Actually the trend isn’t so much towards Liberal as people voting identity (and by way of that Party) rather than beliefs and ideology.

Blacks and Hispanics are examples of this. They are much more Conservative then their voting patterns reflect.

People want to vote for the “cool” candidate....it shows the impact that Hollywood and shows like “The Daily Show” have on the electorate....people don’t get their views from “Meet the Press” anymore, those were your Dad’s political shows.

Socially they are conservative - but not in terms of economics. That is what needs more advocacy ala Jack Kemp. Reagan always sought to expand the base. Since Bush I and Rove et al, the Geriatric Old Plotters just assume they cannot expand the base and have made scant effort to do so. They don’t believe in conservative ideals - they simply do not believe what they espouse - thus they make no effort to enlighten and expand the ideas of individual liberty and prosperity.

You can see it on this thread. The party catamites just scream for silence. That is all they offer. Stalin’s freedom to agree. They fear ideas, not being very adept at thought themselves.
