Party perception is vital to winning elections. If the party is perceived to be too far out on the extreme, it will lose. With every action, there is an equal reaction. Democrats for years have danced the dance at their national conventions allowing every minority and every element to have their time to shine on the political stage. They sing “Kumbaya,” hold hands, and pretend everything is right with the world and everyone is equally heard. They even tell you that they have the biggest tent and all are welcome. Republicans not wanting to be outdone manage to find the few black and Hispanic Republicans and put them on display at their convention.
