Happy days ahead for Dems
Here's the first of what should be many commentaries on Judis and Teixeira's new book, The Emerging Democratic Majority:
I previously discussed the book's preview article in the New Republic, but expect it to cause a major splash as the book finally makes into print.
MyDD has some compelling additional thoughts:
[I]t's arguable that parts of the Upper Midwest has been trending toward the Republican Party over the last decade or so-- IA, WI, MN are not near as Democratic strongholds as they once were. Although, without the Green Party's Nadar, WI & MN would probably have not been as contentious in 2000. The other trend is that the Democratic Party is emerging in the Sun Belt states-- AZ, NM, and NV. This is in large part due to the coalition that Judis and Teixiera present.Posted August 22, 2002 07:53 AM | Comments (4)
