With the 2018 midterms months away and the 2020 presidential election cycle approaching rapidly, Democrats are considering how to improve their poor showings in 2014 and 2016. The party has been debating sometimes heatedly how to do this. Which voters should they target? How should Democrats target them?
But heres whats clear: White voters have been fleeing the Democratic Party, and thats a big reason Democrats are looking to rebound from back-to-back losses.
Whites have slowly but consistently moved away from the Democratic Party. These recent losses are on top of Democrats losses among Southern whites during the 1960s and 1970s after Democrats support of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and the Voting Rights Act of 1965. Bill Clinton won 49 percent of the white two-party vote in 1996. Al Gore won 43 percent in 2000. John F. Kerry won 41 percent in 2004. Barack Obama won a slightly larger share in 2008, but then dropped to only 39 percent in his 2012 reelection bid. Hillary Clinton got the same percentage as Obama.
Obama was able to mask the Democratic Partys weakness among whites by prompting record-high turnout among African Americans, as well as strong turnout from other Democratic-leaning minority groups. Hillary Clinton was unable to generate the same level of enthusiasm from racial and ethnic minorities.

Well, defending MS-13 and throwing the working class overboard hasn’t helped either.
The Democrap Party HATES WHITE PEOPLE.
That much is obvious.
Why would they stay?
The unwritten story is that a lot of Blacks are also fleeing the Democrat Party.
Bit by bit, black Americans may wake up and follow suit.
So the dem party platform now is:
Women, Republicans hate you.
Gays, Republicans hate you.
Black, Republicans hate you.
Hispanics, Republicans hate you.
Oh, and Trump is bad, we hate Trump.
When you let it be known through your actions that you hate white people, they will tend to not like you back.

The ones who remain are those who have fallen for the claim that Democrats “look out for the little man.”
The dems would be nuts to run anyone but a minority in 2020, preferably male. I don’t think minority males turn out for a minority female like they would a male. The difference in the minority turnout between Clinton and Obama would have won the 2016 election for the dems.
There’s a lot of blacks waking up and packing their bags too.
The ones that stay, will eventually be killed off by the new democrats, not because of the lack of color in their skin, but because of the content of what they keep saying and keep doing.
>>Democrats losses among Southern whites during the 1960s and 1970s after Democrats support of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and the Voting Rights Act of 1965
ummm.. it was Southern Democrats (Russell, Byrd, Thurmond, etc) that filibustered the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and tried to filibuster the Voting Rights Act.
More lies and revisionist history from the enemedia.
It wasn’t that white walked away mad, it’s just that we see the folly in using whites’ money to finance their ridiculous demands, like AA, reparations, etc.
The left hates whites...even the white left.
No, untrue fake news spin
The Democrat party walked away from real Americans and now consists of the gullible and urban detritus.
