Watching hardball right now

He is wondering why democrats can't win white working class Americans.It's because a lot of them aren't voting on economics. They are voting because of racism, sexism, homophobia,etc...they don't want the "other" to succeed. They have been tricked in voting for republicans since Reagan. And that has cost them their union jobs.

1. Those explanations ignore the fact that there are "white working class Americans" in blue states.

Plenty of White Working Class Americans vote for Democrats in states like California and Oregon.

So maybe the problem isn't demographics so much as geography.
