What do you call a candidate who wins 90 percent of the African-American vote, between 30 percent and 50 percent of the Hispanic vote and 40 percent of the white vote in a tight Democratic primary race?
A general election loser.
In a general election, candidates must appeal to the broadest base of support in order to win.
— President James Madison, 1787
