VOTERS: February 26, 2021 The last decade has seen a boom in voter turnout — for both parties. Between the 2012 and 2020 presidential elections, total voter turnout rose 23%, with Democratic turnout up 23% and Republican turnout up 22%. YET, BECAUSE of the changing distribution of votes, the results were significantly different. The 2012 election was not a close thing: Mitt Romney could...

VOTERS: December 25, 2020 Like Sherlock Holmes’ dog that didn’t bark in the night, so goes in politics: Uncharacteristic behavior can turn out to be crucially significant -- uncharacteristic behavior in politics being defined as one demographic group unexpectedly trending one way when most of the electorate trends the other.

JOE BIDEN: December 18, 2020 Identity politics seems to be sticking around. Important election results seemed to refute the notion that Americans vote for their ethnic or racial identity.

DEMOCRATS: December 4, 2020 “My sense is that if Trump wins, Hillary supporters will be sad,” left-wing writer Sally Kohn tweeted the day of the 2016 election. “If Hillary wins, Trump supporters will be angry. Important difference.” Kohn turned out to be wrong about her own side that year, which angrily set about...

REPUBLICANS: November 27, 2020 One of the many big surprises in this month’s surprising election was the Democrats’ failure to overturn Republican majorities in state legislatures. Various Democratic committees budgeted $88 million to flip majorities in big states such as Texas, Florida and North Carolina. Total gains: zero. THAT...
