Key Democratic Party Constituencies Are Crumbling

There is a reason it doesn’t feel like Joe Biden is winning: He isn’t.

The Union Vote

Since long before 2020, the Democratic Party has been failing labor unions. In 2016, 2017, 2018, and long before, even left-leaning publications were warning that the Democratic Party was losing the working-class to populists promising a refocus on domestic manufacturing.

The African-American Vote

The Democratic Party has been taking the African-American vote for granted for way too long. Feeling entitled to the vote from Black communities has given Democrats a dangerous dose of overconfidence bordering on flippancy.

The Hispanic-American and Latin-American Vote

Joe Biden has a Latino problem, and it goes way beyond American-flag waving Cuban-Americans in Florida, who tend to be more conservative on the whole anyway.
