I love that quote so much, I want to take it out behind the middle school and...you know.

Maybe, but they are not Berlusconi who uses his playboy tricks to get female state heads on his side and such. Consider the messenger.

FiveThirtyEight.com: Electoral Projections Done Right: Obama Outperforms Kerry Among Virtually All Demographics

How Obama performed with various demographics, vs Kerry in '04:



The only groups Kerry did better with are those 65 and over, those in the "other religion" category, and gays and lesbians. The latter I find very puzzling.

Here's a interesting NYT graphic. Counties in blue became more Democratic in 2008 vs. 2004. An incredible shift left in many states.

To which my grandpa said, "We don't care what our church says. We vote for the person we feel is best suited to run the country. Just because your husband and kids are all rich doesn't mean the rest of the country is the same way. Millions of people are out of work, can't feed their families, are losing their homes, and have no health care. I've been around almost 86 years, and I know the Republicans won't do a thing to help the middle class and poor." My grandpa rocks.


great story U2ITB

Those were both very interesting, thanks for posting!

Here's an article on Larry King's interview with Bill Maher. I don't know if it has already been posted or not.

There's a significant minority of white gay men who are fiscally and even to some degree socially conservative...perhaps compared to '04, that bloc perceived fewer potential adverse consequences for gay rights in voting Republican this time around. That's just speculation, but I'd think it'd have to be something like that to explain that significant a shift in an election where virtually every other demographic shifted in the opposite direction.

Depressing for many Southern progressives, heartening for Democrats everywhere else.
