The Democrat Identity Politics Wall Finally Breaks – Opinion

According to a poll by ABC News/Ipsos on Sunday, President Biden is deeply dissatisfied with American citizens on many key issues going into 2022’s midterms. This includes the Russian/Ukraine conflict and the promise of a Supreme Court nominee that will be based on race or gender.

For those who missed it, here’s a 30-second rundown from “This Week” host George Stephanopoulos of where most Americans stand on those issues:

The most interesting thing about that poll wasn’t that so many had soured on Biden’s handling of the economy and foreign entanglements, but on where most people stood on his pledge to nominate a black woman to the Supreme Court:

This is a nightmare territory for Democrats. Not only in relation to the Supreme Court confirmation battle, but also for future elections.

They’ve weaponized identity politics to the extreme going back to the 1970s, and over the last couple of decades or so they’ve fine-tuned the tactic with slogans like “war on women” and “Jim Crow 2.0” to manipulate certain segments of the population into believing the real GOP agenda is to take women back to the dark ages and minority communities back to the days of slavery and being treated like second class citizens in the United States.

While neither claim is based in fact, Democrats have been able, with the support of their friends in mainstream media, to successfully run against them to various degrees for decades. They also brought along their promises to show their true commitment to human rights. As a means of making right past mistakes in our society, they were nominated for government posts.

Democrats will see something particularly alarming in that poll: The breakdown of those who thought Biden should look at all qualified candidates and not just narrow down his selections.

Although the poll’s sample size was not large enough to break out results for Black people, only a little more than 1 in 4 nonwhite Americans (28%) wish for Biden to consider only Black women for the vacancy. Democrats are more supportive of Biden’s vow (46%) than Americans as a whole, but still a majority of Democrats (54%) also prefer that Biden consider all possible nominees.

Though those numbers will be a shock to those on the left who think minority voters only think one way, they aren’t a shock at all to those who have monitored voting trends for the last 10 years or so and who have seen the subtle but noticeable shifts of key voting blocs away from Democrats and to Republicans based on an array of factors, including safety and security concerns, job concerns and worries that the left is going too “woke” and far away from the mainstream.

Democrats didn’t build their identity politics wall in a day, and it’s not going to come down in a day. It is good news not only for America but also for the Republican Party. Because issues should not be dealt with solely on merit. QualificationsAll nominees should be taken into consideration, regardless of their race or gender.

The Biden administration is on a collision course to finding out the hard way that most people view what they’re doing as both shameless pandering and insultingly offensive to boot (not to mention legally questionable, as George Washington Law Professor Jonathan Turley recently observed). Americans want to be judged on their character and the contributions they make to society.
