The Democrats’ Democrat Problem

The Democrats’ Democrat Problem

(Robert Schlesinger, U.S. News & World Report) Failing to get voters to the polls could prove costly for Democrats … again.

Republican Advantage 2014

What’s the Democrats’ biggest problem this year? President Barack Obama’s upside down approval ratings? The Republicans’ determination to focus the contest on the consistently unpopular (though still more favored than the GOP) Affordable Care Act? No, the Democrats biggest problem in the fall is … Democratic voters.

Obama’s surprisingly solid victory over Mitt Romney – along with the fact that Democrats have won a plurality of the presidential vote in five of the last six elections – spurred buzz that the GOP seems to have ceded to the Democrats chunks of the electorate that will play an increasingly important role in coming contests. The president beat Romney by 11 points among women, by 24 points among voters 24 and under, by 44 points among Hispanics and by 87 points among black voters, all while losing whites and senior citizens by double-digit margins.

But midterm America is a different animal than presidential America, and Democrats have to deal with the downside of their successful presidential coalition. Specifically, the parts of the Democratic base that are so important in presidential contests – especially unmarried women, young voters and minorities, or the “rising American electorate,” as pollsters call them – just don’t turn out without a presidential top of the ticket.

“It’s very clear that our most significant challenge is not the Koch Brothers, not ACA, but turnout,” says the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee’s Justin Barasky. As Obama told Democratic donors last week: “We have this congenital disease, which is in midterm elections we don’t vote at the same rates.”

Why Isn’t Anyone Calling This Terrorism?

Why Isn’t Anyone Calling This Terrorism?

(Anthony F. Lemieux, Ph.D., Psychology Today) On April 13, Frazier Glenn Miller opened fire outside of a Jewish Community Center in Kansas City, killing 3. The word terrorism hasn’t been used and the term ‘hate crime’ has been tentatively applied. Would it have been different if the attack involved bombs that he learned to make in an online magazine? What about if he shouted ‘Allahu Akbar’ rather than ‘Heil Hitler?’

American policy exclusively reflects desires of the rich

Study: American policy exclusively reflects desires of the rich; citizens’ groups largely irrelevant

(Cory Doctorow, Boing Boing) In Testing Theories of American Politics: Elites, Interest Groups, and Average Citizens [PDF], a paper forthcoming in Perspectives on Politics by Princeton’s Martin Gilens and Northwestern’s Benjamin Page, the authors analyze 1,779 over the past 20+ years and conclude that policy makers respond exclusively to the needs of people in the 90th wealth percentile to the exclusion of pretty much every one else. Mass-scale intervention from citizens’ groups barely registers, while the desires of the richest ten percent of America dictate practically the entire national policy landscape.
