@snideoptimist Grosse Pointe received an earlier wave of white flight, in the 1920s, according to @TomSugrue. In general, white flight went to both affluent and modest big-city suburbs, depending on family wealth. But it certainly did not go to Appalachia.
@Noahpinion On the other hand, this thread is valuable as a document of early 21st century American political tribalism and social resentment.
@Noahpinion Man, this is an argumentum ex culus if I ever saw one....You're claiming white flight went to Appalachia and Western PA?? White flight went to big-city suburbs with great schools, where kids win science projects and grow up to work at Google. Grosse Pointe, MI, Fairfax Co., VA
@MattGrossmann Hmm. The RR items are definitely tapping into more “fundamental” political values than “increase/decrease spending” Q’s. Seems to me that those are the kind of items you’d expect to be winning regression horseraces in an era of rising constraint.
