As a follow-up to my Article written for (Chatt-a-box.com) and (Medium.com) yesterday,
I want to add this little bit of additional information in support of my theory that Democratic voters want stronger more clearly defined policies from their party as opposed to the lukewarm Republican-lite approach which has clearly alienated many voters the least of which is the militant left.
According to ( politics.myajc.com) Turnout among black voters soared in last month’s Georgia primary, a show of strength that could bode well for Democrats in this year’s contests for governor and other statewide offices.
The data show the broad majority of African-American voters pulled Democratic ballots, which could bolster the hope of Stacey Abrams, who is racing to be the nation’s first black female governor. Her Republican opponent will be decided in a July 24 runoff between Lt. Gov. Casey Cagle and Secretary of State Brian Kemp.
Abrams built her electoral strategy around energizing left-leaning voters, including minorities, with liberal stances on gun control, criminal justice initiatives, and tax policy. Her approach was vindicated with a whopping victory over her opponent, who aimed for a more centrist appeal.
A strong case to be made for the Democratic party to stop being a doormat for the Republican party which has now become a right-wing Fascist party of white men.
Sure voters who leave the Republican party or more appropriately whom the Republican party has left need a party which reflects their values. Nevertheless, the idea that so-called moderate Republicans will not support a stridently left-leaning Democratic Party which supports workers rights, universal healthcare for all, among other working class issues is patently wrong.
Never lose sight of the fact that many of those voters were actually called Reagan Democrats, and many of them voted for Barack Obama twice.
Voters want political parties which reflect their values.
