They have two traditional cores: the unions and urban progressives. As we've come to the realization that endless consumption, sprawl, and car-based land use and transit planning are economically, environmentally, and socially unsustainable, the interests of their traditional core voters has diverged. They had to choose and they chose the unions. I'm sure they did lots of number crunching before they made their choice. Urban progressives obviously don't bring as many votes, campaign dollars, and boots on the ground as the unions. Now that they've narrowed their base, they're not about to do anything that will discourage the continued production of cars and residential home construction.
