Oh looky here, seems Democrats have figured out they actually do need the evil, racist, bigoted, sexist, white man’s vote. Whoda thunk it?
Democratic presidential candidates and strategists debate how to appeal to working-class white men who voted for President Trump in 2016. https://t.co/QdXwTdlCtl

From the AP:
That’s left Democrats wondering whether the nominee should be someone who can cut deep into Trump’s base, picking off large numbers of working-class whites, whether it’s enough to win over affluent, college-educated, suburban men and whether the party is moving too far left to win them both.
“The white male vote is indispensable, it’s a part of any winning coalition,” said Democratic pollster Ronald Lester, who worked for Hillary Clinton’s campaign in 2016. He noted that successful national Democrats perform well with white men, and that includes Barack Obama, whose strength among white men in the Rust Belt helped fuel his White House victories in 2008 and 2012.
Sorry white guys, they didn’t mean to treat you like the scourge of the Earth for the past couple of years … holy crap.
Have you tried calling them racist? I hear that tests well. https://t.co/uNOi16pJ5G

Super well. They should go with that.
That bridge is already burned

Good luck with that. After you beat me and call me all kinds of names. You want my vote don't think so.

We knew Democrats were smug, conceited and fairly lacking in self-awareness but WOW.
Hmmmm…..That’s funny. I think that bridge has been burned. Stay focused on the new voters streaming into our country at will, and try to hang on to the African American vote by promising more stuff that never happens -reparations, hah!

Good luck. The Dems have pretty much alienated that demographic.

Too late…. working class people see how far left they have gone and dont want any part of it. Late term abortion, open borders, etc….

But they hate us, they tell us that all the time. Apparently, we are some damn boogeyman to them. No thanks

They didn’t MEAN it.
Democrats can forget about white male votes because they forgot about our interests a long time ago. You know. Stuff like God, Country, family and jobs. None of that matters to Democrats.

But Democrats think men should be able to abort their unborn child even after they’ve been born alive! C’mon, surely that will poll well with white men! No? How about raising their taxes? Taking their Second Amendment rights? Opening the borders? Hrm.
No wonder they’re worried.
