No, I meant are her politics atypical. Meaning she's a champion of the working class like Bernie, but doesn't really identify with all the identity politics of the Left. (and that doesn't make her racist.)
Regardless, Celeste is not who I, or really anyone, has in mind when they talk about a middle-of-the-road voter or a swing voter. I feel she's a pretty solid Democratic voter, yeah?

Yes, solidly Democratic. Democratic Socialist even. But more in line with working class issues than gender and racial identity issues.

OK, well, yeah, a Democratic Socialist is probably atypical by default. But regardless, what Celeste is or isn't doesn't speak to the correctness (or incorrectness) of the "Julian theory" of what a swing voter looks like.

I donít trust polling on thisÖ.itís all in how you ask the question etc


People in America on average are fairly libertarian on economic issues: keep the government off of my back (taxes low) and let me keep my hard earned money.

And I guess my theory is that a white working class swing voter would be likely to be enthusiastic about Bernie's agenda, if they didn't have Fox News telling them Bernie is a Communist.

I think they'd be more enthusiastic about Bernie's agenda if it came out of Pete Buttigieg's mouth and every person who took part in a BLM protest HATED this hybrid Pete Buttigieg/Bernie person loudly on Twitter for reasons.
