Not when you read in the New York Times that Marco Rubio is the one of they’re most afraid. Interesting…
They use words like “historic” and “charismatic,” phrases like “great potential” and “million-dollar smile.” They notice audience members moved to tears by an American-dream-come-true success story. When they look at the cold, hard political math, they get uneasy.
An incipient sense of anxiety is tugging at some Democrats — a feeling tersely captured in four words from a blog post written recently by a seasoned party strategist in Florida: “Marco Rubio scares me.”
Now, let’s set aside the cynicism that they think parading out rappers because Marco Rubio is a fan of the music will make Hillary look like she’s down.
This gets to the core of what we preach at LwC…pop culture is where the game is won. Democrats have won for so long because of how they manipulate voters through TV, music, art and effective cultural influence. The fact that they seem cool is more important than the fact that they are shameless liars. A Republican who can tap into pop culture and younger voters, especially when the best the Democrats have is old and out of touch, will not only win an election, they can start shaping popular opinion.
Rubio can be that guy, and no number of rappers endorsing Hill-Dawg will stop that.
