27. Another DUer pointed out something I found very illuminating:

Stipulating that there will always be severe economic disparity in this country, the proportion of whites getting the shaft is less than the proportion of non-whites getting the shaft. (He ran some numbers on this, but I don't have the links. It's a reasonable concept though, ne-c'est pas?) Ergo, if the misery were to be spread more equally, more whites would fall off the cliff that are now holding on precariously. By claiming that the Dems want to spread the misery more equally, the Republicans capture this white vote.

Which I thought was a pretty good retort to dems who mock them po' old rednecks for "voting against their best interests."
