Interesting article, but not a big enough disparity to suggest a major shift; the discrepancy in percentage implies closer to even than favoring one party. Still, I know gobs of people, myself included, who debunk that prejudiced, class-fueled view of conservatives or Republicans being richie riches.
Democratic members of the House of Representatives now represent most of the nation’s wealthiest people, a sharp turnaround from the long-standing dominance that Republicans have held over affluent districts.
A USA TODAY analysis of new Census data found that Democrats represent a far different constituency today than they did in 2005, when they were the minority in the House, or in 1990, when they were the majority.
For argument’s sake: maybe now that the wealthy seem to be Democrats they’ll want to decide for themselves what they do with their money and become fiscally conservative? That’s rhetorical.
