A Florida-based Democratic pollster, Dave Beattie, coined the phrase “Starbucks Republicans” in 2004, calling them independent-leaning voters in high-growth areas in the South and West who ultimately backed George W. Bush two years ago but are now disappointed in the president and the Republican Congress.
So what are non-independent-leaning voters in low-growth areas in the North and East who ultimately backed Kerry called? Tim Horton’s Democrats? Oh wait, that’s for the Canadians who supported Kerry. How about 7-11 Colombian Supremo Democrats for those in the US?
