48. If You Say So, Sir
It is not necessary to gain a majority of that bloc, only to reduce somewhat the proportion of its attachment to the enemy. That is probably a goal that can be achieved.

One of the features of President Clinton's election victories was precisely the recapture of a proportion of the "Reagan Democrat" bloc, most noteably the Catholic portion of it. In his first victory, of course, he was greatly assisted by the peeling of another portion of the enemy's strength to the Perot insurgency. During President Clinton's administration, he was frequently under attack from the left flank, on matters ranging from military enlistmnent for homosexuals to changes in the welfare laws and the like, which lines can still be seen frequently here, often from people claiming to constitute the "base" of the Party.
