Katy Tur is a genius. She just figured out how to help Dems win elections!
“Why would the Democratic Party not just recruit people from California to move to Michigan and to Wisconsin?”
Turns out Katy and her braindead friends ask themselves this AAAALL THE TIME.
MSNBC’s Katy Tur wondered Monday why Democrats do not simply get people to move from California to rust belt states like Michigan and Wisconsin to solve their electoral woes.
Hillary Clinton won the popular vote in 2016 against Donald Trump, but Trump of course won the presidency by a convincing margin in the Electoral College. Clinton won California alone by roughly 4.3 million votes, while Trump won the other 49 states by roughly 1.5 million.
Key to Trump’s victory was narrowly winning Michigan, Wisconsin, and Pennsylvania, all states that Barack Obama won twice.
While discussing the party’s demographic problems, Tur pondered why Democrats do not ask people to simply move to those midwestern states from the liberal bastion of California.
“Why would the Democratic Party not just recruit people from California to move to Michigan and to Wisconsin?” Tur asked, adding it seemed like a “simplistic answer.”
Tur said her friends had “brought this up repeatedly whenever we’ve talked about what’s going on with the Democrats.”
“Democrats have more voters, but they’re in the wrong places,” New York Times reporter Nicholas Confessore said.
According to the other chick, that won’t work because Michigan and Wisconsin are RAAAAAACIST.
These people need help.
Do they really not see how dumb that is?
Yes, why don’t Democrats just totally control the lives of Americans?

Migration used as a tool to facilitate a shift in demographics? Brilliant!
Now, why is California so blue again?

Strategically place our resources so we can win elections? This sounds like a great idea….

Saying that minorities can’t vote because it’s just tooooo darned hard for them is actually SO INCREDIBLY RACIST. What are you saying? Minorities are too stupid to figure out how to follow rules and get an ID? Really?
This is all INSANE.
