general election In Republican primaries voters are overwhelmingly white and are becoming more conservative; they tend to choose the more conservative candidate Understanding this minority candidates often run to the right flank It’s unsurprising then that Heritage Action for America an advocacy organization associated with the conservative Heritage Foundation scored Scott Love and West as more conservative than the average House Republican (Hurd who represents a purple district that is majority Latino necessarily tacks more to the center)Two related studies show that in South Carolina "Nikki Haley and Tim Scott are more popular than their white Republican colleague Lindsey Graham" and that "conservatives evangelicals and less-educated individuals respond more positively to Scott when he is described as a ‘Tea Party favorite’ " than as the "first African American Senator from South Carolina since Reconstruction"Consider Ben Carson’s 2016 presidential campaign Carson an inexperienced politician rode a strong evangelical message and critiques of media outlets – both of which play well with conservative audiences – to the top of the GOP presidential polls He held steady there for a few weeks until terrorist attacks and national security concerns (not his strong suit) changed the tenor of the race in Trump’s favor In other words it’s not that racial animus doesn’t exist it’s that the power of conservative identity can outweigh itThe path to the presidency for GOP candidates requires winning a majority of white voters in the general election not just the primaries But every Republican presidential nominee since the Voting Rights Act has handily won white voters except in 1968 1992 and 1996 when margins of victory were smaller because of somewhat competitive third-party candidates In the current hyper-partisan atmosphere if a black candidate can appeal to Republican voters he or she can capture the same coalition that white Republicans use to win electionsThe Democratic Party for its part is well aware of its poor performance among white voters and has begun focusing its attention on them specifically the white working class Post-election analysis shows that it was these voters shifting from the Democratic Party to Trump who were ultimately responsible for Hillary Clinton’s undoing Some progressives have expressed concern that the party’s attempts to win back white working-class voters will come at the expense of black voters despite the fact that black voters are the most reliable part of the Democratic base "With its obsessive focus on wooing voters who supported Donald Trump" writes "Brown Is the New White" author Steve Phillips "it is neglecting the cornerstone of its coalition"The Democrats’ intramural debate was evident in the recent race for the Democratic National Committee chairmanship when an ally of eventual winner Tom Perez said of Rep Keith Ellison – who as the first black congressman from Minnesota and the first Muslim elected to Congress holds more progressive positions than many others in the party – "Is he really the guy we need right now when we are trying to get all of those disaffected white working-class people to rally around our message of economic equality" This quote illustrates a desire to address oft-cited white economic anxiety by subordinating issues of race and religion Now Democrats must determine whether their next electoral victory lies in recapturing the white working-class voters who used to be part of their base or doubling down on the demographics-is-destiny strategy which prioritizes appeals to the growing segment of minority votersSo while a black liberal is fighting upstream in a political climate of racial and ideological polarization that same climate could work in favor of the black conservative candidate And though black Democratic candidates often increase black voter turnout – see 2008 and 2012 – the rash of restrictive state voting laws has suppressed turnout among black voters and those living in poverty Because a black Republican nominee doesn’t rely on black voters the electoral factors that hurt black Democratic candidates don’t have nearly the same effect In an irony befitting today’s bizarre political landscape a black Republican nominee may benefit electorally from discriminatory voting lawsThis leads to yet another trend that could create a perfect electoral storm: growing black dissatisfaction with the Democratic Party Even the election of a black Democrat to the presidency wasn’t enough to compel the federal government to meet demands to address systemic racial disparities in a meaningful way For all its loyalty to the party the black electorate has not realized the policy gains that should accompany its voting power Yet black voters continue to support the Democratic Party for lack of viable options in the voting booth This conundrum is called electoral capture a concept that Princeton professor Paul Frymer describes as a bloc’s overwhelming support for one political party as a result of the opposing party having no interest or making no effort to win the bloc’s votes As a result some black Americans have turned to other forms of political expression – black turnout was down seven percentage points from 2012 to 2016 – such as rallies and demonstrations the Black Lives Matter movement protest votes and principled exits from the electoral process Black Americans’ dissatisfaction hurt Democrats not Republicans on Election DayThis is where black men put their finger on the scale A black Republican nominee would peel away a small but significant portion of the black electorate mostly men Though black men largely hold liberal views more of them than black women buy into the conservative mantra of self-determination small government and economic sufficiency as a remedy to racial discrimination Also my research supported by similar findings found that black men are much more likely than black women to vote for a black presidential nominee regardless of party or policy views This suggests that a black Republican candidate can cut into the Democratic base to some extent in the absence of a black Democratic candidate If Trump managed to get 13 percent of black men to vote for him (Mitt Romney drew 11 percent in 2012 against Obama) a black Republican candidate is certain to exceed that by some noticeable margin And in a razor-thin election black men voting along racial lines could help tip the outcomeTaken together the current landscape provides fertile soil for the idea of a black Republican in the White House Of course when it comes to the presidency and electoral politics good conditions are hardly enough to win There are simply too many other factors at play from candidates’ likability to things they can’t control such as the state of the economyAnd race still matters: White Republican primary contenders could try to employ coded racial appeals to denigrate competitive black candidates (or to denigrate white candidates – recall the George W Bush team’s attacks on Sen John McCain during the 2000 South Carolina primary) Further being black and very conservative is insufficient (recall the Alan Keyes Herman Cain and Carson campaigns) And there’s the reality that the Republican bench for viable black candidates is basically empty except perhaps for Sen ScottStill if the notion of a black Republican presidency occurring before the next Democratic one seems doubtful it’s becoming less so as our politics becomes more divided and stress fractures emerge in historic coalitions Given the unpredictability and hyper-partisanship of the current political environment the political winds now blowing could indeed fill the sails of a black Republican presidential nomineeTheodore Johnson is a fellow at New America and an adjunct professor at Georgetown University’s School of Public PolicyThe Bureau of Land Management recommends including a 120-acre parcel in McKenzie County bordering the North Unit of the park in a lease sale scheduled for March 2018The federal agency has published an environmental assessment of leasing the federal minerals and is accepting public comments through Oct 30During an earlier "scoping period" conservationists raised concerns about the impact of more oil development outside the park’s boundaries diminishing visitors’ experienceThe BLM said in a news release its recommendation of including the parcel in the lease sale is consistent with the "administration’s goals of promoting America’s energy independence" and also follows approved resources management plansIn the environmental assessment the BLM said including the parcel in the lease sale doesn’t necessarily mean the minerals would be developed The BLM would do additional analysis if the agency received an application for permit to drillTheodore Roosevelt National Park Superintendent Wendy Ross said in a letter to the BLM she is concerned about oil development in that parcel affecting the park’s scenic beauty natural sound wildlife habitat and dark night skiesThe parcel proposed for inclusion in the lease sale is just north of the Theodore Roosevelt Wilderness and the Buckhorn TrailThe environmental assessment says impacts to the park could be minimized through best management practices such as limiting lighting and avoiding unnecessary flaring of natural gasThe assessment and more information are available at http://s.bitly/2w43idWComments can also
