"What Amer­ica Has Been, and What It Is Be­com­ing"

"Elect­or­ally, this di­ver­gence has be­nefited Demo­crats in pres­id­en­tial elec­tions be­cause the groups com­fort­able with Amer­ica's evol­u­tion are cast­ing a grow­ing share of bal­lots in those con­tests. But it's helped Re­pub­lic­ans to con­trol Con­gress by deep­en­ing their hold on com­munit­ies out­side of America's urb­an cen­ters, where these changes are con­cen­trated."

Ronald Brownstein in National Journal contrasts the Republicans' "coalition of restoration" and the Demo­crats' "co­ali­tion of trans­form­a­tion."
