In order to win the Democratic Party’s nomination for president, you will have to do well with African Americans. They area huge Democratic Party voting bloc. It’s the very reason that former Vice President Joe Biden believes he still has a shot at the nomination and thinks he’ll win in South Carolina.
All politicians pander, Republican or Democrat, it doesn’t matter. They’ll tell you what you want to hear in order to get your vote. When they get in office , those promises change a little bit when they actually have to start governing and learn that not everything they said can be accomplished. But while out on the campaign trail, they’ll say and do absolutely anything.
For instance, former South Bend, Indiana Mayor Pete Buttigieg continues to pander on the campaign trail and on social media to African Americans. He’s been polling terribly with that segment of the population. So, what do you do? You tell them what they want to hear in order to win votes!
Everyone in the world knows what Buttigieg is doing but you’d think his communications team would be a little bit better at delivering their message so that it’s not so blatantly obvious!
