Jerry Brown's demographics

From Dan Walters, Non-white, less affluent voters gave Brown an edge Sacramento Bee 11/03/2010:

Brown captured nearly two-thirds of the Latino vote and an even larger share of black voters, according to Edison Research's interviews with voters after they cast ballots either in person or via mail. He also ran up strong majorities among among voters younger than 45 and among those with incomes under $100,000 a year.

Brown, a former two-term governor, often framed his duel with Whitman, a wealthy former corporate executive, as a struggle between classes, accusing her of wanting to help the rich while hurting the poor.
Let's see. Brown campaigned as an unapologetic Democrat, pro-labor, pro-immigrant-rights, pro-green jobs. And the Democratic base turned out and voted for him!

How did he come up with such a clever, sneaky idea? How? How? How?

"It is the logic of our times
No subject for immortal verse
That we who lived by honest dreams
Defend the bad against the worse."
