Adam Serwer (Mother Jones) and Robert A. George (New York Post, Ragged Thots)

On Adamize, Robert explains the hasty fall of Mitt Romney (“who?”), while Adam argues that there’s nothing unusual about political parties giving their constituencies “gifts.” Robert uses Asian-American voters to debunk the “demographic” theory of Obama’s victory. Robert observes that the 2016 Republican field may actually be more diverse than the Democratic one, while Adam argues that Marco Rubio can’t save the GOP from its problems with Latino voters. Adam warns Democrats against overconfidence about the power of changing demographics. Plus: Robert revels in the rise of the black nerd in American pop culture.
