To blacks he was one of their own and that was really all that mattered. They were in the bag from the start, 95% plus. To Hispanics, he bought their vote with his illegal, dictatorial, but hugely popular, to them at least, executive order for amnesty to young illegals. Result? 70% plus from a community that is Catholic, church-going, hard working, anti-abortion and generally conservative.
To women he trotted out the classic Democrat ploy, the fear of losing control over their bodies and even added a new wrinkle, the “right” to free contraceptives even if you’re a law student on the cusp of making $150,000 a year to start. Result, a margin of some 9 points, especially in the suburbs.
Yes, pandering to the self-absorbed pays.
