James Carville Says "80% of Democrats Are Politically Clueless"

"Eighty percent of the people who call themselves Democrats don’t have a clue as to political reality.

"What amazes me is that you could take a group of people who are hard workers and convince them that they should support social programs that were the exact opposite of their own personal convictions. Put a little fear here and there and you can get people to vote any way you want.


"The voter is basically dumb and lazy. The reason I became a Democratic operative instead of a Republican was because there were more Democrats that didn’t have a clue than there were Republicans.

"Truth is relative. Truth is what you can make the voter believe is the truth. If you’re smart enough, truth is what you make the voter think it is. That’s why I’m a Democrat. I can make the Democratic voters think whatever I want them to.”
~ James Carville, political consultant, former Bill Clinton campaign manager

Clueless and flying on what sounds good because they are too lazy to actually study.

PH, that's a good point, and demonstrably true. Thanks.

Dear all,

Apparently the quote was falsely posted by an unknown user to a quotations website called thinkexist.com. We have contacted the website and asked them to take the quote down. James Carville never said these words, and this quote in no way belongs to James Carville. Feel free to distribute my response so that we can spread the truth about this supposed quotation.

Best,
