Skip to comments.THE RISKS OF ROMANCING THE WHITE MALE VOTER
Posted on 04/25/2019 9:57:22 PM PDT by GuavaCheesePuff
The general election of 2020 was supposed to be a light at the end of the tunnel, a finishing blow for Donald Trump, and a mass rebuke of the bigotry that has fueled his support. Supposed to be is the operative phrase here. In one very important way, Donald Trump has already won the 2020 presidential election.
Democrats Know They Need White Male Voters, blares an AP headline from earlier this month. The article cites Trumps overwhelming support from white men (63 percent of whom voted Trump in 2016, with a smaller 60 percent majority voting Republican in the 2018 midterms) as a key reason for the Democrats 2016 loss. In response, Democratic strategists and politicians are singing the praises of the almighty white guy: The white male vote is indispensable, says former Hillary Clinton pollster Ronald Lester. Democratic strategist Mike Mikus claims the partys future rests with somewhat conservative, Trump-averse men who have, at least temporarily, put their Republican Party membership card in their pocket for a while.

We are not a demographic that believes people we know despise us for being white and male.
If you think women don’t like sexism and racism pandering, we’ve got them beat in hating that, in spades.
we do not suffer those that have designs to murder us off, that say, the world would be better off without us. The massive benefits of the world we live in, that everyone takes for grnated, would not exist without us.
Go build your own bridges and highways, cars and homes.
I laughed throughout the entire article. Schadenfreude
Being white=bigotry according to liberals. This was the first of many reasons I never really voted Democrat and will never vote Democrat in the future. They just dont change.
I LOVE being male and white, with Italian roots to boot :)
Minorities don’t scare me, never have, even in wolf packs. (5 at the staten island ferry) they backed down cause that’s what they are”
I make good money, got a good wife, don’t have to live with the animals in projects.
Got a nice house in a nice neighborhood.
Don’t need any liberal women in my life and don’t have any.
Got my Dodge Challenger out front.
Donald Trump in the White House.
I’d say it’s a DAMN GOOD time to be a white guy :)
And if you’re stupid enough to push us to far, we’ll eliminate entire groups, we don’t #### around once we get started.
That’s a message to liberals. But they won’t get it until it’s too late.
So the Democrats have figured out they need white voters ...
yet they continue to portray whites as racist bigots, constantly denounce the alleged “white privilege”, demand whites step aside to make opportunities for minorities, and now demand that Whitey pay reparations ...
they really think this is a winning strategy??
“And if youre stupid enough to push us to far, well eliminate entire groups, we dont #### around once we get started.”
Democrats Woo Racist, Bigoted Misogynists!!!
Thats what they are. Screw them.
College-educated white women do seem to be leaving the Republican party long-term; a 51 percent majority voted for Hillary Clinton, and a larger 59 percent majority voted blue in the midterms.
I wasn't laughing when the results came in from the 2018 midterm elections.
The Republicans lost the midterms in the suburbs and lost it their primarily because they lost eight points from white, educated females. We white conservative males reading this feminists tripe might be truculent, we might be smug, we might be oblivious but Democrat professionals are not. They look at these numbers and they are encouraged for 2020. That is why virtually every male Democrat candidate for president is coming out of the starting gate proclaiming that he will select a female vice president.
This swing cost us the House of Representatives and it could very well cost us the White House in 2020. Hillary could not energize this female vote just as she could not energize the African-American vote. How about Kamela Harris, could she energize both? It does no good to bluster about race wars, the need is to understand why suburban white women departed the party in 2018 and get them back into the fold where they were in 2016.
I think it is a given that Trump will get out his base but the map of the electoral college is such that his narrow victories in the rust belt might be overturned if these women vote the way they voted in 2018. We cannot count on having a presidential candidate with the toxic baggage that cost Hillary Clinton the election she should have won. She was a singularly unlikable human being with a public record of corruption a mile-long. We shall not be so fortunate in 2020.
So the Democrats are trying to appeal to displaced non-college educated white male voters in the rust belt and Republicans should be appealing to white suburban college-educated women in the suburbs. That is why we see Bernie Sanders so artfully co-opting much of the Trump message and that is why we see male Democrat candidates promising female vice presidents.
In 2020 we must demonstrate to American mothers that their children are at risk at school, on the streets, in the hospitals from open borders. Their husbands are at risk on the job from open immigration. There health care is at risk from crazy schemes. The Democrats have demonstrated with Russia Gate that they cannot be trusted with power. Finally, they must be convinced that a Democrat victory will tear away all of the prosperity for them and their families created by Trump.
The question is, how does one craft a message to reach these women and how does one craft a message to reach an even more difficult demographic, single women. As Sigmund Freud said, "what does a woman want?" I certainly do not know, but I do know that threatening civil war is probably not the best method of persuasion or seduction.
Trenchant, as ever.
I wonder if it occurs to anyone that calling Trump and white males Nazis may not be the way to get them? That in fact it might just have some pretty serious unintended consequences?
Do a search for Emily Goldstein and her article about how ...and thats a good thing.
Is the Challenger a new one or one of the old ones? I have seen a few 68s that have been redone with modern ignitions and such. Serious beast of a car.
Like I say, they might want to be a little bit careful about repeatedly calling us Nazis...
Perhaps we should embrace the suck. Maybe if we formed a national group that reassured mothers we had their children at heart when we supported things that need to be done for their sake? Maybe we could even come up with a snappy uniform to wear to signal OUR virtue. Something designed by, oh, say, someone like Hugo Boss?
