Where Have All the Democrats Gone?

Long time passing...I explain in my latest at The Liberal Patriot:
"The Democratic coalition in 2020 was not strong as attested to by their narrower-than-expected Presidential victory, losses in House races and resulting razor-thin control of Congress. Since then, Democrats have lost support, well, pretty much everywhere.
Democrats might have hoped that after their relatively poor showing among Hispanics in 2020, they would make up the lost ground as they moved toward 2022. Nope, not happening. They might have hoped that, after holding the line among white working class (noncollege) voters in 2020 and even making some modest gains, they could avoid catastrophic slippage among this demographic going forward. Nope, it’s happening again. And they might have hoped, fervently, that their strong gains among white college voters in 2020—by far the most important single factor in Biden’s victory—would hold in the future and perhaps improve further. Not happening either."
