My personal musings about anything that gets on my radar screen--heavily dominated by politics.


Interesting Politics Read

USA Today ran an interesting story today profiling some of the voters who can't be called Republican but who voted for the President in November, all of whom came from counties that switched from Al Gore in 2000 to GW in 2004. It also has a five-point analysis of what caused these counties to swing.

Interesting factoid from within the article:

Still, across the nation, the shift was striking: 153 counties that voted Democratic for president in 1996 and 2000 chose Bush in 2004; only 11 chose Democrat John Kerry after voting Republican in 1996 and 2000.

Not a must-read, but interesting if you have some time.
