    So, white men who aren’t college professors, etc., automatically want to vote for “GOP” when it’s obvious that’s voting against their best interests (if they’re not rich)? At least some educated white men, who aren’t rich and have non-collegiate jobs, do actually vote for Democrats. What does the cartoonist think will get them to vote in larger numbers for Democrats? Drumpf lied enormously, slandered pretty much all of his opponents, and made idiotic promises he knew he couldn’t keep, but the rubes would buy. The Democrats will not do what Drumpf did in that campaign. No decent human being would do that.

    I’m sure it’s mere coincidence, but this comic mirrors the following commentary. http://www.nytimes.com/2016/11/20/opinion/sunday/the-end-of-identity-liberalism.html?_r=0

    Signe actually acknowledging that Democrats divide people into groups to pander to their special interests? See, Republicans are racist because they treat a human like a human and don’t take into consideration their skin color or gender or sexual orientation in order to treat them differently.

    And yet, apparently these 6 groups outvote the rest of the country by 2.5 million votes. I don’t belong to any of these 6, and have been a democratic voter for 40 + years. Calling BS on this panel. It’s a shame so many cornfields (pulling in federal subsidies in a democratic sponsored program) in the midwest have better representation in the Electoral College than the voters in the cities do.

    An inconvenient truth, and the reason the right will continue to fight to maintain district representation over popular vote.

    Since Trump lost the popular vote, isn’t this rather silly?

    U.S. Presidential vote :

    1996: GOP – 39 million / DEMS 47 million

    2000: DEMS – 51 million / GOP 51 million

    2004: DEMS – 59 million / GOP 62 million

    2008: GOP – 60 million / DEMS 70 million

    2012: GOP – 61 million / DEMS 66 million

    2016: GOP – 63 million / DEMS 65 million

    20 year count by party :

    GOP = 336 million

    DEMS = 358 million

    200 million Americans are now registered to vote for the first time in U.S. history. More than 50 million have registered to vote in the past eight years. Overall, 42 percent of the new voters registered this year lean Democratic, 29 percent lean Republican, and 28 percent lean independent.

    The GOP treats anybody with enough money the same, and they get their own entrance.They treat anybody without so much money according to how close they are to being a straight male WASP with no physical handicaps, and the closer you are to being one, the more fair it all looks to you.

    The big mistake the democrats made was more or less ignoring the common middle class. They were so busy focusing on all of the other groups they forgot a big part of their base. The handwriting is on the wall because the demographics continue to change. I suspect Trump will give them a really big boost when he screws up everything.

    @Ted Lind

    That’s a fine conspiracy theory you’ve got there, Ted. Would you care to offer us some kind- any kind of remotely substantial evidence to back that up?

     

    Have you read and studied the Democratic Party’s platform? It specifically calls for tax relief for the middle class, student loan debt relief for the middle class, investments in education to benefit the middle class, strengthening trade unions to benefit the middle class, closing loop-holes for the rich…et al.

    Inform yourself, please.

    Today:

    “The Republican Party holds a sizable advantage in leaned party affiliation among white voters. This year, 54% of white registered voters identify as Republican or lean toward the GOP, while just 39% affiliate with the Democratic Party or lean Democratic. While that represents only a modest shift since 2012, when Republicans led by a 12-point margin (52%-40%), in 2008 leaned partisan alignment among whites was closely divided (46% Republican, 44% Democratic). The current 15-point GOP edge in leaned partisan affiliation is as wide an advantage for the Republican Party among white voters as Pew Research Center has measured over the past 24 years.”

    .

    Tomorrow:

    “Among Millennials, the youngest adult generation (today ages 18-35), 41% identify as independents, compared with 34% who identify as Democrats and just 22% who identify as Republicans. The share of Millennials who identify as independent is up eight points since 2008.

    On leaned party affiliation, however, Millennials have a strong Democratic orientation. By 57% to 36% more Millennial voters identify as Democrats or lean Democratic than identify as Republican or lean Republican."

    Crooked Trump’s pay for play cabinet of 1% billionaires certainly represents you, not.
