All Reagan Democrats are six feet under by now. What decade does she think we are living in?
My in-laws are Reagan Democrats and they’re in their early 60s. Their friends who vote Republican are mainly Reagan Democrats as well, and they are in the same age group. As I’m typing this I’m realizing that many of my folks’ friends are Reagan Democrats and dad is only 66. I’d like to think they have another 20 years ahead of them.
Mrs. Palin is making a great point about a group that is far from “six feet under.” Some of these voters are reformed hippies who experienced reality in the 80s and voted for Reagan, and are again seeing reality as their retirement savings are in jeopardy.
