Final proof that the white working class remains deeply Democratic

Springsteen fans in New Jersey skew sharply left:Corzine has been beating Christie by at least ten points in this demographic, even back when Christie was way ahead statewide. This proves that Thomas Frank is wrong and Larry Bartels is right: the white working class never left the Democratic Party.

Well, it only actually proves that if we believe that Springsteen fans are the same people he sings about. More research needed.

Since the best way to study these things is soak 'n' poke, you should ask the NSF to fund front row seats at 30 Springsteen concerts.
