Reagan Democrats are for all practical purposes extinct. The fall of the Berlin Wall was the end of the Reagan Democrat. A young adult who grew up during the Reagan years, who is now economically and socially liberal/libertarian, is not a Reagan Democrat.
This poll-driven 'safe legal and rare' business that Selena Zito cites is not the legacy of Reagan Democrats - who actually believed in, and understood a few principles such as why it was important to be anti-Communist (that was an issue, but also a value). Quite a number of Reagan Democrats were Greatest Generation members who knew first hand too that war was hell and‚ sometimes necessary.
In fairness, 'safe legal and rare' is a tougher moral issue than being an anti-Communist. But it's also turned out to be the safe harbor for alternatively squeamish/pragmatic fence-sitting swing voters. Not to mention it's a Bill Clinton retread. But maybe it's time for a 90s revival... "Friends: The Movie," anyone?
