Skip to comments.Rising number of states seeing one-party rule (Republicans have the edge)
Posted on 11/11/2012 2:31:19 AM PST by Evil Slayer
Divided government still rules in the nations capital after last weeks Tuesdays vote, but unity is increasingly the name of the game in cities such as Annapolis, Topeka, Concord and Little Rock.
In a little-noticed footnote to last weeks election, state legislature elections this year have produced the highest number of states with one-party rule in 60 years. Democrats or Republicans now have sole control of the governorship and both legislative chambers in 37 state capitals around the country.
According to the National Conference of State Legislatures (NCSL), which tracks party representation in the countrys 50 state governments, Democrats now control all three bases of power the governorship and both houses of the state legislature in 14 states and Republicans in 23, with only 12 states sharing power. (Nebraskas unicameral legislature is considered nonpartisan.)
Regional power bases are also emerging, with Democrats increasingly dominating state governments across New England.
Conversely, after last weeks vote, the GOP for the first time since 1872 now controls the Arkansas House and Senate. Just 20 years ago, Republicans didnt have a majority in a single legislative house in the states of the old Confederacy now they control all 11.
The number of states with divided government is down from 31 just 16 years ago to 12 today, prompting speculation on the countrys evolving partisan geography.
I think it is a reflection of a growing sorting-out of our population where people live and our politics, said Karl Kurtz, a political scientist at the NCSL. They tend to go all the same way for governor, for legislator and for that matter for president.
Bill Bishop, author of the book The Big Sort on the growing polarization of American politics, said, There are mores states that have tipped either increasingly

In one bright note for Republicans, the party added one net governorship its total, with 30 GOP governors nationwide to 20 Democrats.
Lets see which States are better run and have a better quality of life.

...and do large cities play into the statistics?
Obama’s still trying to figure out what happened to the other 7 states.
Get your children out of government schools.
Imagine if we didn’t have the 17th Amendment stepping on our necks. We would have a huge majority in the US Senate.
Even Michigan is a large GOP majority state.
Let’s have all 37 secede, so I can move to one of them.
I could get out of this Democrat controlled Maryland and go somewhere that people have enough common sense to vote against the Muslim.
Now don’t forget, Obama said in 2008 that he had already visited 57 states, had one to go, and his campaign wasn’t letting him go to Hawaii and Alaska. That means that he believes there are 60 states!
So far this is true, However, even the “good” states are going to be overwhelmed by national debt, Obamacare, and other horrid policies before long. I think people are going to find that there is nowhere to run.
Lock step unity is the very LAST thing we want. DO NOT SUCCUMB TO IT!!!!
It will be the beginning of the Fascist States of America.
For the greater good? That good is defined unilaterally by liberal fascists....do not allow it!
Read why here:
Many will. But here is a problem. Insurance COMPANIES are national, and as they become unprofitable in some big blue states they will go out of business or change their models altogether. It’s less state policy driving this and more about how much they can tolerate financially.
Not in EV
Amazingly, West Virginia is now voting reliably for the Republican for President but geneally Democrat for everything else. But this year we have a historic high in State House delegates (45 of 100, highest since 1932) and just won the Attorney General and one Supreme Court race, to add to the first GOP Supreme Court justice and 2 of 3 Congressman. So we are gradually strengthening even here in the home state of Senator Byrd.
I'll say it again ...
Conservative principles need to be cultivated from the ground up, not the top down.
Look at state like North Dakota. One of the "darkest red" states in the U.S., with Republicans in control at the state level in both the legislative and executive branches. Barack Obama got something like 39% of the vote there in 2012, yet the Democratic candidate for the U.S. Senate won.
It's time to stop this crap where we have Beltway @ssholes with access to hundreds of millions of dollars in campaign cash driving the agenda all over the U.S.
Supposedly, Alabama voted to nullify the mandates.
Unfortunately we now have an oozing infection of defeatist cowards sliming all over FR trying to demoralize the rest of us like they are.
True enough, popular vote electoral allocation within the states is a damning indictment of the national popular vote. Michigan would have gone to Romney if electoral votes were awarded by districts won rather than winner take all.
I personally think our chances of throwing out the 17th amendment are brightening as well.
And when Gov. Scott in FL and Gov. Kasich in OH, both Republicans, improved the dismal economic condition of their states....the ignorant welfare/university classes voted for Obama. Disgusting.
There really ought to be a mass exodus of the sane states. Let the Obama states starve.
Things got better in those 2 states so the voters credited Obama.

From Lynn Victory on Facebook:
Thanks for what you are doing. My son is friends with a guy in the Romney campaign who has actually been on since 2008. He is not high up, but said that the O campaign bought high tech equipment to target county by county where the votes were needed in battle-ground states, so that they could bus in the needed votes. The guy would not say fraud, but that is fraud.

BREAKING: St. Lucie County, Florida Had 141.1% Turnout; Obama Won County
Between St. Lucie and Broward Counties, we have a pretty good idea what happened in Florida. Normal voting is what, 50% turnout? It doesnt take many counties like this to affect an entire state by multiple percentage points.
All of these numbers between 99% (Pennsylvania) and 141.1% (Florida) turnout in dozens of counties in swing states makes me think Team Obama was panicking a lot just before the election, with Mitt up by 7% in certain early voting polls.
They overcompensated so much the fraud is impossible to hide. I think they know it, which may be one reason Axelrod is stepping down. (Sound familiar Petraeus and Benghazi?)
As I told someone earlier today, this is who Obama is. This is who Chicago (the machine) is.
Do we really want this to be who America is?
Is this how we will define our elections from 2008 on? As Mitt says, America can do better.
We must do better. We cant let the message be out there that America will let this fraud go.
Want to do something about all of this? Tiffany Banks and Darin Southam forwarded me a list of people you can contact who are in the November 9, 2012 3:12 PM comment below.
Did you know voters can request a recount in certain states? (Ohio, Virginia, Florida, Wisconsin!) Take a look at the comment by @RightonMainSt dated November 9, 2012 11:45 PM below for instructions! Mitt will have to ask in Colorado himself. (Yes, you Mitt!)
It has also been suggested that we ask Republican Secretaries of State NOT to certify the election until all questions about voter fraud are abated.
Some people think this may provoke a crisis, but it cant be worse than the one we are looking at for the next four years and the impact on generations to come!
America NEEDS Mitt, and Mitt won fair and square. This was not a ballot stuffing competition but an election. Lets make sure its counted that way!
Thank you all. Over 7,500 people have visited this page in the first 24 hours and I hope millions will see it eventually. Please pass it on! We can do this! (Yes we can!)

We can't wait for 2014 and 2016 to regroup and figure out new strategies. By then it will be too late. The Marxist/Muslim usurper will have completed his planned distruction of America. That's what people fail to understand.
We must act NOW.
Start with the election. If we let the Rats get away with this massive voter fraud, we're no better than a bananna republic.
We must keep digging and pounding him every day, in every way we can- phony birth certificate, Benghazi, Fast and Furious, his hidden life, records....
We FReepers are warriors! Those who shug their shoulders and accept this don't deserve to be called FReepers. We never give up. We fight!
