Trouble for the Anti-White, Anti-Male, Anti-Heterosexual, Anti-American Party

Identity politics is organized hatred, and the problem with the Democratic Party is that they have become a party that is unequivocally against the interests of a majority of Americans:

“Despite demographic trends that continue to favor the Democrats, and despite Trump’s unpopularity among wide swathes of the electorate, it will still be difficult for the Democrats to prevail against an incumbent president who has presided over a growing, low-unemployment economy and retains strong loyalty among key sectors of the electorate,” write Ruy Teixeira and John Halpin of the Center for American Progress. No conservatives they.
The Democratic difficulty has a name: the Electoral College. Twice in the twenty-first century, the level of the presidential vote has mattered less than its distribution. Trump’s people are spread much more evenly across the country than his opponents are. His base of white voters without college degrees, say Teixeira and Halpin, “make up more than half of all eligible voters in critical Electoral College states he won in 2016—including Wisconsin, Michigan, and Pennsylvania—and in key target states for 2020 such as New Hampshire.”
Non-college white voters comprised the largest part of the electorate in 2016. Trump won them 63 percent to 31 percent. That margin more than compensated for his 7-point loss among whites with college degrees. Teixeira and Halpin predict that the number of white voters without college degrees will drop next year. But they also recognize that Trump can still win. “If he increased his support across states among these voters by 10 margin points, he would in fact carry the popular vote, albeit by just 1 percentage point.”
White voters without college degrees are the reserve army of the GOP. They are a falling percentage of the U.S. population but a rising percentage of the Republican Party.

(Hat-tip: Donald Douglas at American Power.)

Why did Hillary Clinton lose in 2016? It wasn’t just because working-class white men didn’t vote for her — a majority (53%) of white women also voted for Trump — but also because Hillary failed to generate the level of turnout among black voters that Obama got in the two previous elections. In other words, after Obama, some black voters have decided they won’t vote for white Democrats any more. That’s why candidates like Beto O’Rourke and Kirsten Gillibrand never caught on this cycle, and it’s why the likely nomination of Elizabeth Warren in 2020 will almost certainly be a disaster for Democrats. Does anyone think black voters are going to be excited about the fake Cherokee Harvard professor? In a desperate (and misguided) effort to win in 2020, Democrats and their media allies have doubled-down on identity politics, with feminists promoting an angry anti-male message and LGBTQ activists promoting insulting and offensive rhetoric against heterosexuals. Democrats are now the “Drag Queen Story Hour” party and the Angry Fat Woman party, and I don’t think that message will resonate with Middle America.

Democrats think that Trump is so unpopular that they can be as extreme as they want to be — confiscate all the guns! free college tuition for illegal aliens! abolish private health insurance! — and still win. And they never seem to consider the possibility maybe they’re wrong.

Why should white working-class voters in Michigan vote for Democrats, when Democrats have gone to such lengths to demonstrate how much they hate the white working class, simply for being white?
