An activist has stated that the Clinton campaign wasted $1.8 billion on chasing “the white vote” during the campaign and should have spent that money targeting black voters who appeared less likely to turn out.
It is a sickness of the Left that they regard people as voting blocks instead of as individual Americans. They assume that if they create policy based on appealing to someone’s identity (colour, sexuality) that this is enough to warrant ecieving your vote. They were wrong.
Until they start treating people as individuals who have similar concerns (things that appeal to the majority of Americans), then they will continue to lose. Focus on Jobs, not race!
As reported in the Daily Caller:
The black activist and author asserted that the Democratic Party and former candidate Hillary Clinton wasted too much of the nearly $1.8 billion spent in the race chasing white supporters of President Donald Trump instead of campaigning in largely black neighborhoods to try and shore up the voter base.
Black voters didn’t show up on election day as a result, allowing Trump to take the lead in key states like Pennsylvania and Florida. Only 59.6 percent of all black citizens voted in the presidential race, down from 66 percent in 2012.
“By concentrating their firepower to vote again in 2018, Democrats can take back the House and also win the governor’s office in six key states – Arizona, Florida, Georgia, Ohio, Michigan, and Wisconsin – for a fraction of their budget, less than $100 million,” Phillips said.
