Response to babylonsister (Original post)

9. Here is a link to the full article by Chait:

It's an EXCELLENT article - please read.

One point I wish he had included is in response to the admonition that white women need to convince their "sisters" not to vote for Trump. White women are 41% of the electorate, per Pew Research. This is the biggest demographic group in the electorate -- tens of millions of people, who live in every state. How exactly is a Democratic white woman living in an east coast metro area supposed to have even a passing social acquaintance with a Republican white woman living in rural Nebraska, let alone be in a position to influence her successfully? And, no one suggests that white men need to convince other white men to vote for Dems, even though this group is nearly as big as that of white women but far more likely to be Trump/GOP voters, so there is much more potentially to gain--why not?
