A New Democratic Majority: Hold Up

In 2002, political analysts Jud Judis and Ruy Teixeira penned a book The Emerging Democratic Majority arguing the country’s evolving demographic shifts would give rise to a robust new Democratic-voting population base. Specifically, the authors believed, a new governing coalition of people of color, single women, working-class whites and highly-educated professionals would emerge and forge a squad of power ensuring the Democratic Party would be back in power in Washington for decades.

They called this group the New Democratic Majority.
