House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi just made a big misstep ahead of the 2018 midterm elections — and political experts say it could cost her (and the Democratic Party) big time.
Pelosi is the queen of identity politics… but she won’t be able to talk her way out of this gaff.

The mistake came in the way Pelosi recently endorsed New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo over Hollywood starlet and former “Sex and the City” actress Cynthia Nixon — and it has critics bringing out the knives.
Why would voters care what a California congresswoman thinks about the New York City governor’s race? Under Pelosi, the Democratic Party “is in severe geographic retreat, and it has happened with alarming speed,” The New York Times recently wrote.
Democrats are totally out of touch with heartland voters — and are losing more and more elections to conservatives in those areas.
Coastal elites weighing in on elections thousands of miles away from them is a bad look — and moves like rushing to back Cuomo has even diehard Democratic voters voicing loud concerns over the party’s leadership.

How did Pelosi respond to these calls for her to step aside?
She blamed white men.
“It’s important that it not be five white guys at the table, no offense. I have no intention of walking away from that table,” Pelosi said, referring to Congress and the presidency.
If Pelosi had her way, only rich liberal elites would be allowed at the table — an idea that has been repeatedly rejected by American voters of every skin color.
