    It's a quote from a few decades ago that should be as well known as "Read my lips, no new taxes" or "I am not a crook," etc.

    It seemed pretty clear you were just tossing out the reference because it's part of the quote.

    Be that as it may, I am not hearing the same concern for the derogatory slander aimed at the left. I don't look down on non-voters -I want to reach them. I did this for a living for some time, I know what I'm talking about. But again, there doesn't seem to be anyone falling over themselves to defend the left the way they do the poor misunderstood right winger. Why is this? Aren't they working people that deserve a break just as much as the poor misunderstood Trump voter? That's the point I'm trying to make here. And I have met and know many of them - that is the area I live in.
    I don’t really care about trying to understand right wingers. They’re pretty straight forward and easy to figure out. To the point of being very predictable.

    I think it’s more important understanding why economically left people continue to support right wing populists. For instance, union supporters and blue collar Dems flocking to Reagan in 1980..

    Labor minded leftists tend to care less about identity politics because they feel the reforms and changes they support will ultimately benefit people of all backgrounds and make for an overall more egalitarian society.
