    I suppose so. It is a problem on the left, but given the gender split for a guy like Trump (like 60% of women do not like him), it is not a bad card to play.

That is what it is...a card to play...a trick. It's superficial and pandering to a physical trait over qualifications then though.

    I still would not say identity politics are unique to Democrats. It is human nature. Evangelicals tend to always vote Republican for instance. The GOPs primary voting block are white men. By no means all, but it is what they draw heaviest from.

Unique no...but played to heck yes. I don't see adds like - Hey whitely! Vote for "Whitey Magilihee" because he is WHITE! - If you look at historical know who changes their votes the most percentagewise? White men. Statistically their vote is more open to being changed and claimed, and the Dems miss this over and over (Obama Seemed to get it when he was running though).

    It would be nice to see reach out to as many as possible. It is hard to have the umbrella that large though. It is very much a focus on who got you there situation. Always has been. And I imagine react out has minimal impact, except at the margins.

I just want to see their policies. I don't care what they look like or as i said who they want to sleep with. What is their substance not what is their color trait. Playing to that will not get my vote at least...then again maybe they don't want my vote.

I agree with policies. Just saying that the "identity" card in general is the same as any other clarion call.

Conservative candidates typically pander to the religious right. So they will shoot for that identity over LGBT rights for instance. So, automatically you are left with like a choice in one way. Religious conservatives would argue being forced out by the reverse.

Just saying that tribal mentalities are human nature. If one side is seeming to attack you, be it left or right, than you will join the other side.

It is sadly what politics have broken down into in the US.

It should be based on policies first, but it has not for quite a while.
