Bad news for Democrats?

NY Times:

Empathy May Be Overrated in an Election, and in a Leader

It’s not clear that the trait matters much to voters, and some social scientists argue that empathy is biased and parochial.
Many of the policies of Democrats have been based on misplaced empathy that keeps the less successful locked into dependency on government.   These people are missing out on the satisfaction that comes from doing really productive work.  Some of their policies, like the minimum wage increases, are counterproductive for those entering the workforce limiting the opportunities especially for minority youth who miss out on the work experience that can be used to build a resume.
