republicans are white evangelical Christians; a third of Democrats are religiously unaffiliated. Pew’s data highlighted two consistent trends: Women are much more likely to identify as Democrats than Republicans, while men are more split. White Americans (as was probably...
  • Bill Clinton once warned his wife not to ignore white voters - now he blames them for her loss

    Racist, misogynist, former Obama voters Throughout the 2016 election, Hillary Clinton made it clear that she had no interest in courting white voters. Instead of embracing everyone, Hillary embarked on a plan of “maximum identity politics.” She decided to divide the electorate, pit one group against another, and relegate whites (men in particular) to her infamous “basket of deplorables.” It was a deeply flawed strategy which grossly overestimate her ability to appeal to minority voters. In short, she thought she’d enjoy the same demographic turnout achieved by Barack Obama. For a whole host of reasons - chief among them her...

    It’s either that or the Magical Intersectional Muslim Transwomen Coalition. After a competitive race between the FBI and sexism, the left decided to blame “white people” for Hillary’s defeat. Racist white people refused to vote for a white woman who was married to the country’s first black president. Samantha Bee, who enjoyed 15 seconds of fame replacing John Oliver, Stephen Colbert and Jon Stewart as the whiny obnoxious lefty id, declared that white people ruined America. “Spare me the euphemisms. White people made Trump president,” a Washington Post headline blared. "White people did this. And maybe (hopefully) not my friends...

    oing into Election Day, liberal voters were nearly certain Hillary Clinton would be the next president of the United States. But then the votes started coming in, leaving liberals in a state of shock and wondering how Republican Donald Trump could possibly win given he was predicted to lose in all the major polls. “Saturday Night Live,” with the help of comedic genius Dave Chapelle, imagined what how election night might have gone among white Clinton supporters as they watched the results in real-time. Chris Rock also made a surprise appearance. At one point, one of the Hillary voters asks,...

    U.S. Rep. Stephen F. Lynch says it’s time for the Democratic Party to “get back to its roots” and refocus on speaking about the issues facing white, blue-collar workers now that the Republican Party has seized control of the White House and retained both the House and Senate. “This is a rebuilding year, I think we have to look at the results and where our weaknesses are,” an introspective Lynch told the Herald yesterday, three days after President-elect Donald Trump cruised to a surprise victory over Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton. “We are very, very progressive and sometimes we overlook that...

    White and Christian voters are abandoning the Democratic Party, according to a remarkable new analysis of political party demographics. The Pew Research Center found that there is now a 29-point white gap, the largest ever between the GOP and Democrats. According to the new analysis, "non-Hispanic whites make up 57 percent of all Democratic and Democratic-leaning registered voters, down significantly from 76 percent in 1992. By contrast, though the share of GOP voters who are white also has declined since 1992, the change has been much more modest: Currently, 86 percent of Republican and Republican-leaning registered voters are non-Hispanic whites,...

    DENVER -- Hillary Clinton's campaign is riding high. Polls show she's way ahead with women, minorities and college educated voters -- a coalition that's fundamentally large and strong enough to send her to the White House. But Donald Trump is a wild card of a candidate if there ever was one. So as her campaign looks to the election's final 90 days, cementing her victory in November is becoming all about one group of voters: White men who haven't gone to college. Clinton campaign aides know the former secretary of state won't win them overall. President Obama lost badly with...
  • Trump’s path to victory depends on surge of white men

    08/04/2016 1:55:21 PM PDT · by PROCON · 41 replies ^ | Aug. 4, 2016 | Alexander Bolton
    Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump needs a surge of white working-class voters to beat Hillary Clinton in November. Clinton has significant leads over Trump among minority voters and women, and is handily defeating him with white college-educated women. That puts pressure on Trump to win white men like no other candidate in recent history. Trump believes his anti-trade, anti-immigration message will be popular with white, working-class voters in Pennsylvania and Ohio, and that it could help him compete in other Rust Belt states such as Michigan and Wisconsin. His electoral strategy revolves around winning Pennsylvania, something the Republican nominee...
  • 5 Reasons Donald Trump Should Focus On The White Vote

    Prepare to be mindblown. A black dude is going to tell you why the GOP’s winning strategy is to focus like a laser on the white vote. One key result of the increased polarization happening in America under President Obama is that Republicans have a chance to decisively capture the white vote in a historic fashion. In fact, the key to a Trump victory will be the white vote, not the Hispanic vote, the black vote, or any other vote. Why? For one, the Democratic Party has already lost the white vote, and lost it big. Mitt Romney won the...

    It must be pretty sweet to be a white swing voter. Political campaigns blow millions of dollars catering to your every whim. Politicians ask what you think before they step out on a major policy program, despite the fact that your views aren’t representative of the majority of Americans. The changing demographics of this country mean it’s well past time to stop obsessing over a shrinking population that’s out of sync with the right direction for this country. Continuing to cater to those voters can have dire consequences, in politics and more importantly in policies that deeply impact people’s lives....
  • Weak and Getting Weaker: Electability argument against Trump in the general election is hardening

    Weekly Standard ^ | 04/10/2016 | Jonathan Last
    Of all the arguments against Donald Trump, the softest has been his poor prospects for victory in the general election. True, he has consistently polled worse against Hillary Clinton than have Ted Cruz, John Kasich, and virtually every other person who ran. But polls change. And if Trump were to win the Republican nomination, it would be such an earthquake that the political order might be transformed. Clinton, moreover, has huge vulnerabilities. She lacks many basic political skills, and she is a hostage to fortune—in both the usual way, as the heir to an incumbent president, and in the unusual...

    One of the many defeats American culture has suffered at the hands of the destructive influence of political correctness. It is always fine for a Black “comedian” to make crude jokes about White people, especially Southerners. But making fun of Blacks is simply never allowed. Not that we care to use the N word, but Whites are never permitted to use it even when they are condemning its use! So-called “ethnic jokes” may never, ever be uttered and the list goes on. Democrats can talk about how they want to appeal to Blacks and be praised in the media. But...

    Hillary Clinton has been doubling down on Obama's radical coalition strategy, but that depends on passionate base turnout and the only people passionate about Hillary hate her. Meanwhile the Democrats are losing white voters badly. "Democrats are hemorrhaging those voters and need to figure out how to stop the bleeding," said Mo Elleithee, a former top Democratic National Committee official who now runs Georgetown University's Institute of Politics and Public Service. "There could come a point where Democrats cannot afford to lose any more white voters. It's in the interest of Democrats to be taking steps to reverse that...

    In 2016, especially after President Barack Obama’s executive amnesty, Democrats may be on even thinner ice with white voters, especially white working-class males. Though the mainstream media wants to gin up the narrative that Republicans have trouble winning minorities, the 2014 midterm elections again showed, as Politico noted, “that Democrats have their own significant demographic vulnerability: working-class white voters. Republicans won white voters without a college degree by 30 points, 64 percent to 34 percent, according to exit polls, equal to their margin in the wave election of 2010.” In addition, “support for President Barack Obama among working-class whites has...

    WASHINGTON (AP) -- Voters who cast ballots in Tuesday's election had a strikingly similar demographic profile to those who voted in 2010 and weren't all that different from those voting in 2006. But how they voted this year was very different from years past. Exit polls are generally a bad way to measure changes in turnout. In addition to the usual concerns about sampling error in any poll, exit polls could show additional bias on some traits, such as race or population density. That's because the sample of precincts where voters fill out the surveys are chosen based on geography....

    The GOP doesn't have a "woman problem", but the Democrats have a "white woman problem" and a "white man problem". Hardly a week goes by without some Democratic Party hack putting finger to iPad and swiping out a screed about the Republican Party’s problem with women or minorities. This time it was Debbie Wasserman Schultz with “The GOP’s Woman Problem”. Schultz claims that the Republican Party was “rejected again by a bloc of voters that make up more than half of the electorate”. That claim is as real as Schultz’s hair color. The only bloc that rejected Romney was the...

    For all the attention paid to women in this race, there's another gender gap — with white men. The Republican ticket of Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan campaigned in northeastern Florida on Friday, where thousands of men had descended on Daytona Beach for the annual motorcycle festival Biketoberfest. A bunch of them were at Willie's Tropical Tattoo smoking cigarettes, drinking beer and listening to music. Gary Biser goes by the name "Moose." Stickers on his bike helmet say, "Life's too short to ride with ugly women," "No bar too far," and other things that can't be printed. He says he...

    Political analysts (including The Fix) spend a good bit of time these days talking about important voter groups — Latino voters and female voters, in particular. But all of the focus on these groups has obfuscated one fact: Mitt Romney is performing very, very well among white voters. And in fact, most recent polls show him winning the white vote by more than any GOP presidential candidate since Ronald Reagan.

    As the folks in the White House begin looking toward President Barack Obama’s presumed re-election campaign in 2012, there is one statistic that might worry them more than any other: Little more than a third of white voters currently think the president is doing a good job. That data point is hidden in the crosstabs of the myriad polls that show a very polarized nation that gives the president a middling job approval rating overall. Mr. Obama’s job approval rating remains in the mid-to-high-40s overall only because he gets a thumbs up from more than 90% of blacks and gets...
