REALIGNMENT TAKES EVERYTHING WITH IT (via The Other Brother):

Are Newspaper Readers Going Republican, Too? (E&P Staff, December 14, 2004, Editor & Publisher)

Even as a new Gallup poll shows that the public values “values” less than November exit polls suggested, another survey from the same outfit released today showed a historic surge in Republican party affiliation.

In Gallup's latest poll this month, those identifying themselves as Republicans jumped to 37% of the public, with Democrats now clearly trailing with 32%.

Democrats have long held more party members than Republicans. During the Clinton years, the bulge was about 5% to 6%. As recently as late-October of this year the Democratic edge was 37% to 34%.


Their headline appears to be a jest, but the first media outlets that figure out the truth behind it will reap a readership/viewership bonanza.

"the first media outlets that figure out the truth behind it will reap a readership/viewership bonanza".

Didn't Rupert Murdoch and Roger Ailes already do that a decade ago? Heck--didn't Rush and Ed McLaughlin, the man who took him national do that 16 years ago?

51% of the Country votes for the President. The D's trash them as morons and they (the D's ) lose points. Duh?
