Here at long last, surely, was the long­awaited Republican realignment.  But his victory threw cold water on the claims of the Republicans to be the architects of a new political era. " The 1984 returns confirmed what has been growingly evident for some time: in almost every respect the Democratic Coalition has been disintegrating.  In 1984 Reagan captured two­thirds of the ballots of white males in the country at large, including even a majority of white men making less than $5000 a year.  And in the 1984 campaign there were further signs of the fraying of ethnic support, with Jews angered by Jesse Jackson's anti­Semitic remarks and associations, and Catholics increasingly militant about abortion.
