Revenge of the Wal-Mart Voters

RealClearPolitics - Articles - Revenge of the Wal-Mart Voters:
"Weekly Wal-Mart shoppers make up about one-fifth of the U.S. population.

Zogby finds that while 85 percent of frequent Wal-Mart shoppers voted for President Bush's reelection in 2004 (and 88 percent of people who never shop there voted for Sen. John Kerry), Wal-Mart voters have turned on the president dramatically. In a poll taken earlier this month, they gave Bush a 35 percent approval rating -- compared to a 45 percent positive rating from born-again Christians, 49 percent from NASCAR fans, and 54 percent from self-identified conservatives.

Most worrying for the GOP: Fifty-one percent of Wal-Mart voters agreed with the statement that it's 'time for the Democrats to take over and run' Congress -- as opposed to just 31 percent who think 'Republicans deserve to retain control.'"
Thanks to Carpetbagger Report for the link. I think this development is almost hopeful.
