On that oh so “Broad” Demographic
Whether Politico is a right wing hack organization I don’t know, but this whining about how Obama has every demographic locked except one jut really hits me as fitting the stereotype of the white male grandiose sense of entitlement and virtue.
“If President Barack Obama wins, he will be the popular choice of Hispanics, African-Americans, single women and highly educated urban whites. That’s what the polling has consistently shown in the final days of the campaign. It looks more likely than not that he will lose independents, and it’s possible he will get a lower percentage of white voters than George W. Bush got of Hispanic voters in 2000.
A broad mandate this is not.”
Really! You earn all of the demographic groupings except for cranky rural white people and you don’t have a mandate! It explains why President Bush came away with fewer votes than his opponent in 2000 and ruled like he had the mandate of centuries.
