  •  As for Gore vs. Clinton (0+ / 0-)

    you can see the regression perspective here, although keep in mind those are the 1998/2000 district boundaries and numbers.

    Bush over-performed in some Appalachian areas, like KY and MO and WV--but some of them were probably trending away even during the Clinton years.  

    But I wouldn't necessarily say that "Clinton shifted the democratic party from the New Deal urban-rural coalition to a urban-suburban coalition".  I think that, broadly speaking, started to or continued to happen under Clinton, but that doesn't mean he was the cause.

    27, Dem, Dude seeing a dude, CT-04(originally), PA-02/NY-14 (formerly PA-02/NY-12).
