In a multiracial society, democracy is nothing more than a racial headcount. And it appears President Trump and the Republican Party failed to tap into this indisputable fact by not reaching out to non-college educated white voters in Pennsylvania, Michigan, and especially Wisconsin.

In the end, ranting about the low unemployment rate for blacks and promising a $500 billion Platinum Plan exclusive for blacks wasn’t something exactly speaking to these voiceless, beleaguered racial group. Instead of showing up to vote on November 3… they stayed home. Their collective vote wasn’t courted. [The Missing White Vote In Wisconsin Lost Trump The State, American Conservative, November 6, 2020]:

In the aftermath of the 2016 election, analysts on both the left and right noticed that President Trump had the potential to grow his base of white working-class voters. Five Thirty-Eight’s David Wasserman noted that over 44 million non-college-educated white voters who were not even registered to vote before the 2016 election concentrated heavily in the Midwest, including 2.6 million in Pennsylvania, 2.2 million in Ohio, 900,000 in Wisconsin, and 500,000 in Iowa. All the Trump campaign needed to do was locate them and register a fraction of them, and it would be smooth sailing till election day.

Rather than employing a strategy that looked to find the missing white working-class voter, the Trump campaign devised a plan to drive support from minority voters. They released both the Platinum Plan for black Americans and the American Dream plan for Hispanic Americans, promising hundreds of billion dollars to revive their communities and a series of other identity-driven policies.

This was successful to a point. The Hispanic turnout in Florida and Texas were large enough to deliver Trump a much larger victory than most people expected and helped keep Arizona and Nevada competitive even as he shed voters in the suburbs and among Independents as well as college-educated whites. Among black voters, exit polls showed Trump received 19 percent of the black voters between 25 and 44 years-old. However, he didn’t budge the number of older black Americas who make up a majority of voters in their racial group.

That plan was always doomed to fail due to the small share of minority voters in the Midwest that were up for grabs. There weren’t enough Hispanic voters or black Americans willing to flip to the GOP in those states. So they relied on their pool of existing voters and resting their fate on a ground game.

To the Trump campaign and the Wisconsin Republican Party’s credit, they ran a fantastic operation in the state. The President’s campaign increased his support and turnout in 22 of the 23 counties he flipped from President Obama in 2016. Even more astonishing, only two of those counties had turnout under 90 percent. Some counties like Price, Marquette, and Pepin had close to 95 percent turnout.

In the county of Kenosha, which saw race riots and acts of violence from Black Lives Matter supporters and members of Antifa, Trump increased his margin from .3 percent in 2016 to 3.2 percent in 2020, becoming the first Republican to win the county in back-to-back elections since 1928.

ORDER IT NOW

The ground game and high level of support from working-class white counties couldn’t make up because the missing white vote stayed missing. In the 23 Obama-Trump counties, the number of registered voters declined by nearly 8,000 voters from January 2017 to November 2020 even though the population increased in these areas.

So Trump’s campaign had to work harder with a smaller group of people. Most of the non-college-educated white Wisconsinites that didn’t vote in 2016 remained untapped in 2020. For over three years, the campaign spent hundreds of millions of dollars chasing phantom voters in deep blue states like New Mexico rather than looking at their natural base sitting underneath their nose.

Had those funds been redirected to registering and turning out between five and ten percent of those non-college-educated white voters they missed in 2016, they wouldn’t have to worry about suburbanites defecting to Biden. Fears of voters fraud or illegal vote count wouldn’t have been a concern if they just reached out to their natural constituency.

We have no idea what will ultimately happen in Wisconsin, Pennsylvania, Michigan, Georgia, Arizona, or Nevada (cough *massive voter fraud* cough), but it should be obvious by now: if Trump had just reached out non-college educated white voters in these states with a few programs geared toward uplifting their lives, we wouldn’t be on the cusp of a long legal battle to see who the POTUS will be in 2021. He’d have won in a massive landslide.

But no one wants to just explicitly appeal to white voters.

Not yet at least.

    When America eventually makes the switch from light bulbs to candles, white voters will be mighty appealing.

  2. Unless patriots take over this third world, corrupt nation; we are lost. Dems will stack the Supreme Court, make D.C. and Puerto Rico states, and allow millions in from Mexico who will vote democrat. They will ruin the country and that is what they and the internationalist wanted.

    Unfortunately, the lesson the republicans will take away from this is that they need to pander MORE to non-whites.

    I am just struck by how nonchalant the republicans have been to what is obviously massive fraud. Especially the republicans who were carried to victory by Trump. The democrats aren’t even bothering to dismiss the charges. I don’t even see pundits try to explain how the republicans could do so well down ballot yet lose the presidency.

    I expected Trump to throw us under the bus anyway. What is so disturbing is the acceptance of massive fraud by both sides.

    I always knew that we would not vote our way out of this. But KNOWING this is still unsettling.

    I’d agree that trump failed to embrace the very people who supported him. I agree his black-man-platinum-plan was a poorly timed idea, whether he intended to follow through with it or not.

    But the dog and pony show will go on with all the guarantees in place.

    The wars will go on.

    Blacks will be cultivated to create unrest and chaos.

  8. Trump was a disappointment, to be sure. He was thoroughly controlled by the Middle East PAC, pandered to blacks, and more precisely criminal blacks. The Platinum Plan was an absurdity.

    The country is in for some hard years ahead. The COVID fraud will be escalated. There will be some type of reparations for blacks. Biden will be replaced by this thoroughly unlikely character Kamala Harris. This individual’s career began by having sex with Willie Brown. Soon she will be President of the US. A more ridiculous end of this country is hard to imagine. Possibly we will shortly have a crack addict as President. Hunter Biden seems poised for this.

    The appeal wouldn’t even have to be specific, simple recognition of our existence would’ve been enough.

    This was Trump’s race to lose, and he indeed listened to (((Jared))) and fellated black phallus while neglecting Whites. Didn’t do fart-all about voter fraud, immigration or big tech censorship all four years, either.

  15. I have to disagree, to a point. What really doomed Trump was his buffoon like behavior. Women should never been given the right to vote, but now that they’ve had that right for over a century, politicians, for better or for worse, have to pander to the female mind. A large percentage of women don’t care about political ideology, and purely vote based on whether someone is “nice.”

    Trump could have fought back against the lying media and the leftist apparatus without picking some of the stupid fights he did on Twitter and elsewhere that turned women off. Without the college educated women (and their likely pushover husbands), Trump would have won by a lot.

  17. While I liked the article, ultimately “Trump didn’t win enough WWC/Non College Educated Whites” is over the bridge. When I hear this argument over and over again, it becomes more of a cope. As if the Democrats wouldn’t have cheated in Wisconsin or Pennsylvania. Trump was leading by 700, 000 in PA at one point and 400, 000 in Michigan. In Ohio and Iowa, Trump won by 8 points. Yet now we have to hear that he didn’t win enough people in the WWC. Of course, it does have a grain of truth. Trump was slipping with Whites and the WWC. But to chalk it up to only that, seems dishonest and a big cope. I think at the end of the day, the GOP must become the party of White Men, and this will require someone more nationalistic than Trump.

    If a voter decided to not vote for Trump after seeing what has happened in this country over the past four years then there is no persuading them. The Democratic Party is a criminal organization intent on imposing a Stalinist regime over the US. A handful of corporations are shutting down the public’s ability to see news or even communicate with each other.

    GoFundMe allows corrupt FBI agents to amass personal fortunes but won’t allow a GOP data expert to keep the $220,000 he raised to acquire the data bases he needs to screen for vote fraud. By what right does GoFundMe decide what is a worthy cause and what is not yet that is where we are in this country.

    The white working class did turn out to vote for Trump. The problem is the GOP is not a political machine able to engage in a criminal conspiracy to rig elections. That is the very definition of the modern Democrat party and why they ran a criminal as their candidate for the presidency. They must all hang together because they know they will all be hung separately if they lose power.

    Well, the counter argument to that would be that in courting blacks, Trump lost whites.

    Currently, due to the pandemic, EVERYONE is suffering from lack of jobs. So if Trump is talking about how well he did for blacks, there are a lot of whites out there thinking, “Well if he’s getting jobs for blacks, he ain’t getting no job for me.”

    There is some truth in that.

    In 1984, Reagan got 50 to 51 percent of the female vote.

    Back then I knew a liberal (and hot) woman who nevertheless liked Reagan on a personal level.

    Reagan was a former movie actor and in politics acted like a gentleman with a sense of humor. You hear about women liking ‘bad boys’ but more women like courtly men.

    When Chris Wallace went after Trump for ending critical race theory in public institutions in the first debate Trump couldn’t even say it targeted whites. He first said it was anti-American (the closest thing to antiwhite a politician will ever say), and then said that it targets “a certain people.” This allowed Wallace and Biden to frame it as teaching “tolerance” and “sensitivity.” They both know it’s antiwhite but if Trump can’t even say it they don’t need to worry about getting actual pushback on it. The only thing we got was a retweet that called it antiwhite.

    He spent years calling Ilhan Omar antisemitic and anti-American but couldn’t say the simple truth that they despise his white voter base. He’s had four years to say it just once but couldn’t muster it. Who cares if the media has a meltdown over him explicitly defending whites? All that would do is further expose the media as genocidal bigots to the entire country. He probably would have won easily had he actually stood up for whites, it would only take a few percentage points of the white vote to completely swing an election. But he was probably told by his handlers that he’d get the Steve King treatment despite having much more power and leeway than King, who was canned for merely asking why Western Civilization is now synonymous with white supremacy

Yes, Trump could have done a much better job of appealing to working-class whites, but let’s face it: he could have been up one million votes in Michigan and two million in Pennsylvania late Tuesday night, and they still would have “mysteriously”, “miraculously” found enough votes from 3 a.m. Wednesday onward to put the Corpse from Delaware over the top.

    My theory is that the Libertarian and Green parties are auxiliaries of the democrat and republican parties used as an electoral “shim” to help get the outcome needed. I used to vote Libertarian when they had sane candidates. I abandoned the Libertarians because their free-trade and pro-immigration policies have had several years of experimental testing and have shown to be failures. Goes to show you that seemingly logical arguments can miss things that experimental results reveal. Now the Libertarians don’t even have sane candidates like Ron Paul or Harry Browne. The LP candidate for VP this year apparently wore a boot on his head as his trademark.

    Good News – Bad News.

    First the Good News. This isn’t the worst moment. I grew up when in public school we practiced “Duck and Cover”. When the Cuban Missile Crisis was ongoing I started to build a Time Capsule. I really thought it was The End of Days. I put in some records that I hoped would be found much later amid the radioactive rubble.

    Biden will quite possibly bring about a very dark future, maybe Civil War. But the good news is that Civil War is far better than Nuclear War.

    The readership of this blog constantly bemoans the paucity of action on racial matters. Maybe a Civil War will precipitate some action. Trump would have kept any such painful cleansing distant. He was sincere about peace. Biden may accelerate the day when the festering boil of race pops.

    Now the Bad News. Biden may catch the virus. Kamala Harris.

    Long ago, and far away (South Africa, 2008), I observed the blatantly fraudulent “election” of Al Franken to the Senate and marvelled that the Republican party so meekly accepted it. I knew then that American politics were a farce.

    Briefly, to refresh your memory, the R’s won the Minnesota election by a narrow margin, and the D’s demanded a recount.

    Some districts were not recounted because the D’s “accepted” the original count.

    Boxes of uncounted ballots mysteriously appeared, in, among other places, a Dem election worker’s car trunk.

    When they had found enough votes to tip the election, the Dems called a halt to counting and claimed victory. “OK”, said the R’s.

    I don’t have to explain to you why that was outrageous. They were entitled to a recount, but not to a selective, partial recount. A full recount might well have tipped back. Letting them get away with that, it was obvious the R’s were taking a dive.

    The whole system is a joke. Even back in primitive Africa, elections were serious. Nobody votes without an official government issued photo identity document. And when you vote, they mark your thumbnail with an indelible marker, so you can’t vote again. Simple little precautions that any serious country can implement.

    The system is a mess and conservatives are idiots for trying to sell the free market as the solution when that has been the main problem.

    There is another problem which is that a lot of people will punish a popular alpha male out of spite. You get a phenomenon where losers of both genders take their frustrations out on an alpha male that is successful. When Trump was first elected most people didn’t take him seriously.

    I have wondered if women with pet husbands have a subconscious resentment of not being married to a strong and masculine man. Someone like Trump makes them view their husband with even more contempt.

  38. I saw a bizarre tv ad on Monday. A retired black NFLer was saying he’s voting for Trump. Why? Because Trump’s going to end mass incarceration of black men, while Biden is going to arrest even more. After a little bit of musing, it hit me that black men, especially footballers, and Trump are a natural pairing.

    – Black men are more likely to have children with many women – just like Trump.
    – Black men are vastly overrepresented in sexual assault accusations. Trump has 26 against him.
    – Many black footballers got into college while extremely unqualified academically. Trump got in with cash bribes and someone else taking his SAT’s.
    – Black men tend to boast loudly about even the most modest of achievements – just like Trump.
    – NFLers are flagrant, unapologetic adulterers – just like Trump
    – NFLers often go broke after football. Trump is 400 million dollars in debt despite being gifted billions, not paying taxes, and bilking taxpayers for $143 million in golf costs.
    – NFLers have Trump beaten on personal bravery. They do a dangerous job that can end at any minute. Trumps sends tweets from his bunker instructing his followers to go start a war. Also he uses tear gas and military police to walk to a church.

    Should have seen this coming!

    What happened this year in our election is the classic transition from a High-Trust White society to a Low-Trust non-White society.

    One of the key characteristics of the transition is the manipulation of systems by low-trust tribes to take advantage of the remaining high-trust constituents.

    “I always knew that we would not vote our way out of this.” So, why vote? The system is corrupted way beyond any hope of repair. The purpose of government is to decide who gets to kill and enslave with no consequences. Government rests on violence, always has.

    Barr & Durham played a part in this situation by not letting Americans see a report and indictments on the deep state coup before the election.

    Holding out that information was consequential in crippling Trump’s ability to frame a coherent reason for his constant defensive stance on why he could not make D.C. work.

  49. OT in Chicongo: Thousands of Biden-Harris supporters took over downtown streets in front of Trump tower. Dancing, chanting and acting like Boo Boo the Fool. I understand they’ve been cooped-up inside and are happy their candidate won but they act like they won the lottery. Meanwhile someone was shot at the Swisshotel a block away and groups looted Macy’s for the twelfth time this year.

    I couldn’t help but notice that the groups celebrating are diametrically opposed to each other. Blacks are not going to share power with LGBTQ, Muslims are not going to share power with Jews, Hispanics are not going to share power with Blacks and so forth. This reality will hit them soon enough…

No more writing “cringe” as a noun either, OK? “Cringeworthy” is fine. Really, if you cringe a lot, it’s usually because you are politically correct.

    “He’s had four years to say it just once but couldn’t muster it.”

    I think it might have sufficed if Trump had made multiple appearances of support at trade schools for plumbers, auto mechanics, welders, and the like. That way, he would not need to actually say the unsayable; it would be implicit. He could also have cultivated a working-class, white hobby.

    What are you babbling about? The republicans have been outvoted in 7 of the last 8 presidential elections, and yet have seated 15 of the last 20 scotus justices and 6 of the 9 currently on the court. Similar ratios on the lower courts. The US is the most right-wing developed nation in the world except for maybe Russia and a couple of religious states. Take your bullsh1t to fox nation where they believe anything. Unz still has a few truth detectors.

    And don’t worry. The USA train to fascism will barely slow down the next four years. Moscow Mitch already said he won’t let Biden seat a cabinet. Within a year the high court will take away health insurance from millions of working people, reproductive freedom from women, and even birth control if Slappy Thomas gets his way. Also Mayor Pete’s monogamous marriage will be declared illegal while Trump’s sham 3rd marriage will be left alone. The Koch brothers, Adelson, Sinclair, Salem, and Murdoch will still own 95% of the tv, radio, and newspapers, and Jared’s BFF Zuckerberg will still rule SocMed.

    We will not vote our way out of this, our goal is to survive.

  80. I have trouble believing the white male, especially blue-collar, vote went missing. Trump had a rally in western PA Saturday before the election where 57,000 people (57,000!!) showed up….that’s a lack of enthusiasm from his white blue-collar base???

    We only have the exit polls to show who voted what, what makes those polls believable since all polls were wrong, and the media never tells the truth? And did they actually exit poll white voters if they are blue or white collar? And if people didn’t want to admit before election they were voting for Trump, why would they after voting?

    Would white blue collar voters really rather see Biden than Trump in office? Maybe since I don’t watch any mainstream news is why I missed it, but I never heard of the Black platinum plan till after the election, and I would say I keep up on election and political events far more than the average American voter, so I don’t think “the Jared election strategy” bad as it may have been caused white voters to sit out Trump. Everybody, and I thought especially blue collar workers, were better off in the Trump economy certainly pre-covid than anytime in just about living memory.

    Probably the voter fraud is far deeper than even all the blatantly obvious 20 or so things the Deep State did to steal the election. Trump probably got 80M votes.

    Yeah, and the author is wrong. Trump still do better in white burbs in Texas than in the Rio Grande. He won a tiny county in the Rio Grande and other one, and won Collin County at 4 percent now Dallas and barely lost Tarrant.. In fact instead of the white working class in rural areas Trump just had to do about 2 percent better in some burbs like Bucks County PA. Trump won about 60 percent of whites without college and 37 percent of whites with college. Whites with college still higher than Latinos or blacks. In fact in Ca Trump did worst with whites in Riverside than Orange County where they finished college more.

    I well remember those days. People were quite content to vent their spleens upon South Africans without really knowing anything about the situation there. People foolishly could only see the situation through the lens of the American experience, and since Americans know everything and are anxious to tell the world what to do, they piled on with their harsh criticism and worse.

    When an opportunity came up to go there myself, I took it and I was left with a lifetime of positive impressions of white South Africans. I was ashamed of what our own government was doing to the country, including the Reagan administration. Just before my trip departed, the US government banned all direct flights between the USA and South Africa. (Thanks a lot, Ronnie.)

    Now that South Africa has gone dark and violent crime and corruption have spun out of control, I guess our all-knowing government has no problem with direct flights anymore.

    The sports addiction in this country is out of control.

    I used to work on an office in which the (white) guys would start off every morning talking about their “fantasy football team.” It was too weird for me. I couldn’t put “fantasy” into the same thought process as big black thugs wearing tight pants.

    My brothers and I used to get together about once a quarter for social get-togethers at some restaurant or night spot and invariably all they talked about was sports and sport players. Perhaps that’s because there were (and are) vast differences in our political beliefs so they unconsciously stayed away from more sensitive topics and just discussed the “safe” stuff.

    I didn’t care about their sports slobbering and, given the level of background noise in so many places, I couldn’t hear them talking anyway. That was probably for the best.

    I don’t blame Trump for being victimized by corruption, or for ignoring voters who should have the intelligence to vote for someone who helped to save American jobs, fought to protect their wages from illegal invaders (and actually got them real wage increases after inflation for the first time in ages), cut taxes, caused massive repatriation of money from foreign shelters, changed environmental rules to get us to energy independence (potentially saving many military lives from Mideast entanglements), made free loading Euro countries up their share of defense spending while ending their hiding behind dead American military personnel, and appointed hundreds of constitutionally friendly judges. I’m sure the list could go on, but I think everyone can grasp the point. If ANY group of voters did NOT get it, then it’s on them, not Trump. They get what they voted for, and what they stayed home to avoid taking the simplest of actions like voting. They get no free pass and no sympathy from me.

  92. Ed says:

    At the end of the day, Trump was done in by college educated white men. There’s evidence that the shy Trump voter was actually college educated white so men. It was college white guys that moved towards Biden. Many of these guys voted GOP down ballot. So blame them for Trump losing or better yet blame Trump for not tweaking his approach just a tiny bit.

    Blaming the white working class is ridiculous. Trump lost in key suburbs around the country. In Wisconsin Trump did better almost everywhere, except the Republican leaning suburbs of Milwaukee. He received 20,000 fewer votes there, which is the statewide margin.

    In PA, he got more votes out of Philly but got 100k fewer in its suburbs. That’s white suburbanites. Same story in AZ, got more Latino votes only to get fewer votes from white suburbanites.
