Mission Accomplished!

Obama has successfully disassociated the Democratic Party from the white middle class.
President Barack Obama’s support among blue-collar whites has fallen below 30 percent, according to two new polls.

The unprecedented drop comes as Obama announced several controversial moves to bolster his support among minority groups, including his recent immigration reform and decision to come out in favor of same-sex marriage.

That immigration reform includes what critics say amounts to a de-facto amnesty for at least 800,000 illegal immigrants, many of whom may compete against blue-collar whites for jobs.

The action and reaction underlines the Democratic Party’s increased dependence on minority groups, unmarried women, government workers and whites with post-graduate degrees.
This is all part of the plan.
For decades, Democrats have suffered continuous and increasingly severe losses among white voters. But preparations by Democratic operatives for the 2012 election make it clear for the first time that the party will explicitly abandon the white working class.

All pretense of trying to win a majority of the white working class has been effectively jettisoned in favor of cementing a center-left coalition made up, on the one hand, of voters who have gotten ahead on the basis of educational attainment — professors, artists, designers, editors, human resources managers, lawyers, librarians, social workers, teachers and therapists — and a second, substantial constituency of lower-income voters who are disproportionately African-American and Hispanic.
