Pointing out that as a bloc 60% Of people with a POC demographic voted in 2018 and are likely to vote and vote demoratic party iin overwhelming percentages is factually accurate. However it only mentions 2018. POC voting was down in 2016 including in some battleground states. How far back doea Most Loyal Go? And how does it apply to POC who do not vote or only voted once fir Obama or vote Republican?

Here is a competing demographic. I am not positive how accurate these numbers are but close enough for my point. in 2008, 98 percent of Jews voted. Historically at an 80 percent democratic party rate although it has reduced in recent years to around 65 percent democrat butthe rest are not all republican. I think its around 14 percent republican. However, within jewish voters who dont care about israel is a bloc that always votes and always votes democratic so perhaps theae demcratic party jewish voters who are never miss a vote for democrats are "The Most Loyal". My father is 92 and has never missed a vote. Hard to say soneone else is More Loyal.

Better yet is to avoid using Most when talking to other democrats. Most is a comparative word and minimizes other outside of your identified most group. Maybe you and I are actually in The group of Most Loyal Demcrats.

To me THe Most Loyal Democrats are all democrats who vote and vote democrat whatever race or gender they are. which includes the people you want to praise and then I will add to your praise. Let us hope all Loyal Democrats put down the primary emotions and Vote Trump out. We need all of us


If I were to vote in a presidential
primary today, I would vote for:
