Political historians John B. Judis and Ruy Teixeira warn that the Democratic Party is losing working-class minorities, a crucial voting base.

They argue that the party has steadily lost support among working and middle-class voters, including Latino and Asian working-class voters.

The authors attribute this to the changing political landscape and the Democrats’ embrace of certain woke politics. (Trending: Top Democrat Loses In Historic Landslide)

They emphasize the need for the party to address its failures and focus on economic issues.

Democrats “have steadily lost the allegiance of ‘everyday Americans’ — the working- and middle-class voters that were at the core of the older New Deal coalition,” Judis and Teixeira stated.

“Initially, most of these voters were white, but in the last elections, Democrats have also begun to lose support among Latino and Asian working-class voters as well,” they wrote.

“Democrats continued to enjoy huge margins among black voters, but even here, those margins declined in 2020 by 5 points relative to 2016,” they added.

“In 2022, Democrats lost more ground among black voters, compounding their losses from 2020.”

“What began happening in the last decade is a defection, pure and simple, of working-class voters,” they wrote.

“That’s something that we really didn’t anticipate when we wrote ‘The Emerging Democratic Majority.’ The loss of working-class voters, who constitute the great majority of the electorate, could undermine Democrats’ chances not simply of being the majority party but of being competitive with the Republican Party.”

“Democrats, we believe, need to look in the mirror and examine the extent to which their own failures contributed to the rise of the most toxic tendencies on the political right.”

“But another transition point then hits in 2020,” Teixeira said.

“And that had been building for a while, which is the defection of non-white working-class voters for the Democratic Party.

“We can see in the polling data that’s been collected in the last year or two that the weaknesses of Democrats among non-white voters, particularly Hispanic and Black working-class voters, is pretty significant,” Teixeira added.

“They’re sort of realizing this is a problem. On the other hand, they’re so invested in this whole vector of cultural issues. They’re worried about the blowback on social media and from the college-educated ‘liberalish’ voters who are increasingly a loyal base of the Democratic Party.”

“Trump understood that, and he played upon it. He continues to play upon it. He continues to get votes upon it. And the Democrats are oblivious to it.”

This warning is echoed by Senator Bernie Sanders, who highlighted the party’s declining support among Latino and African American communities.

“It should be deeply worrying that, according to recent polls, Democrats are losing support within the Latino communities and even among African American men,” Sanders said.

“That has got to change, not just for the well-being of the Democratic Party, but for the future of our country.”

These concerns are underscored by polling data showing a decrease in support for Biden among non-white, non-college educated voters.
