    Default Demographics don't argue for courting the BOC vote (Buick, Oldsmobile, and Cadillac)

    President Obama's margins with various demographic groups:


    • Blacksa: 93%
    • Latinosa: 71%
    • Asiansa: 73%
    • Young (18-29)a: 60%
    • Womenb: 55%
    • Middle Class and less affluentc: 54%



    Maybe I'm missing something, but given demographic trends in this country, isn't inclusion the better path Forward?

    I've defined "Middle Class and less affluent" as households with family incomes of $100k or less (80% of the population). This meets one of the definitions found on Wikipedia (Bibliography citation 1), but there are others that extend "Middle Class" higher than $100k.
