61. I think it would be helpful if you do.

 

Write an OP about this, that is.

Some of my own relatives defected in 1972 - i.e. usually reliable Democratic voters who pulled the lever for Nixon.

There are always lessons from the past, but interpreting things correctly takes care, and predicting the future inevitably involves some guesswork. One thing that strikes me as a significant difference between 1972 and now is that the New Deal consensus was still more or less in place back then. Wage growth had not yet started to fall behind productivity growth. I'm not suggesting this leads automatically to one conclusion or another, just that it's something to think about (and I haven't noticed anyone here on DU commenting on it).
