The Core of the Republican Party

"I would dearly love for the Democrats to spend millions of dollars trying to persuade NASCAR fans to vote for the Democrats. They tend to be disproportionately southern, disproportionately white and disproportionately male, which pretty well defines the core of the Republican Party."
-Republican pollster Whit Ayres

Am I missing something here? Is this not true? (Not to mention even remotely newsworthy?)

You should check out the campaign contribution list of NASCAR drivers and fans to political campaigns. They overwhelmingly support Republicans across the board.

Just as it would be madness for Democrats to sink big bucks into the NASCAR demographic, it would likewise be madness for Republicans to drop millions of dollars into persuading gangsta rap fan demographic to vote Republican.

It's the Big Middle that both parties spend the bulk of their resources trying to influence. Just watch Ned Lamont these next few months if you have any doubts.
