About freaking time...!

A recent Pew Research Center survey has found that:
Public allegiance to the Republican Party has plunged during George W. Bush's presidency... [the survey] found a "dramatic shift" in political party identification since 2002, when Republicans and Democrats were at rough parity. Now, 50% of those surveyed identified with or leaned toward Democrats, whereas 35% aligned with Republicans.

What's more, the survey found, public attitudes are drifting toward Democrats' values: Support for government aid to the disadvantaged has grown since the mid-1990s, skepticism about the use of military force has increased and support for traditional family values has decreased.
Digby comments on the results:
People get tired of being lectured all the time by santimonious tight-asses. And if you are going to start wars for no good reason you'd better "win" the damned thing.
Their party is morally and intellectually bankrupt and the only way they can function is to cheat.

I don't know if it's morning in America, but the country seems to be waking up.
