Politico: The Rise of the Biden Republicans

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.


Call them the True Cons.

Call them the Free Marketeers.

Call them Republican establishment voters.

Call them what they really are which is affluent, college-educated fiscal conservatives who are professionals who live in wealthy metropolitan suburbs and who have modernist and cosmopolitan values. Their upper middle class politics is essentially tax cuts and virtue signaling.

Politico:

“Call them the Biden Republicans.

Like the Reagan Democrats, they’re heavily white and live in suburbs. But where the Reagan Dems are blue-collar and culturally conservative, Greenberg sees the Biden Republicans as more affluent, highly educated and supportive of diversity. Historically, they identified with the Republican Party as their political home. But the leaders who were supposed to fight for them seem to care more about white grievance and keeping out immigrants; seem to care more about social issues and “owning the libs” than about childcare payments and college tuition. They don’t consider themselves Democrats — at least not yet — but they are voting for them, delivering them majorities in the House and Senate, and making Joe Biden just the fourth candidate in the last century to defeat an incumbent president. …”

As neoliberal establishment voters consolidate around Joe Biden, the Democrats are held together less by economics than virtue signaling. Turn on your television and it is a chorus of PMCs talking about themselves and how much better than those other people who are a bunch of bigots. The “center-right” voters used to virtue signal about racism while demanding tax cuts. The “center-left” voters virtue signal about racism while demanding immediate action on climate change.
