        The meme held by some here that Democrats have moved so far to the right, to be equivalent to the old Rockefeller Republicans, is so strong, data won't change their minds.

        •  Socially liberal, economically (0+ / 0-)

          conservative. Sounds exactly like the mainline Dem Party of 2013 and the Rockefeller Republicans. The author of the article agrees:

          Economically [the Democratic Party's] proposals tend to be center to center-right.
