"Democrats Try Wooing Ones Who Got Away: White Men."

Well, good luck with "wooing" (straight, cis) white men who don't already agree that traditional Democratic policies also benefit them. I am hard-pressed to imagine how that's going to work without alienating Democratic voters who aren't (straight, cis) white men.

And, y'know, when your primary outreach to Democratic voters who aren't (straight, cis) white men is already "We're not Republicans!", there ain't a lot of room for alienation before people start staying home on Election Day. Or "throwing their votes away" on third parties.
