If you don’t believe that politics changes in a heartbeat, you need look back no further than the past few decades, when pundits and prognosticators predicted with certainty that one political party or the other had died, never again to be resurrected. Ronald Reagan swept into office in 1980 on the strength of voters who came to be known as Reagan Republicans, many of them former Democrats who found the former California governor’s practical politics and fiscal conservatism appealing. When Reagan’s two terms were up and his vice president, George Herbert Walker Bush, was elected, a new Republican dynasty was declared by so-called political experts.
