If I'm not mistaken, Democrats would usually take all Southern states until the sixties, where they took a stance against segregation. That's when Republicans started winning them.--CamilleT 20:56, 6 March 2012 (EST)

See Engel v. Vitale, which banned classroom prayer, and other liberal rulings by the Warren Court. Liberal newspapers just cannot accept that the South votes based on religious values.--Andy Schlafly 21:04, 6 March 2012 (EST)


I would call this strategy a liberal myth. Both parties entice demographics and race as evident with widespread gerrymandering. While Nixon had designs, so did those before and after. Aschlafy is absolutely correct that as Democrats moved further and further left, they abandoned the Bible belt. The '64 Civil Rights Act wasn't a turning point. This was a gradual movement. Liberals constantly cite this as evidence of a grand scheme to build white supremecy and to label the entire region racist.Southern Strategy is a leftist myth.--Jpatt 17:29, 22 July 2015 (EDT)
