Back to Politics
The G.O.P. attempts to cash in on this image by making Nancy Pelosi the poster girl for it. The history of political bosses and machines in these places, while no longer a factor, also lingers in their image of the Democratic Party. While these voters, basically from a White Protestant culture, are not specifically racist nor bigoted, they are well aware that the Democratic Party has many Black, Latino, Jewish and at least in big cities, Roman Catholic adherents. They don’t openly criticize the Democrats for this but it is often buried in the back of their thinking somewhere. They see the Democrat “cohort” as different from theirs. They can sense that what might be good for Los Angeles or New York City might not be good for Des Moines, and vote accordingly.
