Politico – Democratic New York is back — though really, it was here all along.

Bill de Blasio trounced Joe Lhota on Tuesday to return City Hall to Democratic hands for the first time since David Dinkins was ousted in 1993, riding the coalition of traditional liberals, young progressives, politically active unions and minority voters that’s come to dominate city politics.

His win brought what was under the surface to the top: Rudy Giuliani and Mike Bloomberg won the past five citywide elections on the strength of their mega-personalities and the particularities of the circumstances, not because New York was a secret bastion of Republican politics.
