Chryl Laird, "Steadfast Democrats: How Social Forces Shape Black Political Behavior"

"I'm Jen Taylor skinner. And this is the electorate on this episode. I have a conversation with Cheryl Laird. Shirl laird is a professor and political analyst who specializes in race and ethnic politics and political psychology and she joins me to discuss new book titled Steadfast Democrats. How SOCIAL FORCES SHAPE BLACK POLITICAL BEHAVIOR? She Co authored the book along with Ishmael White and if they analyze historical data to better understand why black Americans by far the most unified racial group in American politics and our conversations share laird and I draw parallels to the historical examples from the book and we correlate them to more recent political events. Like of course the Democratic primaries instance. This is a book that I personally will have to read more than once. It's that important. So without further ado here is my conversation with Cheryl. Layered sure leered welcome. Welcome to the PODCAST. Thank you for having me you know. I just have to say when I was reading this book as a black woman. It was really interesting because I was basically reading an analysis of my own political behavior. And I've never actually read it examined in this way. It was really strange for me to read this. And because I don't think that much about my own political motivations right like I think about policy but I don't think you know why Democrat. Why have I always been a democrat? Why do I never question right and that was really interesting for me yet? No I think That's literally what are trying to do with this book and we also are african-american and I'm trying to speak from experience of understanding politics in a particular way And often I think the literature thus far in some of the fields of political science sociology and other areas where they examine behavior and even in this case political behavior. We haven't really seen something that takes on this kind of question And particularly like wire wiser people doing this thing The way that they're doing it and we're able to really tackle it in a political science sort of way but a lot of it is based off of our own lived experience as African Americans and understanding that politics works differently. Yeah and so. The thing is the open. The Book Win Alabama Senate Race Between Doug Jones Roy Moore. We all remember that race for some really terrible reasons because of the allegations around. Roy Moore but what? I think what keeps happening elections like this. Is that people try to analyze and predict a black voter behavior. Right they have all. These assumptions aren't right. And then what happens? Is that black voters in surprising them like they did in this election. I think ninety eight percent of black women voted for Doug Jones then it was following that when Tom Perez made this statement online that Blackman backbone of the Party and I think that was the first time that someone at that level of leadership the head of the DNC made a declaration like that and acknowledged that publicly. I think that that's that's right. It's like it is. It is clear that the partisan norm is very strong. The loyalty to the Party is incredibly significant. And in this defining to the Party itself and its success in numerous elections and I think the Alabama election would just put that into high relief. A you're just able to really see that at work and black women being like the people at the front lines of it not only in the voter box but also on the ground like they were the ones shepherding. The grassroot efforts on the ground they were the ones behind a lot of the the poll souls to the polls or gathering people up to get them to go vote informing people about what was going on And so they are. They're they're doing that work for the Party and often just getting knowledge for it. So what actually happened in that race? Why wasn't it as predictive as people? Thought? Alabama is typically. A red state was at the mobilization on the ground that happen in the context of the election right so we have two individuals Roy Moore and Doug Jones and Roy Moore has especially this incident that comes up about Some sexual impropriety. Right like this situation of pedophilia as part of the conversation. But I also think part of the reason why people didn't see it coming is that the speaks a lot to the data that gets collected that goes into the predictive models of elections. Which is the sample sizes often in those data are very small when it comes to the African American sample And so if you do not have very good. Data data that is large in terms of the size of the black sample. That's in it. Additionally that is broad in that it's not just focused in any one location but is spread across sets of black communities the predictive nature than of what you're going to get from that data is not going to be right. Like a selection bias can create a problem with that Additionally I think people also don't know of some of the resources that African Americans are often dealing with in this case if we look at in political science the way that African Americans participate in politics all of the indicators that we typically use things like education level income on all typically are things that would say what is likely for someone to participate. African Americans have to make up for all of that because they're very resource deprived especially in a place like Alabama. And so what you then have to rely. On our black institutions black churches black colleges like organizations became the frontline for trying to mobilize people and again most types of tapping of that information through polling or through other forms of assessment. If you don't know about that you wouldn't know where to go. Look for it and so people did it. They did it not go look there. They didn't know that people would be energized. In this election. With these circumstances that play to get themselves out to vote and at the partisan role of that vote would matter so much right. Did you think that's true? Nationally that black people are underrepresented in polling. Generally I think they are. I think that's how you get often. Polls for instance. I remember not too long ago. The president had cited to a poll where he said he thought he had a whole bunch of black people who are supportive of Ham radio or something like thirty percent of black people saying they were okay with Donald Trump. The mmediately my thought was I need to see the data because I want to know where the poll was taken. Is this a random? Sample poll is a poll that is targeted to black communities. Are you targeting? This poll to black people at a certain location like what's his taken at a convention of some sort like all of that would matter because it's going to skew the data and if you're not attentive to this in the sampling that you're doing and waiting the sampling and the size of it so often times really. It has to do with the size of the sample often in a poll of maybe a thousand or thirteen hundred people in terms of African Americans that are in that sample. You'll be lucky if you see a hundred people in it well enough when you're talking about about black political ideology and I think another thing that's misunderstood about. The black voting block is just how conservative they are like socially conservative in a lot of ways and I think it's because there's this confusion around. We are generally in allegiance to a non Conservative Party. No I think that's right. I think because we think of ideology and political science typically the conservative Liberal ideology spectrum that we have is used heavily to predict partisanship and in most literature which is often used basically assessing white Americans. What we find is that people's ideology very predictive of their partisanship especially in a polarized environment for African Americans. It's different right and I think part of that has to do with how ideology works for African Americans. Black people are very politically diverse in their views. Say That again why he very click over to the partisan behavior needs to be thought about much more from a strategic advantage at the group is trying to do to be able to minority group in majority system and having a voice but people have varying opinions and a lot of people are very conservative. Especially on things like social conservatism fiscal conservatives on religiosity often as a driving force and we know from data especially from Pew Research Center. They find the African Americans as a racial group are some of the most strongest actors when it comes to their role engagement of religious institutions and those religious institutions are also African American. Right like this is like Martin Luther King talking about the most segregated day of the week is Sunday right. Like that is where they are. And it still is true. So conservatism manifests differently. For Blacks and ideologically. It also is very shaped by race. Where the goals of what people are leaning into in terms of their ideology could have a lot more to do with what they believe is important for trying to improve the status of the group even if they are varying in how they believe one would try to approach that but at the end of the day the partisanship though is done. In a manner that is trying to elevate the voice of the black community And political power in a space where we are a majority based system the one of the things. That's really interesting about that is that it's almost subconscious right. We don't necessarily like myself. I don't think necessarily my role in this larger picture of what we're trying to do collectively but we just we just do it. We just do it. I mean it's interesting because when we presented on this before we like to use this episode of black ish again. I think it's like elephants in the room. Or something to that effect about their son Junior Andrea. Both junior decided that he wants to join the young. Black Republicans Club at school. Or something and Andre is stunned and he's trying to explain it as family members and they all can't understand see China explaining to bow Chinese to his mother And they're both like what do you mean? He wants to join a republic. He wants to be like he wants to be a the Republicans like the League. Keep he wants to go to Banana Republic and buy clothes like they can't even process it because you're right it is become such a partly to be black is to Democrats and people who seem to be different from that are seen as strange right But I think it speaks so heavily to how long this norm of collective group race behavior has been informing black political behavior over

"He eked out a narrow victory in 2016 and then on friday a former campaign staffer told buzzfeed the he repeatedly propositioned her uh and touch iron appropriately well she was on his staff leading her to resign from the campaign atlanta the thing that struck me most about this was the reaction which was immediate and actually contained within the story that broke this news that the chairman of the democratic congressional campaign committee been rightly han called for key went to resign in that story now q and did not take his advice which was also law that roy more of the democrat run already from pull a pelosi and hoyer in all sorts of other people but that's a big shift in just the last few weeks that we've seen from kind of this urging of deliberation on um member you know people who've come poor whether it's frank in or john conyers or others with an allegation than actually i it's it would seem to me that the conyers the ark of the conyers story with pelosi coming in for so much criticism for calling him an icon on meet the press to him ultimately resigning this week has played an important part in that that rapid evolution of how how q one was dealt with yet and i also think that watching republicans wrestle with this rowing more thing in republicans getting hit with the blake fair untold news has made democrats realized that there is a political opportunity not just well there's a political opportunity in a moral opportunity and so they've they've come to realize that at pouncing on each and every one of these new allegations in pushing out their members is put some in a really strong position moving forward and so we saw democrats in succession starting with kirstin jila brand.

"To try to push more out of this race all of them propose my mitch mcconnell and essentially said we don't think any of these are good options and so we're not going to push the president to come out publicly and say more should get out of this race of the white house line from the beginning on this was that alabama voters should decide and that was a political calculation not necessarily a matter of principle for them they just didn't see away practical way to push more out of the race up but mcconnell was saying he that he thought more should get out of the race and that he would move to you know there was speculation he would move to expel roy more if he was elected if he didn't get out and he was elected mcconnell is now taking the white house line in saying this is the matter for alabama voters to decide essentially conceding that more is likely to win and i think he is unlikely to expel more if he is elected to the senate at the same time the i mean this essentially explains i think a lot of wide mcgrath's have moved aggressively to push out frank in out of the senate and draw a clear line for what behavior is acceptable for their members and it puts them in a powerful position to squeeze mcconnell and make the republicans look terrible on this issue and paul ryan could push blake fair untold out of the house he hasn't done that yet but it would be very hard for mitch mcconnell to expel roy more from the senate without a cooperation from the majority of his conference or to continue to dig its heels on on this he he's in a really tough position on i will say i i think i i think there's more of a chance from maybe you do the this never comes to pass and more ends up not becoming mccall's problem because he loses i think well small chance but i you and mitch mcconnell will both be using to that of that well so i just think that lie.

"Um point about how to how to give trump advice is interesting i feel like that we've also seen some kind of notable examples in the past few weeks of as we've seen all year of um how trump advisers either in the white house around also try and use the press to kind of float things forward to him and sometimes it works sometimes it doesn't but it it that that is a tactic that that is also in deep use yeah we saw that we've seen that a bunch of times with immigration decisions the daca decision i you know we saw that with the transgender ban my understanding is that a bunch of lawyers were sort of saying to him you know will at steady this some more he didn't like being told that uh you know mattis was against the two and trump went ahead and just did the opposite and declared that there was going to be a transgender ban i mean we've seen this with policy decisions again and again and eliane as right i think it makes it really hard to for anyone in the white house to know how to present information to him um and it also i think just makes it really hard for the white house to make decisions or move forward or have policy discussions yes so again let's let's focus in on alabama i mean so that this is coming up on on december twelve that's the the next tuesday um the me the other aspect of this eliane as there's there's now a stronger sense than ever before the more is is going to win i think is kind of the other aspect larry i sell many layers to this development yes growing more is gonna win and mitch mcconnell's evolution on this also i think forced by the president is fascinating this is a case in which i think the white house made a better political calculation than mitch mcconnell which may be a first but the white house saw the options.

"The news cycle and everything that's happening but was actually only two weeks ago or two days ago excuse me and the and the uh special election is uh this coming tuesday so like roughly a week before the special election he did this and i think it surprised a bunch of people in the white house but i think it's just further evidence you know republicans keep trying to distance themselves from trump or in inner try to take a moral ground but at this point like trump really is uh the owner of the republican party uh at least in my view the rnc is backing him uh you know he completely ignored the advice of uh majority leader mitch mcconnell in doing this you know mcconnell does not want more in the senate and trump sort of went ahead and did this and i think that he feels like he wants more in there he's totally over willing to look these accusations that uh more as a child predator he's put the republicans in a really tricky spot on this in 2018 but you know he's going to go ahead and do it anyway a eliana what what's your sense of kind of what what happened leading up to this and and just i don't know i mean does it say anything brought her about about trump in the white house that we didn't already know i'm i've been kind of wrestling with that question a little bit well and i'm in the process of writing a piece about this and one thing that i've come across is essentially that white house aides had no indication that the president was going to endorse luther strange when he did so in the primaries and they had no indication that he was going to come back around in endorse more when he did that and i re i do think that speaks to the fact that uh.

"Kenneth agree that maybe this is not a story line for us to linger on too much but is there anything in virginia about the sort of um roster of democrats that are out there you know is harry mentioned all different kinds of democrats won i know a lot of democrats are sort of worried about the the bench in about a lot of the party leaders being kind of on the older side be seen as part of the previous guard is there anything in virginia or just in general that's like oh maybe they're starting starting to build out their bench and some sort of well they held us away obama slipped the house of delegates which is promising for the democrats right and there's a shot that it that it could end up tied they're still some canvassing in potential recounts the provisional about just want to correct myself marshall coleman was the attorney general in virginia i i apologize to the virginia listeners on that one but yeah i i i would say that they nearly flip the house of delegates and yet so does a win like this in virginia and then maybe you know so we'll see what happens in alabama just whatever happens between now in 2018 in them beyond willett kind of paper over the differences in a dangerous way or is winning just kind of like the cure all for everything and you want wanna win if democrats have a good midterm than democratic infighting will be an underrated storyline by the mainstream media in if they have a bad midterm it'll be properly rated overrated i don't know but yeah i mean look again the conditions of running in a midterm are very different and the conditions of running into presidential election people conflate them too much i think it's an over aided story line visavis 2018 i would just generally say that parties fight all of the time a republican party fights the democratic party fights dirt you know when you're in a twoparty system that's going to be a wide difference in ideology within a party and sometimes it's left right sometimes it's establishment anti establishment sometimes it's focus on economic crisis social issues so yeah here's what i'll say i think that the institutional democrats are.

"Out of sort of i think on pause percolation from the more liberal side angsting at the institutional democrats remember junior was just an anti trump vote there were people in obviously route northern was an establishment figure at least in virginia politics and i think that that perhaps was the real dividing line the primary we've spoken about this before between perry yellow and north him but you know if you just look at nor them and then you look at the individual candidates were running for the delicate races there you so all types of different democrats them one you saw democractic there was a democratic socialist who won uh so i i don't read very much into what that says necessarily about infighting within the democratic party but i think the result in the fact that were not really talking about infighting within the democratic party lease in the mainstream media at this point shows that winning tends to cure a lot of different issues and it is also worth noting that may be the notion of okayed this party is fighting and then that actually matters get often get conflated so so it's different as it that there are different things to point out and say the democrat party has you know has all this messy infighting happening but maybe doesn't actually matter i mean other examples harry historically of like messy parties that are still successful electorally abby niwa room what what's the definition of a messy party i mean a two thousand eight democratic primary was a very messy primary and there were these point quote unquote 'pumas that were going to vote for john mccain barack obama won the general election easel gop and 26 daily gop in 2016 i think that the only real way that it can hurt a party is safe you get a thirdparty candidacy going you know if you look for instance the 1994 virginia senate race a marshall coleman who i believe was he lieutenant governor in that state ran a thirdparty bid and at that enable chuck robb the democratic incumbent senator defeat oliver north by a small margin in part because there was such infighting within the republican party and we can start to wrap up because i think we are.

"I said in this program before and will repeat that i think democratic disarray is an overrated story line for two thousand eighteen and it's more of a 2020 story line that is important for 2020 and that people will begin applying to early the m you know i think the fact that like the morning joe pundits thought the donna brazile flicked would be a gamechanger in virginia shows that they're not very good at understanding you know they have not made progress toward that way at escaping the media bubble but if you're saying that third the results i mean i agree with you i think that those takes were a little out there but if you're saying that the virginia race doesn't give us an indication that the party is you know unified in some way but then on the flip side you're also saying that the disunity in the party they were still ever able to overcome that are wasn't that will there is untested primaries thing i've is an adequate identified begin with something out of that line right it's not a factor in a general election of this nature i'm saying that democrats ceret is probably going manifests itself in an ugly way in the 2020 now presidential primary and before then it again you are running as the opposition now you just have to run against something this whole thing about like oh you need a message i mean now you don't really you have to i mean we disagree on this panel about that a little bit but you have to run against president trump and the unpopular things that president trump does it yeah i mean the democrats in virginia were in disarray in the sense that there is a hotly contested primary temporal wasn't a burning brow but he was certainly running a different his trainer on a different kind of campaign the north them you know he he supported north them pretty pretty strongly during the general so i think it's if we want to use virginia as neat said as an example for anything i think you should use the primary is an example for what might happen in winter primary start for presidential elections they like 2018 that's where you should look for it 'cause like that stuff doesn't ironed out like what is tom perez doing i don't know they're still.
