    The Democrats need to understand that upper-middle-class people are by definition a minority of any ethnicity and promote an economically populist agenda. By demonstrably siding with working people, they will not only attract back working- and middle-class white voters; they will also maintain the loyalty of working- and middle-class black, latino, and asian voters. Right now, the Dems are relying on those DLDGs continuing to perceive that the GOP is openly hostile to them --- as the diarist pointed out, not a long-term strategy.
    It may sound utopian, but it's worth a try.
