This is just a shade worse than Romney's "47%" line but a few shades better than Todd Akin's "legitimate rape" lunancy.
So the good news is that even after all the incompetence and all the failed programs, America survives and because of its inherent greatness, is poised for a roaring comeback. It starts by taking back the Senate on Tuesday, the GOP controlled Congress must then create the agenda for which we will elect our next President. Both symbolic legislation, ending the "Czar" thing, and actual legislation, passing a budget on time, can occur and will be wildly popular. It will also end the trope that the "GOP can't govern". Cheer up conservatives, Monday is this administration's high water mark, the plug gets pulled Tuesday. Everything that comes after that will be reversable or extremely damaging to the future possibility of a Democratic win in 2016.
John Podhoretz is on to something, enough with the moderators. If the debate can't be self moderating (i.e. having 13 people on stage) then it shouldn't be done. What's the fear, that one person would overwhelm the other? If we need a timekeeper to ring a bell, fine, but there should be no interjection whatsoever by any non-candidate.
If say, 70% of the gains from the shift are in districts already locked down by the GOP, then it is meaningless. You see, the gains would have to come in districts the GOP doesn't control or has to fight for. We need a focus on the micro-demographics to understand how elections will swing.
The big flaw with this study is that it is a macro study. The Presidency in 2012 was decided in a couple dozen counties by a few million people. I'm more interested in knowing how those counties are going to shake out in 2016.
I do not share your optimism. I have run into many people of the same people you are referring to and they still don't get it.
I have zero faith that this signals any sort of shift that will make a measurable difference in future elections for the GOP.
I'd say its been on the decline since creation.

http://tabletmag.com/jewish-news-and-politics/186397/teenage-girls-europe-isis Lee Smith on why Westerners turn to ISIS. I think the same problem Mr. Smith presents is the same thing that makes excessive partying, radical activism, and the general apathy that seems to permeate youth culture all points to one problem. People have a lack of purpose in their lives. We gain purpose through work, family, religion, and civic activities are a few. Young people have a problem with finding meaningful employment. The family unit has been destroyed. Young people are consistently turning away from traditional Western religions and turning to modern day shamanistic beliefs and even worse, cults. Young people also get sucked into causes that are en vogue but are not very meaningful, think of all the various silly causes that have popped up and what those people could be focusing on instead. People need to have some purpose in their life. People need some sense of adventure or a way to channel their youthful energy into a productive cause. If they can't find that in America, they will go abroad looking for it.
