Democrats are in more trouble than they think. And changing demographics won’t save them.

    Democrats are in more trouble than they think. And changing demographics won’t save them.

    "Greenberg and other Democratic writers concede that Republicans will continue to win the white working-class vote — composed, roughly speaking, of whites who do not have four-year college degrees. In 2012, President Obama won only 36 percent of these voters against Republican Mitt Romney; in 2014, Democrats won just 34 percent of these voters in House races.

    Though these voters are a declining proportion of the electorate —from about 65 percent in 1980 to about 35 percent today — they still hold the balance of power in the Deep South and in swing states like Iowa, Wisconsin, Ohio, Minnesota, and New Hampshire.

    Republicans also have two other groups that, unlike the white working class, are increasing in size: voters with a four-year, but not an advanced, college degree, and senior citizens."

    Sounds like the democrats could be defeated by white supremacy. But we live in a global village now. We'll just be a weak country if we can't unite all races, creeds and live in a society that supports everyone's rights equally.

    This isn't about race. Democrats are in trouble because their ideas suck.

    Any political party who puts others ahead of their own country should always lose....if the objective is to keep your country in tact.
