    •  To be sure, a less white electorate (2+ / 0-)

      should help us even in the midterms. I think it was DCCyclone who said that the electorate will always be getting less white, even in the midterms. It won't be as helpful as it will be in a presidential cycle, and it's not clear when we might reach a tipping point where we are favored simply because the electorate is so nonwhite, but I'm not sure there's any reason to expect it to get worse for us.
