From Politico:

How Does a Straight White Male Democrat Run for President?
Very carefully.

By BILL SCHER February 17, 2019

Of the nine candidates officially running in the Democratic presidential primary, only one is a heterosexual white man. And that guy, former Rep. John Delaney, generally polls somewhere between zero and 1 percent.

But of the 17 Democrats reportedly still pondering a presidential bid, all but one is a straight white man. It’s hard to chalk that up to coincidence. Clearly, the women and minority candidates sensed that the water is warm for them, and the straight white men appear to be worried that this is just not their year.

CNN’s demographic number cruncher Ron Brownstein noted recently that the percentage of the Democratic primary electorate who are women, nonwhite voters and—“the most liberal component” of the party—college-educated white voters are all on the rise. The 2016 Democratic primary electorate was 58 percent women, 38 percent nonwhite voters and 37 percent college-educated white voters, all numbers that could be bigger in 2020, and strongly suggest a hospitable environment for candidates who embody a diverse America.

Does this mean that Democratic Party voters are so obsessed with identity politics that they are shutting straight white men out of the party? No. Who have been the top two candidates in nearly every primary poll? Not just two straight white males, but geriatric ones: Joe Biden and Bernie Sanders are the two oldest straight white men in the lot. In the most recent POLITICO/Morning Consult Democratic presidential primary tracking poll, the straight white male candidates, largely driven by Biden and Sanders, combined to garner 64 percent of the vote.

    No matter who he runs against, he’ll be re-elected. You can count on it.

    If Biden and Sanders are getting nearly 2/3 of the vote, that seems to suggest that Democrats aren’t especially anti-white or anti-male.

    Reports of the White male Democrat’s demise have been greatly exaggerated.

    It seems like any actual antipathy towards White males comes generally not from the base, but from party elites (donors, consultants, strategists, media, etc).

    I wonder if this disconnect between the Democratic base and Democratic elites is somehow related to Jewish influence. It seems like the most ardent opposition to White males comes from Jews, especially Jewish women. If Jews are highly overrepresented in the party’s leadership, that may explain why party leaders are so far apart from the actual voters.

    According to the four so-far-released polls from Feb. 2019:

    (Note: ‘Undecideds’ excluded for consistency, and Unsures may be half or more, so take these numbers for what they’re worth.)

    First Tier
    23-29%: Joe Biden
    16-22%: Bernie Sanders
    8-21%: Kamala Harris
    4-13% “Beto” O’Rourke
    5-9%: Elizabeth Warren

    Second Tier
    1-9%: Corey Booker
    ~5% Stacy Abrams (only appears in one poll)
    1-5% Amy Klobuchar
    1-3% Sherrod Brown
    1-3% Kirsten Gillibrand
    1-2%: Michael Bloomberg
    1-2% Julian Castro
    1-2% Tulsi Gabbard

    Third Tier (generally <1%)
    – Pete Buttigieg
    – John Delaney
    – John Hickenlooper
    – Eric Holder
    – Jay Inslee
    – Tim Kaine
    – Terry McAuliffe
    – Andrew Yang
    – Eric Garcetti
    – Gavin Newsom
    – Howard Schultz
    – Michael Bloomberg

  10. Biden, Bernie and Beto all would be strong candidates, but the System currently wants Kamala.

    Maybe not this election, but Gavin Newsom could also do well as long as California stays afloat.

  11. Except for Camel Toe, that “First Tier” is all white, and gets 48-73%.

    That’s adding their lows and highs separately; of course, they’re in competition, so one’s rise will come at the expense of the other. Splitting the difference gives 60.5%.

    A lot of this is name recognition. The two least known are from the two biggest states. Bernie and Biden still get half.

    I think it depends on who you mean by “Democrats.”

    If you mean the geriatric, narrow minded, archaic, morons who run the Democratic Party from the slime pit on the Potomac, then a straight male white person is wasting time to even think about running for president.

    It you are talking about mature, intelligent Democratic voters who live in contact with reality, then unless a straight male white person runs for president, they will stay home.

    The U.S. resident population may be ~20% Hispanic today (if including President Kushner’s beloved illegals), but among supposedly pro-Hispanic Blue-Team’s presidential contenders, they have no one of significance anywhere to be seen.

    Unless Julian Castro is a surprise breakout, there won’t be a Hispanic in serious running. No other person in the first, second, or even third tiers is a Hispanic, unless you count Whites with Hispanic nicknames (n=1).

  38. nebulafox says:

    If you are a young, straight white male and you don’t hate yourself by virtue of that… then the Democrats don’t have anything to offer you. Protestations to the contrary by the Usual Suspects just alienate such voters further, because it’ll be instantly disproved by the body and verbal language of these same Usual Suspects, often in the same sentence-the open contempt for their intelligence. This is more or less the mirror image of the long-standing dynamic between the GOP and black people. I think it is a little more subtle than “they hate you”: typically the local Republican response to having black volunteers is one of excitement, and I’m sure it’d be the same vice versa. But personal relationships and tribal identification can often drastically diverge.

    (This is part of why Jordan Peterson’s critics get absolutely nowhere with his fans. Plenty will readily admit his limitations. But that’s not the point: Peterson actually gives a damn about them as *ends in themselves*, to wax Kantian for a bit. His critics visibly don’t, and these young men can easily sense it. In the end, they’ll trust the guy who actually cares about their ultimate fate over those who don’t. And they will just get irritated if said critics insult their intelligence by pretending they do.)

    Of course, if this same young, straight white male isn’t affluent, the GOP doesn’t offer anything, either. But when stuck between two evils, people will typically opt for the one that at least doesn’t actively radiate disdain and contempt for them.

    I don’t really think there’s a very big push at all, starting from an early age on, for any Asian-American (1st or 2nd generation) to become a politician. A career in politics isn’t very lucrative (or secure) compared to law, medicine, or other STEM jobs—you have to take a variety of unpaid or low-paying internships, schmooze up to the right people, and get lucky enough to impress someone to get a foot in the door. It’s honestly more similar to going into the arts (acting, painting, writing, etc.), career trajectory-wise. Granted, if you keep at the politics gig you’re more likely to land on your feet, albeit in a lower paying position at some NGO/government job.

    That aside, when Asians do get involved in politics, it’s more often than not at a grassroots level to persuade elected officials. Rather than “fix things themselves,” their mentality is to have the elected officials do their jobs.

    It seems like any actual antipathy towards White males comes generally not from the base, but from party elites (donors, consultants, strategists, media, etc).

    The antipathy isn’t directed towards White males as such. The fight is against White identity, against White solidarity, against uppity White males. Biden, O’Rourke, and Sanders carry water for POC and for POC’s nationalism, colonization of the US, and identity. You can have a nice life for yourself and your family if you bow down to POC.

    I think things are going to change in this election, though. Politics isn’t just about getting votes, but getting sponsors, and Kamala Harris seems to be the darling of the Democratic donors.

    I suspect that a lot of the enthusiasm for “diversity” in the Democratic establishment isn’t just a way to motivate minority voters, but also a ploy to diminish the appeal of the mostly white anti-establishment candidates (mainly Sanders and Warren).

    Harris seems the best of both worlds. She’s Diverse enough to appeal to the minority voters and centrist/establishment enough to appeal to the donors, while also not being as deeply unpopular with the Sanders/Warren left as Clinton was.

    I can see Harris running on a platform of Diversity and Moderate Leftism, like Obama but with more focus on the Tragedy of Racism and Hatred, Open Borders (in a way that pleases corporate Democratic donors) and maybe a whiff of promises about law enforcement reforms and some vague economic center-left points.

    Warren will be an easy target because of her Indian shenanigans. Sanders will be tougher to smear, although he can always be #MeToo-ed if it’s convenient.

    I can’t see Biden actually winning the nomination, unless Harris accepts to be his running mate.

    I think Hillary views everyone as disposable depending on what is politically expedient to her. Even by politician standards, she is without shame or real principle. If white nationalism suddenly became the most popular political ideology, Hillary would become one of white people’s most vocal cheerleaders.

    As for Jeb, he obviously really likes Mexicans – many of whom, including his midget wife, are not very white – but perhaps you could share some evidence that he “hates white people.”

    • Agree: Thea
  74. Polls at this stage are mostly name recognition. As the campaign progresses, other names will become better known and support for the legacy candidates will diminish. If a heterosexual white male becomes a serious contender, something in his past (e.g.; #MeToo) will be found to discredit him. John Kerry will be the last heterosexual white male nominated for the presidency by the Democratic Party.

    LOL! After nothing but Boomers since Bill Clinton was elected in ’92, are the Democrats so out of ideas that they are considering supporting geriatric white men who were born in WWII? Actually, Sanders was born BEFORE Pearl Harbor. In 2020, Old Joe will be 78, and old Bernie 79. Is the Presidency so non-demanding that men of that age are up to the job?

    Remember that Reagan, elected at age 69, had Alzheimer’s in his 2nd term. Perhaps the same affliction is now affecting Trump, who will be a youngster, at 74, if he runs against them. Pelosi might as well throw her hat in the ring too. She’ll be 80, but women live 7 years longer than men.

  77. The Democrat contestants will not be able to criticize their opponents who are Diverse. That would make them Hitler. It will be fun to watch. Warren and Gabbard will be fair game. Warren pretended to be Diverse. Gabbard is opposed to war which is unheard of and is a Hindu. Christians suck. Jews and Muslims are oppressed. Hindus are just weird. Both will need a white man in the race to take the brunt of the hate. I don’t believe the polling on B&B. It does not appear that they believe it either. In any case the Nominee will be chosen by the DNC and the Super Delegates. I agree that Harris is the chosen one. Only the most highly educated (indoctrinated) whites will vote for her in the General Election proving once and for all that white people are Hitler.

    I doubt it. It’s demographics. But had President Trump acted like he Tweeted, then he would be a shoo-in for reelection next year.

    Bush the 1st had astronomical favorability/approval ratings (80%+) at this time in his Presidency.

    Bush the 2nd also had very high favorability/approval ratings (60%+) at this time in his Presidency.

    Then Bush the 1st lost in ’92 – remember he reneged on “No new taxes!” from ’88 prompting Ross Perot to enter the race and throwing the election to Clinton. And Bush the 2nd barely beat the doltish John Kerry in ’04 by squeaking out a couple of districts in Ohio when he should have won in a landslide.

    Trump doesn’t have the favorability ratings of either Bush and will be pummeled by his base next year for reneging on immigration, the wall and being soft on crime (thanks Jared!) – all of which he campaigned on. Trump won by the skin of his teeth and has not built his base. The disgruntled Trump voters will sit home as they’ve done in previous Presidential elections.

    No one is talking about it, but Paul Ryan screwed over Trump voters with the new tax reform. It’s going to get ugly when lots of middle class taxpayers realize they got shafted this year. I did my taxes and can’t believe I lost 2 deductions that I’ve used for 20 years. Now I owe the IRS for the first time in decades.

    Unfortunately there is no “Morning in America” commercial to save President Trump next year.

    And now the demographics are far worse for the GOP in 2020 than ever before. It’s over for the GOP as in California and New York – over, gone, goodbye GOP. Save your money, you’ll need it to bribe your way out of the U.S. when it becomes one big California/New York as the Democrats have Congress and the Presidency locked up for generations to come.

    I still don’t think the Democrats (or the voters) will go for someone who would be 78 at inauguration, but it does sound like one of the more likely ways to end up with Kamala as president in 2024. And as long as that is understood the anti-white male crowd might go along in 2020.

    Polls at this stage are mostly name recognition.

    It’s true.

    A look back at mid 2015 is instructive: The Donald immediately jumped into the first tier, within days of announcing, in 2015. This jump was inevitably because of name recognition. Rick Santorum or Tom Tancredo could have given the same speech and been ignored/crushed (which is, effectively, what happened).

    The Donald’s consistent appeals to nationalism, perhaps some mix of nebulously held true belief and a lifelong businessman’s instinct to pitch to a totally unserved market, only began to persuade people after a few weeks and months. The move to the top simply wouldn’t have happened absent his presence as a viable, first-tier candidate in the first place. (He was leading in polls at the decisive 30%+ level only by late August and early September 2015, and never gave up the first-place polling spot thereafter.)

    Lindsey Graham: 2%

    As you can see, Trump was immediately in the first tier, even if far from decisively ahead. This can only come down to name recognition.

    Joe Biden is the Jeb Bush of 2020. I remember when everybody in the mainstream media thought Jeb Bush had the 2016 GOP nomination in the bag and now they are saying the same thing regarding Joe Biden and the DNC nomination.

  91. White men, the kind that gave the world the airplane, the transistor, the internal combustion engine, the printing press and electricity are an obstacle to progress. They must be replaced with somalis, mexicans and others who would have invented all that stuff were it not for slavery and jim crow….or something! Trust me guys, itll work out.

  92. Semi-OT: But Real Clear Investigations has an article on the NYT’s #MeToo hatchet job against Black Harvard “Academic Star” Roland G. Fryer. https://www.realclearinvestigations.com/articles/2019/01/27/harvard_the_new_york_times_and_the_metoo_takedown_of_a_black_academic_star.html

    In response to being MeToo’d by the NYT, Fryer (unsurprisingly) is pushing back by playing the race card against his White female accusers.

    While Fryer declined to comment on the university’s procedures, his lawyer, Harvard law professor Ronald Sullivan, told me that “this process has been deeply flawed and deeply unfair. … It shows what the current [#MeToo] movement, some blood in the water, and good coaching [of witnesses] can produce.”

    Sullivan asserts that Harvard’s handling of Fryer’s case has been racially biased as well as procedurally flawed. Fryer wrote to a friend, and later shared with me, a letter stating: “30 years after watching my father be sentenced to 8 years in prison because of a ‘he say, she say’ type encounter with a white woman in Texas with no physical evidence, I am fighting every day to prove I am innocent of allegations that threaten the work I have devoted my life to.”

    Sullivan told me ODR “weighted the credibility of white witnesses far above minority witnesses” — the main complainant against Fryer is white — and that “in the absence of real data, the process used racial stereotypes.” As an example, he cited ODR’s disparagement of the credibility of Tanaya Devi, who was present for many of the allegedly harassing comments. Insisting that she saw no harassment, she spoke very highly of Fryer. Devi happens to be a dark-skinned native of India. Although the investigator and ODR praised the credibility of the complainant’s (white) roommate, they tended to dismiss Devi’s eyewitness recollections of what she saw and heard at EdLabs.

    “Roland was constantly portrayed as an over-sexualized black man who no one could tell no,” Sullivan added. “Yet, there was not one piece of evidence of someone telling him no and him doing something mean to them. … Angry black man who yells and berates. Even [a hostile witness whom he had fired] said in her interview that Roland’s so-called ‘yelling’ is not about raising his voice but it’s the intensity of his look and how his voice sounds.”

    But why would the NYT so viciously attack one of its most sacred objects — a Black Harvard academic? I mean, everyone know that the NYT privileges race above gender in the oppression Olympics. Well, here’s the answer to that particular riddle:

    Like Devi and other supporters, Alex Bell, a PhD student advised by Fryer, views him as a truth-seeker who asks questions other people dare not ask, entertains answers others dare not tolerate, and flouts convention – and that this has cost him. “It’s not just white people who think Roland is too black; black people also think Roland is too white, especially after his police shootings paper.”

    That July 2017 analysis “stoked a national debate” by finding no evidence of racial bias in police shootings, as the Times stressed in the first paragraph of its December 14 article portraying Fryer as a rampant sexual harasser. This, Fryer emailed me, was a signal by the Times to progressive readers that “he’s not one of us.” He explained: “To make me seem less human they highlighted the part of my research that was the most controversial and failed to mention that the same paper also found racial bias in the form of huge racial differences on lower-level uses of force.”

    The Times’ virtue signaling achieved its purpose. An Afrocentric magazine’s article on the sexual harassment allegations, for example, began: “The Harvard professor whose false and misleading research is routinely cited by white people now says that a sexual-misconduct investigation by Harvard University and the state of Massachusetts is based on false and misleading evidence.”

    TheAffair d’Fryer also sheds light on another NYT story featured in iSteve from a few weeks ago. http://www.unz.com/isteve/is-economics-more-successful-than-sociology-because-its-more-masculine-and-less-politically-correct/

    That story asserted that national crisis of oversexed economics professors was generally blocking female economists from expressing their innate genius in the field. No actual evidence was provided except for one woman who claimed she chose to wear khakis to make herself (even) less attractive to imagined economist-predators. The article was embarrassingly mock-worthy, even by NYT standards. In retrospect, however, the Times clearly felt it had to level the same allegations of sexual misconduct against hypothetical white economists in order to cover itself against a charge that it had singled out Fryer.

    To understand the Left you really have to read the NYT like the old Kremlinologists read Pravda.

  93. After George McGovern’s landslide defeat in 1972, political columnist David Broder came up with a way for Democrats to win the presidency. Broder wrote they should nominate a Southerner. In 1976, former Georgia governor Jimmy Carter was elected. A Northern liberal would have lost. Except for another Southerner, Bill Clinton, the Democrats couldn’t elect (Mondale, Dukakis, Kerry failed) a Northern liberal until 2008.

    Both Carter and Clinton were seen as moderates, of a sort.

    These numbers are basically name recognition at this point.

    My guess is that neither Biden or Sanders will be the nominee on just age grounds. Trump would be the oldest (major party) candidate ever. The Democrats countering that pretty clear line of attack–old out-of-touch geezer–would evaporate if they go with someone even old, Biden or Sanders.

    I would like that as the field narrows down and name recognition of the remaining candidates rises, the case for these guys would fade. (Sanders had more of an ideological case to keep him in the running.) And when it finally comes down to something close to one-on-one the younger candidate would be able to knock out the older guy. (Biden is a particularlly soft target, with a history of goofy guy gaffes and shoulder massages.)

    Uh, sorry, but there are plenty of smart, ambitious White males on the list. Take O’Rourke for example. Or are you one of these guys who says, “The Irish aren’t White”?

  131. “Don’t kid yourself. Jared Taylor said pretty much the same thing about California’s governorship two decades ago. Didn’t happen. They just got worse and worse whites.”

    it didn’t happen because there’s not enough africans in CA to affect the state voting much. but nationally, there are more than enough africans to affect the national voting.

    as mexico instructs us, the european upper class, outnumbered 10 to 1, will still retain political control of a latin america style nation. which is what CA has become. jared taylor got his details wrong. in latin america, you get worse and worse europeans, but europeans. the other groups rarely get a say.

    in 2019 america, the africans vote in a bloc. if they vote for you, you win. if they don’t show up to vote, your opponent has a chance.

    trump probably can’t beat ANY african or part african democrat in a national election by 2020. obviously the more crazy they are the more chance trump has, but the demographics at this point probably put the race out of any republican’s reach. hence steve’s declaration that the democrat party is the black party. if trump had MAGA’d for 2 years instead of wasting time, yeah. but not now.

  132. “Uh, sorry, but there are plenty of smart, ambitious White males on the list.”

    most of them are jewish or irish. as always. two clear and obvious historic enemies of the US as an expression of WASP existence. so, yeah. of course they are still onboard with destroying america. they always have been.

    and yeah, they’re slowly getting squeezed out by their vibrant allies. there’s only 1 or 2 election cycles left for these guys where they are realistic contenders.

  133. Or are you one of these guys who says, “The Irish aren’t White”?

    How many Irish are named “Beto”? Beto is post-white.

    Don’t forget the long history of Hispano-Hibernian collaboration. Resentment of the English fuels them both.

    “You say youre part gay or injun.”

    Elizabeth Warren should have said it’s racist to stereotype all Native Americans as having to look a certain way and that not all of us Native Americans look Filipino or Mexican, some of us Native Americans look White and some of us Native Americans look Black. We Native Americans are truly diverse when it comes to phenotypes.

    Right — and most of the white guys on that list aren’t inspiring much enthusiasm.

    I did say the process was “just beginning.” Biden and Sanders are from a different era. For that matter, so is Beto, who I believe represents the closing of that era — he’s about my age, and is old enough to remember a time when straight white guys were still welcome as Democratic leaders.

    The message white boys in their 20s and younger are getting is, “you are welcome to ride in the back of the bus, shoeshine boy.”

    I don’t think you mean deductions. For a married couple total deductions amount to $24,000 which is an above average amount for most families. It’s the exemptions that were eliminated, last year that would have amounted to $8,200 for a married couple. Eliminating exemptions put me in a higher tax bracket. I also believe raising deductions to $24,000 also hurt a lot of charities because now many people will not use itemized deductions.

    Moving expenses and medical expenses and others I realized later. And consider this quote about Doubleline Capital who run hedge funds written in TheStreet , “Somehow carried interest survives in this tax plan,” said Doubleline Capital CEO Jeffrey Gundlach on CNBC last week. “It is just unbelievable to me that that survives in the context of trying to have a tax reform. To me it does not sound like draining the swap, it sounds like maintaining the swamp.”

    Hillary got around this

    She famously lost the Black vote to a foreign-origin-seeming, foreign-looking, half-Black, unknown quantity in the 2008 primary season. She couldn’t keep Blacks loyal in 2008 and it cost her the presidency in 2008, and handed us the First Affirmative Action President.

    Could a White man have done better in the 2008 Blue-Team primary season?

    @Simply Simon

    I lost moving expenses and medical expenses. There are some others that were eliminated but I was not using most of them on the 2018 return. Kind of idiotic by Ryan to get rid of these considering they were deductions for Trump voter types like myself. It only makes me more angry that I voted for the orange guy.

    So it’s going to be O’Rourke

    If AnotherDad is correct and we exclude the two octogenarians-to-be (in the early 2020s), then “Beto” O’Rourke is, by process of elimination, the only contender left standing as the Great White-Male Democrat Hope.

    Chances of any other White-Christian-origin male coming anywhere near the nomination seem very, very low.

    ______________

    Allow me to propose a wild scenario by which a White male Democrat can pull off an unprecedented upset and grab the nomination:

    A White male Democrat runs on a nationalist platform, re-creating the Trump coalition from the Blue-Team side. In the General, second-term-candidate Trump may look more than ever like a ¡Jeb!-like, Red-Team Drone, All-Tweet-No-Action’er. The insurgent White Democrat could cut into the Trump base and win by taking his nationalist positions, while still keeping the Blue-Team base largely intact.

    The problem for such a White-male D would be getting through the primaries, of course.

    This is a low-probability event to say the least, some would say impossible given the racial-political situation. I know, I know. Still, let’s not forget the middle months of 2015, in which we witnessed what I describe but from the Red-Team side: A party-realigning political insurgency (MAGA) no one saw coming. Trump has since failed, but his movement can just as easily live on without him, even in new garb.

    Who could such a figure realistically be?

    I would suggest Jim Webb. Or a comparable figure. (Jim Webb himself looks likely to end up Secretary of Defense by circa March 2019 and if so will surely serve loyally and non-partisanly in that capacity, precluding him from a 2020 Blue-Team run.)

  145. @Buffalo Joe

    Sure, at the time, but I’ll bet that now a lot of them will remember that a) they were very young and impressionable and dealing with a much more powerful man (true) and b) they were probably really drunk and/or high (probably true also) so therefore, it was “rape”.

    I know you’ve been observing #metoo along with the rest of us. If a woman decides she was “raped” and particularly if a (((lawyer))) convinces her that there’s a lot of money to be made in a shakedown, it will happen.

    Hillary beat Trump 64%-28% among non-college-educated whites

    You meant Trump beat Hillary 64-28 among non-college Whites.

    _________________

    Your link, which cites Pew research from Dec. 2016, says:

    Race-education group [% of electorate]: Trump-Hillary vote split
    — Total, all races/education [100%]: 45-48

    — White non-Hispanic, no college [44%]: 64-28
    — White non-Hispanic, yes college [30%]: 38-55

    — Nonwhites – all kinds, no college [19%]: 18-77
    — Nonwhites – all kinds, yes college [7%]: 26-68

    (Whites are non-Hispanic only; White share of vote at 74% is higher than the CNN exit poll which said 71-72%.)

    _________________

    That means 25% [of Dem primary voters] were non-college-educated whites. Does that sound plausible?

    If this figure is correct, it is likely a reflection of legacy Democrats still living out a different political era (b.1940s and b.1950s in a lot of parts of the country), magnified by higher primary voter turnout among older and Whiter people.

    So, partly, a smaller scale version of how the Nov. 2016 electorate could be as high as 74% White (if Pew is correct) when the country is so much less White.

  147. @International Jew

    http://www.people-press.org/2018/08/09/an-examination-of-the-2016-electorate-based-on-validated-voters/

    That means the non-college-educated-whites share of the Dems’ voters should be not 25% but 37×28/64=16%.

    IJ, i share your visceral reaction. I see this and think “who the heck are those people! and what the heck are they thinking! But i don’t get your math here.

    My read from your Pew Center link:
    — 44% of the electorate was non-college educated whites
    — non-college whites broke 28/64 Hillary/Trump
    — while overall voters broke 48/45 Hillary/Trump

    If we assume the primary voters mirror the same demographics as the general–probably not true, but to first order–then the Democrat primary should have been:

    44% x (28/(28+64)) / (48/(48+45) = 25.9% pretty much in sync with their quoted 25%.

    (In words, for the non-college whites the Democrats got 28% out of a two-party 92% vote share–3o%. Whereas overall the got 48%/93% – 51.6% of the overall two party vote share. So this much lower ratio of non-college white support relative to overall support, whacks their non-college white electorate back by that .59 ratio to 26%.)

    I’ve heard them say that of many rock stars but I have not yet met a woman who SAID she fucked Mick Jagger. I have met Jerry Hall and (unfortunately, she was a c***) Marianne Faithfull, who we know have, but they didn’t tell that to me.

    Names I have heard first hand from the mouths of women stating they fucked them do include Steven Tyler, David Lee Roth, Tommy Lee and….don’t laugh…Donny Osmond.

    Ahab the Arab was Ray Stevens, not Kinky Friedman.

    “Ahab the Arab” is a novelty song written and recorded by Ray Stevens in 1962. In the song, Arab is pronounced “Ay-rab” to rhyme with Ahab. The hero of the story is Clyde the camel and Stevens has made references to Clyde numerous times throughout his career.
