    .... is a potential strategy we should be concerned about (that's "concerned," not "connnn-cerrrrrned"), anticipating, and coming up with strategies to counter.

    They could try ethnic triangulation: playing ethnic groups off against each other e.g. A + B against C.

    They could try a more overt economic class appeal and attempt to lure one group or another that way.

    They are already attempting a religious right strategy with the right wing of the Catholic church, and that in turn could be tweaked into an ethnic appeal as well.

    For example:

    Attempt to turn Asians into "honorary whites" who identify with the plutocracy, and then use Latinos as "The Base" via the Catholic right (as they have with working-class whites via the Evangelical right).  

    Those types of scenarios need to be taken seriously and dealt with proactively.

    This election was the turning point toward a future with a future.
