The Guardian`s Harry J. Enten explains why the Republican coalition will still work in 2016. It`s all about the whites.
What a surprise. (Well, it is a surprise to see it in The Guardian, at least to see it without the usual invocations of irremediable white American racism, which are absent from Enten`s article.)[Why the Republican coalition will still work in 2016 |Predictions of demographic doom for the GOP are wishful: polling shows that winning big with white voters can deliver, guardian.co.uk, July 25 2013]
Enten has been reading Sean Trende and been listening to Establishment GOP big-mouths like Karl Rove. Enten seems to find Trende the more persuasive. Has Enten also been reading Steve Sailer, who was on to this first? If so, he doesn`t say. But there are many things one cannot say while writing for The Guardian...
The group Enten identifies as most critical to the GOP`s fortunes: non-college educated whites. He wastes no time on Republican fantasies about new Republicans from Latin America.
If Enten can see it, if VDARE.com`s writers and readers can see it, why could not one of Mitt Romney`s grotesquely overpaid consultants not see it? Or perhaps they did see, but could not bring themselves to try to appeal to such a disfavored demographic? And will they ever wake up?
