Democrats are struggling to explain it away entrances Republicans have made do with minorities, as the November election results show. Instead of listening to the concerns of the black and Spanish voters who voted President Trump after years to be insured that Trump is one of the "most racist presidents" in history – instead, Democrats blame them.
"Some Democrats argue that Mr. Trump's support is an example of machismo culture, honoring traditional gender roles and a kind of hyper masculinity," Reported the New York Times. But Axios admitted, “The media (and many Democrats) have no idea of the needs, wants and trends of Spanish voters. Top Latinos warned against overlooking and misinterpreting the fastest growing population in America, but most did not listen. "
The same goes for black voters (Trump got 4 percent more of the black vote over his 2016 numbers), but progressives like Chauncey DeVega on Salon still insist that white supremacy "now controls the Republican Party".
This is what they are missing: a new coalition is emerging. It's multi-ethnic, multi-racial – and it's conservative. It rejects the regimentation of identity politics and even rejects its associated language (net 3% For example, of Hispanics use the term & # 39; Latinx & # 39;). It's the working class and it's growing.
The new coalition rejects the premise of the & # 39; 1619 Project & # 39; of the New York Times, the great criticism of America, saying that the US is fundamentally racist and a real dystopia. They know better. It is the country where they or their parents or their grandparents came and in many cases fled. The America they experience is one of opportunity and freedom.
The left tells them the past was unbearable, but plans to make the future worse. Small businesses were owned by minorities hit disproportionately hard pandemic lockdowns, but the incoming Biden administration points to more of the same. Working from home is a privilege which blacks and Hispanics will enjoy much less.
They also reject any Green New Deal. In 2018, California attorneys served a massive civil rights lawsuit argue that the Golden State's climate policy disproportionately punishes the poor, especially blacks and Hispanics. “California's climate policy guarantees that housing, transportation and electricity prices will continue to rise,” the lawsuit says, “while 'gateway' jobs to the middle class for those without college degrees, such as production and logistics, will continue to settle in other countries.
Democrats promise California a model for the nation.
Above all, the new coalition has come together on jobs. They see Republican policies as more likely to create jobs, and Democratic policies less likely. They know this because they have seen it.
"During each of Trump / Pence's (first) three years, approximately 380,000 blacks rose from poverty, compared to just 80,000 for the Obama / Biden era," a Study at the University of Colorado found it. "More than half a million Hispanics climbed the economic ladder past the poverty line in each of Trump / Pence's three years, compared to just 150,000 for the Obama / Biden era."
We shouldn't ignore Asian Americans, who have also moved to R Camp in greater numbers. There is proof that positive action is behind much of that movement; the Trump administration has one lawsuit filed by Asian Americans against Harvard affirmative action policies. Again, it's all about opportunity.
The predominant story, of course, is that the GOP of the future is the male cave of the aging white man in decline. The truthHowever, the Republicans lost ground to white men on November 3, while gaining more support from white women and minorities.
For years, the left has divided America along the lines of race and gender, trying to unite these camps into a multi-ethnic working-class coalition. They have succeeded.
It's just that the working-class, multi-ethnic coalition is voting Republican.
