The Electorate

A week of crazy work, one new hard drive and a few scary moments installing it into my laptop and I'm back.

The Pew Research Center came out with their map of the U.S. electorate this week. Here's how things seem to break up according to the number crunchers:

Republicans:
Enterprisers
Social Conservatives
Pro-Government Conservatives

Democrats:
Liberals
Disadvantaged Democrats
Conservative Democrats

Undecideds:
Upbeats
Disaffecteds
Bystanders

Probably the most notable statistic is that each party has its own hierarchy of wealth. Enterprisers and Liberals at the top, Pro-Gov. Cons and Disadvantaged Dems at the other end. The political realignment of the last few years has rendered coalitions in each party that span socioeconomic borders.

Anyway, i just decided that this is boring. I'll post it just because I've written this much, but I think behemoth political parties that advertise to their consumer base and shift with the winds just to retain power do a disservice to America.
