Democrats Woo White Men

The New York Times looks at how the Democratic party is working to "win over white men, especially working-class men without college degrees, at a time when Democrats are gaining support from growing numbers of female and minority voters."

"It is a challenge that runs throughout the nation's industrial heartland, in farm states and across the South, after a half-century of economic, demographic and cultural shifts that have reshaped the electorate. Even in places like Michigan, where it has been decades since union membership lists readily predicted Democratic votes, many in the party pay so little attention to white working-class men that it suggests they have effectively given up on converting them."
