Looks like the Democrats have a important problem. The Republicans vote in unison for their own programme, but 20% of the Democrats are switching sides. We are talking about socio-economic issues here, not some national security stuff where everybody is afraid to be the next target of anti-patriotism accusations. If members of your party do not believe in your own policies, you will never convince the voters. The whole talk about how stupid voters vote against their own economic interest becomes moot.
