9. There is no such thing as Reagan Democrats any longer...
...they are either dead or call themselves Republicans now.

For comparison, are there any more "Eisenhower Republicans" or "FDR Democrats"? It was a term invented by the media to explain demographic blocs (see also soccer moms, NASCAR dads, et.al). The notion of the Reagan Democrat is a myth perpetrated by the Rethugs to spread false notions about a demographic that does not exist today. Even if it did exist at one time, for one candidate, does that mean that they voted for Shrub or that they will vote for MCSAME?
