Georgia -- along with most of the former Confederate states -- were heavily Democratic states for decades. The Republican trend was only a recent phenomenon, as the Democrats became more and more of a political party of freaks.

It wouldn't take much to turn these states back to "Blue," considering the racial/ethnic makeup of their populations. A lot of folks who aren't familiar with the South don't realize how large the black population is down there. And that's a group that would cast 90% of its vote even for a white Democratic candidate with a KKK past.

Some of them, even if he was CURRENTLY in the KKK.

Probably true but I don't see them being broken glass voters for Hillary. She'll get 90% of a lot less votes than Obama did.

That logic is the opposite of what has happened and why white south went GOP with Nixon onwards

BTW....look at Goldwater too or how well JFK fared...not

Its about social issues...always has been

Dixicrats were more social right wing by a long shot than Yankee GOP

And BTW...New Deal dems had nearly all the country locked up before Like

South did go democrat from Hayes ....as a rebuff of harsh Reconstruction...who can blame them

I am old enough to remember personally conservative democrats and when conservative GOP were outliers like Barry and Ronnie and Bill

It simply was not defined like today

LBJ laid this groundwork....I wonder if he would be happy now

All this entrenched ever growing power...but at what cost

Our soul basically.... our doom frankly

This ship is not turning around short of force
