From the Publisher

Political experts John B. Judis and Ruy Teixeira convincingly use hard data -- demographic, geographic, economic, and political -- to forecast the dawn of a new progressive era. In the 1960s, Kevin Phillips, battling conventional wisdom, correctly foretold the dawn of a new conservative era. His book, The Emerging Republican Majority, became an indispensable guide for all those attempting to understand political change through the 1970s and 1980s. At the beginning of the twenty-first century, with the country in Republican hands, The Emerging Democratic Majority is the indispensable guide to this era.
In five well-researched chapters and a new afterword covering the 2002 elections, Judis and Teixeira show how the most dynamic and fastest-growing areas of the country are cultivating a new wave of Democratic voters who embrace what the authors call "progressive centrism" and take umbrage at Republican demands to privatize social security, ban abortion, and cut back environmental regulations.
As the GOP continues to be dominated by neoconservatives, the religious right, and corporate influence, this is an essential volume for all those discontented with their narrow agenda -- and a clarion call for a new political order.

DON’T TELL the stock market, but prospects for quick action on a tax code overhaul aren’t looking great. The legislative hurdles are significant, sure, but a more pressing problem might be that the GOP is still split on fundamentals. A push by House Republican leaders to impose a new levy on imports has generated the most static so far. That measure, the so-called border adjustment tax, would pay for lower corporate rates across the board by raising some $1 trillion over a decade. But major retailers and oil refiners, among others, argue it would cause prices on consumer goods to spike. That

Why Republicans Are Embracing Climate Change

THROUGHOUT PRESIDENT OBAMA’S eight years in the White House, congressional Republicans rarely sounded the alarm over climate change. Even for those worried about it, there was no incentive to join with a Democratic Administration bullish on environmental issues. If the cause was already being championed, what, the political calculus went, was gained by defying their own party? As with so much else in Washington, the election of President Trump has upended that thinking. The President has called climate change a “hoax” and issued Executive Orders to roll back Obama-era green initiatives. To ru
