Message from Freiheit - CA in Nice Respectable People Group #general
People don't usually vote based on ideology. They vote based on social groups. College educated whites women in particular can afford to live away from the downsides of diversity and vote based on virtue signaling
Republicans need to co-opt some left wing policies to appeal to working class people
just... uh... don't frame it that way
And women vote their hormones.
Ah, I see now. Interesting, I remember those older maps, you know "this is how the election would have turned out if only x voted," and the map for white women was still very red, though less than for men.
Having kids makes the biggest difference in how women vote. It matters for men too, but less so
I'd allow that compromise. Maybe women who own land too?
We should host voting drives in working class white areas as was suggested by @Jacob
ya this tbh
Family vote would also give the people in general more power.
Since less votes = more value per vote.
I would say we should focus on the suburbs too, but the working class first and foremost
How about just making people pass a civics test to become a registered voter? I'd say 80% of dems and 70% of republicans couldn't pass the citizenship test
It seems that republicans have lost popularity among all whites.
George Washington's mother. Yeah
@Josh M. -OH That's the one. Race and college make the biggest difference. What that map tells me is that if college weren't a commie brainwashing camp and the country were white supermajority, it wouldn't really matter if women voted or not.
Those maps are 2012. Trump won whites in Iowa and Minnesota
@TMatthews I’ve been saying that since I was an elitist teenager. Problem is most Libs will pass that and many Deplorables won’t.
What's going on with young whites?
@Deleted User Most libs couldn't name ten presidents or half the bill of rights
Is Iowa really that blue?
How do they get "college-educated _anything_" into a map like that? I mean...it's not at all something required to put on voter registration.
Seems to me they got their numbers from exit polls. Which have proven to be a complete disaster.
Romney alienated the working class big time
@Gregory - NC polling probably, plus college major is now on the census
how was Iowa red in 2016, when even whites made Iowa blue in 2012?
Why are whites 18-29 voting dem by 13 points? Dafuq?
ah okay I get it
@ThisIsChris I mean...but census doesn't, ya know, count how people vote lol
Whites of all ages voted for Trump (although 40-65 was his best demo). Romney was terrible at appealing to young voters and Obama was good at it
Romney came off as so creepy
