    This gender gap survey suggests that men have become more conservative than women? Or is it with the rise of so-called "populism," the reactionary Trumpist ideology that wants to party like it's 1959, some men have drifted in that direction, but a much larger percent of women are moving in the opposite direction because of this?

    It looks like a percentage of change, so it is more like women are becoming more liberal.

    In the case of England, both males and females are becoming more liberal, but the rate of change for women is higher than the rate of men.

    It would appear that bringing Willis into the Wades’ divorce had the desired effect and got Nathan to cooperate. Nathan Wade and his soon to be ex-wife have entered to temporary agreement resolving their divorce. To late to a oid damaging Willis’s FA case, but…..

    JD Vance knows better and is such a vile individual. Those guys have showed their true colors.....The GOP is clearly an anti liberal, authoritarian organization.

    Not a fail, more like a warning.

    John Burn-Murdoch is a data nerd with the Financial times.

    "American politics is in the midst of a racial realignment."




    The young do not feel the strong alliance to the democratic party as their parents do




    Conservative Browns and blacks are starting to align more with the party that represents those conservative views



    Social networks held people to vote for similar parties, as those networks expand (maybe social media) people can look to vote different than their community.



    This is the scary part, just like global warming, it can reach a tipping point and then just run cascade.





    This guy may turn out to be wrong, and this whole thing a bit exaggerated, but this could be scary for the Democratic party.

    Dude you’ve been making that case in this forum for years and years now.

    Call us when it actually happens. Not when you find yet another political writer making the same argument, again.

    ah, that’s why people of color are quickly and incessantly belittled and insulted with the most vile and racist language (to include here on Big Soccer)

    can’t have them straying off the Democratic plantation and thinking for themselves

    Or Republicans can keep losing everywhere as they've done since the Trump Mind Virus "won" in 2016. My guess is reproductive rights & Trumps criming should seal it for Biden. COVID killed lots of red hats & non-cult Republicans are tired of Trump's schtick.

    There is lots of data out there that it is happening.

    The 2020 election should show that it has been happening with Latino voters. And recent data is showing that it is happening with younger Black voters as well. The numbers are not huge, but as we have been saying, this stuff is won on the margins, and it seems Trump's disinfo is having an effect.

    I'm guessing there was outside money behind the campaign, and it wouldn't surprise me if it had some connection with Trump. Nor would it surprise me if Fox News was missing some context. However... in the old days, if the Machine wanted something like this to pass, the machine would have turned out the damn votes to get it passed.

    The idea of demographics are destiny and Democrats would dominate future elections depended on 2 things.

    That Democrats will hold on to their share of the white working class and that Democrats would continue to hold on to the winning margins among Latinos/immigrants.

    Texas was supposed to be one State that would show this.

    But as we know, Democrats have been losing the share of working whites faster than most pundits expected, thankfully this has been offset with increased college educated moving towards Democrats in large numbers.

    The fear that the authors I have posted about is that there are signs that the second part of "demographic are destiny" will also not happen as people predicted, because the Latino/Immigrant share of the vote will become more even in the future.

    And where are the signs that this could be happening?

    Well, in Texas.
