35. We don't need the majority of the White vote, but that doesn't mean that we don't need a significant

minority of it; failing enough White votes can likely put us right back where we were in 2010.

There's another point here too: Is the Democratic Party an authentically pro-Labor party or not? Is Labor authentically pro-Democratic Party or not? The answer to these reciprocal questions lies in the condition of Labor and Labor will NEVER come into its own unless it shares power with poor unions, including poor Whites. ALL of that is up for bids now and if Democrats want to write off poor Whites, because they ARE a problem in the Democrats' more racially diverse culture, I think that could turn out to be just be another instance of "Meet the 'new' boss; same as the old boss." Btw, if I'm reading the Paulian tea-leaves right, this will to some extent also affect young Americans too, who are less racially sensitive and more economic class sensitive.
