(Along similar lines, if you want to argue that "electability" arguments should favor candidates who are strong among noncollege whites *and* black voters, that tends to *improve* Biden's electability case, since those are his two real strengths in the primary.)

I dunno but IMO, non-college whites flipping to Trump in the Midwest was a bigger cause of why he won the Electoral College than black turnout, especially given that black turnout was reasonably high for Clinton relative to non-Obama candidates.

New research: If you want to help low-income communities, don't help people move away to richer places, or pay big firms to move in. Help strengthen local economic activity & support many small bets on business growth.

I would add to the article's proposed policy solutions: support walkable communities and their associated local-serving businesses. This creates highly-efficient, low-cost communities with maximum access to the opportunities generated by nearby humans.

Trump's city bashing -- of Baltimore, Chicago and , lately, LA and San Francisco -- is central to his 2020 message to his base, "You wouldn't want to live here." He's building on the classic rural-urban divide in US politics.

Here’s the problem with our current approach. The “affordable housing” we’re building isn’t…well…really affordable for anybody. That’s why I’ve proposed we triple the target for new apartments for homeless families. We need more low-income housing.

The Late Modernist connection to the Trump crackdown on homelessness in L.A. has been found, and it's surprisingly revealing.
