Of Politics And Demographics

Michael Barone notes that demographic trends appear to be favoring Republicans–good news for a party that appears to be suffering through some lean years. If Republicans are able to pull off a victory this year against Barack Obama, then John McCain, should he run for re-election, will find the electoral map to be even more amenable to his cause in 2012. And if Obama wins this year, he will have to worry about the electoral map should he seek re-election four years from now.
