If you're accusing people of demagoguery, the left does it just the same. They're just more successful at doing it. And now that the feel the have minorities in their pocket they're moving to the War on Women rhetoric.
I know it is only anecdotal but I spent alot of time with my dad's family and they were all hard core R's that watched Fox News 24/7. They are old white people and the reason why they hated Obama and would never vote for him was because he was black. They would never come out and say it but from their inferences it was obvious.
They also believed he was a socialist and a Muslim...
Again I don't want to generalize because I know all Republicans\conservatives are not like that but there is a large group that is.
