We predict, they comply

PoliPundit, 2010:

Unfortunately (for the nation, but fortunately for Republicans), I think an increasingly monolithic white vote will be a feature of future elections across the country, as Democrats cater more and more to their core racial constituencies.

That’s why the Midwest went so overwhelmingly Republican in 2010.

Every time Obama defends illegal immigrants, he sends more white voters fleeing into the arms of the GOP.

PoliPundit, 2011:

As in most countries with deep cultural divisions, “diversity” means that American voting will become polarized along racial/ethnic/religious lines. As white voters move towards minority status, they will become an increasingly monolithic voting bloc, just like other minority groups.

Science, now:

Using a nationally representative survey of self-identified politically “independent” whites, Craig and Richeson conducted three experiments. In the first, they asked respondents about the racial shift in California—if they had heard the state had become majority-minority. What they found was a significant shift toward Republican identification, which increased for those who lived closest to the West Coast.

In the second experiment, they focused on the overall U.S. shift with census projections of the national population. Again, they found that white Americans became more conservative—and more likely to endorse conservative policies—when they were aware of demographic changes that put them in the minority.

    Note, however, that if you’re black you are not black if you have conservative views.

    Poli:

    Let’s see…..

    minority group, check.
    easily identified by skin color, check
    subject to reverse discrimination, check
    most are already registered to vote, double check

    Sounds like it’s a ready made constituency for the Dems. Of course, some group would have to be thrown under the bus……Al Sharpton’s not going to be happy.

    TheTrools asked: “Your job, Jim, is to link to any and every report that shines negative light on the ACA.”

    http://pjmedia.com/tatler/2014/04/10/breaking-hhs-secretary-kathleen-sebelius-is-resigning/
    “Sebelius presided over the botched rollout of Healthcare.gov, and has been caught breaking federal laws against engaging in political activity on government time.”

    Speculation:
    http://www.redstate.com/2014/04/10/breaking-white-house-admits-democrats-will-lose-the-senate/
    “Kathleen Sebelius has resigned and “Senior Administration Officials” are telling the media it is because of healthcare.gov.
    You do not have a celebration event last week to celebrate 7 million sign ups and have Sebelius there to get credit then this week throw her under the bus …They have been standing with her since last October. They stood with her when the President’s polling was nosediving and throwing her under the bus could have stopped the bleeding.
    They are doing so now. …
    Why?
    Their internal polling must be terrible and they want her gone and the issue treated as “old news” …
    Sebelius leaving now is a pretty direct admission against interest that the Democrats expect to lose the Senate … Now, they’re just trying to slow the momentum down.

    Jim:

    “Kathleen Sebelius has resigned and “Senior Administration Officials” are telling the media it is because of healthcare.gov.”

    How can this be? The “research scientist” assured us that Obamacare had the majority support in the US. Perhaps he was under too much strain?

    • Jim,MtnView,CA,USA on April 11, 2014 at 4:01 am

      Yeah, it’s puzzling, isn’t it?

    • Jim,MtnViewCA,USA on April 11, 2014 at 6:43 am

      Still, uber-lib pundit Ezra Klein is contradicting “senior admin officials”. He says Sebelius would not have been allowed to resign unless Pres Obama was sure the program was in good shape.

      No. Really.

      The twitter-sphere has exploded in guffaws and pointed references to “lap dogs”.

    Jim, Jim, Jim, I expect better from you than schoolyard name calling.

    “Your job, Jim, is to link to any and every report that shines negative light on the ACA.”

    Selective quoting, another double standard. You purposefully left out the next two sentences of the post.

  6. The Trolls on April 10, 2014 at 8:41 pm

    Obamacare had the majority support in the US.

    You have that wrong.

    To correct you: a majority of Americans have long supported health care reform. Since the ACA became law a majority of Americans were against repeal. Just recently, outright support of the ACA has passed into a majority.

    In every instance the GOP was against the majority. How can this be? Perhaps the GOP is under too much strain?

  7. troll bait on April 11, 2014 at 2:44 am

    Of course the miserable wretched cowardly lying troll is correct.

    The nation is enthusiastically applauding the glorious totalitarian state and its dear leader.

    Darn! You might want to ring up the DNC and give them the good news. Call Kathleen Sebelius too!

      Comedy gold.
      Sebelius reads farewell speech and has a glitch “Unfortunately, a page is missing.”

      Work it out Ken, get it out of your system. You’ll feel better for it.

    Sen Barbara Boxer writes to tell me “Dear Friend: On Wednesday, Senate Republicans filibustered equal pay for women. Women earn on average just 77 cents for every dollar made by a man”

    As explained in the comments section in the prev thread, this is complete bull.
    Even dyed-in-the-wool ultra-lib columnists are averting their eyes. Here’s Ruth Marcus from WaPo: “the level of hyperbole — actually, of demagoguery — that Democrats have engaged in here is revolting”

      • Jim,MtnView,CA,USA on April 11, 2014 at 3:25 pm

        How about the $0.77 statistic that gets waved around.
        You buy into that?

        • Jake on April 11, 2014 at 4:14 pm

          Nope. Not following any of it. What I am buying, though, is Democrats setting up Republicans to further alienate the largest demographic in the country.

          • The Trolls on April 11, 2014 at 7:17 pm

            …the level of hyperbole…

            Yet, you joined in with the hilariously hyperbolic:

            “The nation is enthusiastically applauding the glorious totalitarian state and its dear leader.”
