A Republican Party that Looks Like America

Republicans would be foolish to give up on minority voters, but even more foolish to give up on low- income white voters.

The TR’s might be defensible if their liberal social policies at least won over voters. They don’t. Instead they give us the worst of both worlds. Liberal and Transnational Republicans keep insisting that we should do a better job of reaching out to non-traditional voters. But they never succeed in actually doing it. Instead they blame the “radicalism” of the Republican Party for their failures.

The Republican Party does not need to “look like America.” That’s a Transnational Republican charade. It needs to actually look at America and start trying to relate to the voters that it used to have. And if it can do that, if it can actually find common ground with low-income voters, then it will find that it has increased its share among minority voters as well. It worked for Reagan. It might just work in 2016.

  1. A couple of things: 1) I think policies matter more than candidate profiles; and 2) if you watched the conventions, you couldn't help but be struck by the diversity of the audience behind the democratic speakers versus the almost total white audience behind the republicans. So much for diversity if that was their intent.

    Bill, I'd love to believe we (as a country) are well past the black & white thing, but it's clearly just subdued and lives on in the subtext. What I see clearly is CLASS WARFARE. The "haves" do not want the "have nots" to get ahead; they see life as a zero sum game. They presume they will lose if a poor person, which for the extreme right i.e., tea baggers, translates to a person of color, gets ahead.

    As for Joe the Plumber, the guy with a 6th grade education working long hours to pay for his trailer home and dish satellite 52" TV – he foolishly believes he can one day become part of the 1%. Duh. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4jQT7_rVxAE
