DAILY HERALD
— Roskam flip-flops on Trump; now undecided – Robert Sanchez  (DIERSEN: Ever-increasingly, anti-Trumps make it clear that they will get rid of you if you vote for Trump.)
http://www.dailyherald.com/article/20161011/news/161019760/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Just hours after saying U.S. Rep. Peter Roskam was planning to vote for Donald Trump, spokesman David Pasch on Tuesday rescinded the remark. Instead, Pasch released a written statement saying Roskam is undecided on how he will vote Nov. 8. “Hillary Clinton has already disqualified herself by her actions and deeds,” Pasch wrote in an email Tuesday afternoon. “Donald Trump has 28 days left to convince him (Roskam) that he’s the right person to fix our broken tax code, bring accountability to the federal government, and restore American leadership to the world stage.” The statement is very different from what Pasch wrote in a Tuesday morning email. “I can confirm he is still planning to vote for Donald Trump,” the earlier email said. The confusion comes as other GOP leaders are distancing themselves from Trump after a video surfaced last week of a 2005 conversation in which the reality TV star talked about trying to have sex with a married woman and being able to grope women. Roskam, a Wheaton Republican, on Monday called Trump’s comments and the attitude they reflect “disgusting and corrosive.”  Last week — days before the scandal broke — Roskam said the election is a “binary choice” and he was planning to vote for Trump. He said he views Trump as a “wild card” who he was “choosing to vote for … over the unworthy candidate.” Roskam said Trump has made comments during the campaign that he doesn’t agree with. He also said he won’t defend “every wild statement” Trump makes.)

http://thehill.com/opinion/mark-mellman/299299-mellman-changing-patterns
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Much has been written about the increasing proportion of the electorate that is made up of minorities: African-Americans, Latinos, Asians and others. While Republicans’ grassroots hostility to diversity makes life very difficult for the GOP at the presidential level, important and under-discussed transformations have impacted white voters as well. The share of noncollege-educated whites has been cut in half since 1980. When Ronald Reagan defeated Jimmy Carter, nearly two-thirds of the electorate was made up of noncollege-educated whites. By 2012, that number had shrunk to just 37 percent. Meanwhile, as minority participation has risen, white college graduates’ share of the electorate has remained stable, so that in 2012, white voters divided about evenly between college and noncollege graduates.  That dramatic change in educational attainment presents profound political implications. Pew’s recently published compendium of party identification data helps sort through the numbers. In 1992, whites without college experience were more likely to identify as Democrats than as Republicans by a 9-point margin. In the quarter-century since, party identification among noncollege whites was closely contested, with Democrats holding on to a few more in some years and Republicans edging ahead in others. Beginning in 2008, the GOP margin with noncollege whites increased substantially, reaching 26 points this year. Despite what some would have you believe, this is not wholly an effect of Donald Trump. While the GOP advantage reached its current zenith this year, it had been moving strongly in that direction for the past eight. At the same time, a wholly opposite process is at work among whites who have graduated from college. In 1992, whites with a college degree were even more Republican than whites without a degree were Democratic. College-educated whites identified with the Republican Party by an 11-point margin when Bill Clinton defeated George H.W. Bush. But, beginning in 2004, that gap narrowed substantially — today, Democrats enjoy a 1-point edge with college-educated whites. That margin is fueled, importantly, by those with post-graduate experience. What was an even split in 1992 has grown into a 12-point Democratic advantage among those with a post-graduate education. So while Republicans are, and have been, making gains with noncollege whites, they are suffering continuing — albeit smaller — defections from whites who hold a college degree. In the long run, that’s bad news for the GOP, because while whites continue to shrink as a proportion of the electorate, noncollege whites — Republicans’ real base — are shrinking, too. Over the last 20 years, the percent of whites with a bachelor’s degree or more increased at about two-thirds of a percentage point a year, or 2.7 points every four years. Before conservatives start yelling about the liberal academic elite, it is worth noting that there is significant controversy about the magnitude and mechanism of what happens to political attitudes on campus.)
