"How Fragile Is the New Democratic Coalition?" - New York Times. 09/03/2013.

This piece on recent geographic trends in voting looks at factors such as increases in the prominence of Democrats in urban areas, in homogeneous community sorting, and in single-party voting across a range of issues. The author cites Ron Lesthaeghe and Lisa Neidert's work on the Second Demographic Transition in providing a cultural backdrop for these trends.
