Blue Collar Democrats and Obama

The current meme in the race or the current rap on Obama is `Obama can't win the blue collar white democrats'. Also known as the Reagan Democrats.

This is the current meme as pushed by the Clinton campaign. The Main Stream Media (MSM) has picked up this theme.

The meme is wrong.

The correct phrasing is that he can't pick up a majority of these democrats WITH HILLARY IN THE RACE. The social experiment going on with the primary is who can pick up more democratic votes between Clinton and Obama.

Primaries don't telling us how democratic candidates stack up against Republicans, because that is not the question being asked of voters.
