  •  it would be interesting sometime to see analysis (0+ / 0-)

    of whether most folks who switch from Republican to Democratic tend to be more Democratic-lite (i.e. center-right or center-center) or if they end up tending to be more progressive over time (i.e. center-left).

    Of course, a center-right Democrat, in most states where electing out-and-out progressives is nearly impossible, is still far better than radical right-wing crackpots like Michele Bachmann, etc.

    But, still, it would be interesting to see an analysis of how "Democratic" those who switch from Republican to Democrat are compared to most lifelong Democrats. (Would do an analysis myself, except for the lack of time.)
