To yield the cultural struggle – abortion, homosexuality, transgender rights, multiculturalism, racism, patriotism, and so on – to the Republican Party and MAGA movement in favor of an election strategy that singularly focuses on “economic” issues will likely backfire. In contrast, a far better strategy is to organically blend the two together. The conservative Andrew Breitbart’s assertion that “politics is downstream from culture,” (meaning that to win elections, it is necessary to first shape cultural perceptions of voters) may be overdrawn some, but not by much.
