At NRO, Larry Kudlow has a column on the Democrats' bungled attempts at fanning the fames of class war.
In the 2004 election, "exit polls showed that people earning $50,000 and above — a group representing 55 percent of all voters — went for Bush 56 percent to 43 percent."
Another reason for plunging Democratic fortunes is that roughly 50 percent of U.S. families — or about 95 million people — are card-carrying members of the investor/ownership class. Investors tended to vote in favor of Bush by about 10 percentage points.
The party of the rich is morphing into everyone who isn't a tree-hugger or a feminazi, slowly but surely . . . but that's just my assessment.
