I imagine that’s what “college educated white men with no social conservatism” means. Bush’s support there has dropped fourteen points since 2000. Damn.
The countervailing trend - non-college white women - going for Bush is interesting, too; guess the culture war’s working there. It’s not as much of a shift, though; 3 points.
The diminished gender gap has been produced partly by Kerryâ€™s stronger performance among men, but dramatically by Roveâ€™s driving college educated white men out of the Republican base. Cultural politics has a price, felt directly in the diminished gender gap.
Reap what you sow, Rove, you son of a bitch.
