The New York Post came out today with a feature on the Brooklyn Young Republican Club, established in 1880, and its ongoing efforts to sway Brooklyn towards Republican principles:

By the age of 7, Glenn Nocera already identified as a Republican. And already, he was outnumbered.

Nocera’s father was a union pressman, and pretty much by definition that meant a Democratic household, in step with the Democratic households surrounding theirs in the Kensington section of Brooklyn. So when Nocera became captivated by Ronald Reagan at a young age and soon decided his personal party affiliation lined up with the Gipper’s, he was putting himself in a distinct minority.

Eventually, Nocera converted his immediate family, he says. But his days of swimming against the tide had just begun.
