SHY TORIES:

Liberals Are Losing the Culture Wars : Tuesday's elections, which hinged on social issues such as gay rights and pot, call into question Democrats' insistence that Republicans are out of step with the times. (MOLLY BALL  NOV 4, 2015, The Atlantic)

Democrats have become increasingly assertive in taking liberal social positions in recent years, believing that they enjoy majority support and even seeking to turn abortion and gay rights into electoral wedges against Republicans. But Tuesday's results--and the broader trend of recent elections that have been generally disastrous for Democrats not named Barack Obama--call that view into question. Indeed, they suggest that the left has misread the electorate's enthusiasm for social change, inviting a backlash from mainstream voters invested in the status quo.

The Culture Wars are a rout.
