White Working Class? Under the Bus for Obama Campaign!

Can a narrowcast win?

All pretence 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.  --NYTimes quoted by AOSHQ

Very interesting strategy.  PEU members, lawyers, and artistes?
