The Odd Thing About The Democrats’ Big Tent Approach: The Missing Identity

Since the Democratic convention, when it became clear that Democrats are trying to attract Republicans repulsed by Il Trumpe, there has been a lot of discussion about how Republican voters–more precisely, college-educated ones (the white part is implicit)–could be pulled from the Republicans’ orbit. Yet, when it comes to non-college educated whites (‘the white working class’), there is a general consensus that they are unreachable.

It’s almost like there’s an implicit identification occurring, that none dare mention. Puzzling.

    Seems to me it’s the uneducated part of that equation that the Democrats can’t reach – I think we all know why, too.

    Gene Doctor: Ayup! My daily contact with rightwinger co-workers/friends/relatives has educated me LOL. When you subscribe to the whole “southern redneck” culture meme, which most of them do, even if unconsciously, it is VERY difficult to re-educate them. They are getting their news from Fixed Noise and talk radio/Rushbo. These lies are fed to them 24/7 from the time they are teenagers, and they never look beyond the propaganda. It would require a herculean education effort for them to learn to research/evaluate claims and go with evidence. Evidence-based thinking is totally alien where their politics and religion are concerned. Never gonna happen.
