On "This Week" this morning, George Will mentioned the book "The Emerging Democratic Majority". Apparently, this is the hottest political book out there right now. The authors write for the New Republic. This link will take you to an article outlining their ideas. http://www.tnr.com/doc.mhtml?i=20020805&s=judis080502 3 points really make up their argument. 1) Women and minorities are key Democrat voting blocks, and they're voting in greater and greater numbers. 2) America is becoming more urban, and urban areas tend to vote Democratic. 3) "Professionals" are switching allegiance from the GOP to Democrats. I suppose there are numerous articles out there that point to an opposite trend. Only time will tell.
