Canaries in the Coal Mine

New York

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?

  1. Nah, Stone, she’s just being a “bad girl” right now.
    Probably because she knows that bad girls…get spanked.

    I like ’em with a little bit of pepper sometimes. I bet you do, too.

    If she keeps it up after the spanking, we might have to use one of these:

    Do behave now, Denise. You have been warned.

  2. LOL.

    I do not like them with “pepper”. I have all the traditional masculine traits covered and them some. I like feminine behavior as modeled by my grandmother. Some how she manged to see he husband off to war on multiple occasions while he was one of SpecOps pioneers; see hers sons follow in their fathers footsteps and her grandsons do the same, while becoming one of the best dog breeders/ trainers in the the usa and never once act bitchy to any of us. And you best beware if you disrespected her men folk

    My work life is enough stress, who needs a woman with “pepper” adding stress to their life?

  3. Romney will pick a VP from a midwest rustbelt state. He wants power more than anything, but he’s not stupid. This year the election is all about the midwest. It’s key.

  4. Looks like the schmoozzies in hollywood are up to their old tricks.
    TCM teevee is playing “I Remember Mama” on June 20th.
    How cunning of “them”!
    The movie was releasead by RKO Radio Productions in 1948 and stars Irene Dunne (an excellent actress) and Barbara Bel Geddes ( not a lightweight thespian herself).
    It’s a very heartwarming tale of a Norwegian immigrant family in turn-of-the-century San Francisco.
    Irene Dunne, who plays the mother of the clan, is the focus of the movie–a traditional
    wife and mother ( no nights out with the girlzzz at chippendales, no sirre bob) she shows us what a traditional woman is all about.
    It is a very touching and poignant story of one family and a mother who is the heart and soul of the family.
    How cunning of these schmoozzies to do something like this to us. One must be very discening watching this movie, well you know…..
