  •  Why Democrats need to do better with white voters (0+ / 0-)

    Democrats who rely purely on the demographics of their constituents often ignore the issues. Living in bright blue NYC, I see lots of machine politicians who care only about hiring their relatives to imaginary jobs (they are of both parties, but we have more Democrats here).

    Democrats today don't get the white vote outside New England, the upper midwest and to a lesser degree the northwest and a few urban areas. Its no secret that some of the nation's most liberal politicians recently are from these same areas. Think Sanders, Wellstone, Feingold, Harkin, Franken. Compare with the senators of the two biggest blue non-white states: Feinstein, Schumer, Boxer, Hillary, and Gillibrand.
