    whose non-party voters equal or outnumber enrolled Dems or Repubs have trended Republican lately. Lots of "Reagan Democrats" out this way, even after all these years.

    •  While It was was my first election, I was a Reagan (0+ / 0-)

      democrat for his first term. However the driving force was that we were Kennedy democrats. I think it was his fight to the convention and the barn burner of a speech he gave that made it more palatable to vote for Reagan then Carter. Our guy had lost and we weren't going to vote for the guy he lost too.

      While I've forgotten the specifics, even within in his first term he started to deviate from his campaign promises on things like student loans and SS related issue.. I did not vote for him a second time.
