New Data Has Bad News For Democrats Who Use Identity Politics to Win Elections

Published

on

One of the left’s leading strategies to inflate their party numbers and win elections has been identity politics, however, new data is suggesting that this particular strategy is not paying off well for Democrats and their target voters.

Looks like liberals who love to divide Americans along racial lines are going to be sorely disappointed with the results of their battle plan.

FiveThirtyEight has been collecting data on the 811 non-incumbent candidates running in Democrat primaries, and has come to some interesting conclusions. For starters, “being a person of color doesn’t actively help a candidate win a Democratic primary,” three of the outlet’s reporters wrote.

About a quarter of Democrat candidates identified as nonwhite, according to FiveThirtyEight, yet had a winning record of just 28%. Not being white might actually hurt Democrat candidates, though the reporters make sure to note that the “relationship is not statistically significant.”

As for LGBT candidates, there are 34 running on the Democrat ticket, and are on par with candidates who don’t mention their sexual orientation – about 30%. This is also the same win percentage as millionaire self-funders and military veterans.

The only “identity” that appears to boost a Democrat candidate is being a woman.

“In fact, all else being equal, being a woman has been worth an additional 10 percentage points over being a man in the open Democratic primaries we looked at,” FiveThirtyEight reported. “That’s one of the two biggest effects we found among all the variables we looked at.”

The other effect that boosts a Democrat is having prior experience as an elected official, which seems pretty obvious. People who know how to win campaigns tend to win campaigns.

Now, will the left learn its lesson and stop employing such tactics in the future? Of course not. Because they are nuts, the definition of insanity being to try the same thing over and over again while expecting different results.

At the end of the day, the left has to be willing to accept that keeping folks divided along racial lines and gender, making these small aspects of humanity an individual’s entire identity, doesn’t jive well with the overall majority of American voters.

Failure to accept this will lead to certain failure going forward.

REPORT: Smollett Tells ‘Empire’ Castmates ‘I Swear to God, I Did Not Do This’

WOW! Really, dude?

“Empire” actor Jussie Smollett was arrest by the Chicago PD and charged with a felony for a reason.

Authorities have good reason to believe he staged a hate crime against himself. It’s that simple.

The brothers who “attacked” Jussie even said they were paid by the openly gay actor to go after him.

Now, it is being reported that Smollett told his castmates that he didn’t do it.

From Daily Wire:

Actor Jussie Smollett surrendered to authorities on Thursday morning after he was charged with felony disorderly conduct for allegedly filing a false police report. Later in the day, Smollett was released from prison on $100,000 bond and headed to the set of his Fox show, “Empire,” where he reportedly begged his castmates for forgiveness while simultaneously maintaining his innocence.

“Sources on the ‘Empire’ set tell us the cast and crew were waiting at least 30 minutes for Jussie to begin the scheduled scene. When he eventually showed his face he was very emotional, and surrounded by his family,” says a report from TMZ.

Smollett apparently told the cast: “I’m sorry I’ve put you all through this and not answered any calls. I wanted to say I’m sorry and, you know me, I would never do this to any of you, you are my family. I swear to God, I did not do this.”

Check out this clip of a gay black veteran ripping Smollett to pieces, because you’re certainly not going to see it on MSNBC anytime soon.

WATCH:

Powerful!

Kudos to this American hero for speaking up and calling out Jussie for attempting to incite a race war.

Smollett has also officially been charged with a felony:

Smollett has a history of lying to law enforcement.

Back in 2007, he “provided false information” after receiving a DUI.

From Daily Wire:

Jussie Smollett pleaded no contest to DUI, driving without a license, and providing false information to law enforcement officials in 2007, according to new reports released on Tuesday.

“Tuesday the Los Angeles City Attorney’s office confirmed that in August of 2007 Smollett pleaded no contest to DUI, driving without a license and providing false information to law enforcement,” CBS Chicago reported. “He was sentenced to two years probation and a choice of a fine or jail. Officials at the office could not confirm which Smollett chose. A spokesman for the Chicago Police Department said the department was already aware of the plea.”

Senators Kamala Harris (CA) and Cory Booker (NJ) are both running for president. The chances that either person secures the Democrat nomination are slim, at best.

After hearing that Smollett was the “victim” of a “hate crime,” both Booker and Harris rushed to slam the “attack” as a “modern day lynching.”

Of course, the country now knows that Smollett faked the attack and paid two brothers to orchestrate the whole thing.

Now, Harris is at a loss for words when confronted by a reporter asking about Smollett…

EXPOSED: Bernie Sanders Once Wrote Sex Fantasy About Woman Being Raped

Hey, MSM – Over here!

John Salvatore

Published

on

Vermont Democrat Socialist Bernie Sanders has a wild past that includes praising communist nations and disparaging the United States.

Also, he once penned an op-ed in the 70s about how women fantasize about being raped.

If Bernie was a Republican and the mainstream media got word of this, he’d be toast.

Fortunately for Bernie, he gets a pass.

From Federalist Papers:

On his radio show Wednesday, Glenn Beck and co-host Stu Burguiere took some time to revisit an essay Sanders wrote in 1972, originally for the Vermont Freeman. It’s…something else:

A man goes home and masturbates his typical fantasy. A woman on her knees, a woman tied up, a woman abused.

A woman enjoys intercourse with her man — as she fantasizes being raped by 3 men simultaneously.

The man and woman get dressed up on Sunday — and go to Church, or maybe to their ‘revolutionary’ political meeting.

Have you ever looked at the Stag, Man, Hero, Tough magazines on the shelf of your local bookstore? Do you know why the newspaper with the articles like ‘Girl 12 raped by 14 men’ sell so well? To what in us are they appealing?

WATCH:

Back in November 2018, dozens and dozens of people showed up for Florida gubernatorial candidate Andrew Gillum’s rally featuring Sanders as the main speaker.

And that’s about it.

It would appear as if the auditorium is darn near entirely empty.

WATCH:

While offering zero evidence, Bernie labeled President Trump using four despicable words.

Any guesses?

….take a second to think about it…

………………………………..

Here they are: racist, sexist, homophobic, and bigoted.

Not exactly original, Bernie.

Sanders noted:

I just returned on Saturday from a nine-state tour working with great candidates all across this country. And I can tell you there are candidates and supporters working hour after hour to make sure we end one-party control of the United States government. They are working to make certain that the agenda of the most racist, sexist, homophobic, bigoted president in history will go nowhere because Democrats will control the House and the Senate.

He continued:

While taking back the House and the Senate is obviously of enormous importance, it is not enough. What we need right now, in governors’ chairs all across this country, are governors who are gonna stand with the working people; they’re gonna stand with the elderly; they’re gonna stand with the children; they’re gonna stand with the poor, and they’re gonna fight for an agenda and an economy for all of us, not just the one percent.
