Similarly, the 2016 Republican presidential field is also brimming with greater ethnic and generational diversity — in stark contrast with the Democrats. Obviously, there’s nothing wrong with older, white men, but the Left frequently touts its appeal to a “rainbow coalition” of ethnic and racial minorities.
Republicans also have greater occupational diversity, including greater experience in the private sector, from high-profile careers in surgery (Paul, Carson), tech (Fiorina) and real estate (Trump). Yes Democrat Chaffee was a farrier — caring for horses’ hooves sounds exotic, though the market seems limited. All of the other Democrats have spent their lives in government, spending rather than creating tax revenues. It’s clear that for this 2016 presidential cycle voters will be offered a stark contrast: a party that brings dynamism and vibrancy or a party from a greying generation with a worldview trapped inside the Northeast corridor.
