I’m telling you, the 2000 election, the election which began Sailer’s famous marriage gap, led Whites without bachelor’s degrees to vote for the GOP nominee to a greater degree than ones with them while the GOP nominee lost the popular vote, and introduced the red state-blue state paradigm, was the beginning of the Seventh Party System, which continues to this day. And George W. Bush, despite the derision heaped against him, whether fairly or unfairly, was undoubtedly great at politics, at least, in the early years.
