Chait, Jonathan
April 2006
New Republic;4/3/2006, Vol. 234 Issue 12, p38
In this article the author muses on the difference between blue (liberal) states and red (conservative) ones. He notes that in the mind of many conservatives patriotism can be measured by gun ownership, being a fan of NASCAR or driving a pick-up truck. He disproves the red state assertion that conservatives make up the political majority in the United States.
