From Stanley Greenberg's New York Times op-ed, Tuesday, November 11, 2008: I'm finished with the Reagan Democrats in Macomb County in Michigan after making a career of spotlighting their middle-class anger and frustrations about race and Democratic politicians. Bill Clinton wrote in his autobiography that my "extensive research on the so-called Reagan Democrats and what it would take to bring them home" was the reason he hired me as his pollster for his presidential campaign.
