I believe this comes from the same guy who claimed the Democrats had officially abandoned the White working class:
“Over the past few decades, working class whites – loosely defined as those without college degrees – have been a strikingly reliable indicator of the strength of the two main political parties. These voters are highly volatile and their shifting loyalties are a powerful factor in determining control of Congress and of the White House, according to recently re-analyzed exit poll data provided to the Times by Alan Abramowitz, a political scientist at Emory, and Sam Best, a political scientist at the University of Connecticut.
Take a look at the fluctuating level of support white non-college voters gave to Democratic congressional candidates between 1984, when exit polls first asked respondents about their level of education, and 2010.”
Note: I’m not sure that I understand the logic of the anti-White electoral strategy. How can the Democrats possibly win the White House if they lose Pennsylvania, Ohio, Michigan, Indiana, Wisconsin, Iowa, and Minnesota?
Colorado, Nevada, and New Mexico have 20 electoral votes. This is more than offset by the 47 electoral votes in Greater Appalachia which were already lost to the Democrats in the 1990s and 2000s: WV, MO, TN, OK, AR, and KY. There are 70 electoral votes in the Rust Belt states of OH, PA, MI, WI, IA where White working class voters are predominant.
Couldn’t an explicit appeal by Republicans to the racial and class interests of the White working class devastate the Democrats? How might that affect their margins in the Southwest? Isn’t the challenge the White working class voters in Pennsylvania and Ohio to vote like those in West Virginia?
