Exurbs Are Republicans' New Frontier
Almost half of Bush's winning victory stemmed from the fastest growing counties in the nation. The future political power of these counties pose a growing challenge to Democratic Party.
"In states like Ohio, Minnesota and Virginia, Republican strength in these outer suburbs is offsetting Democratic gains over the last decade in more established and often more affluent inner-tier suburbs. As Democrats analyze a demoralizing defeat in this month's presidential election, one key question they face is whether they can reduce the expanding Republican advantage on the new frontier between suburbs and countryside."
