Thread Name: BS: history of USA Presidential elections...
Subject: RE: BS: history of USA Presidential elections...
Here's another fascinating thing. Go to the year on each succeeding election and take a look at which areas of the country voted for which party. The situation has completely reversed itself like a virtual mirror image! New England and the Northwest used to vote consistently Republican...they now vote Democratic. The South used to vote consistently Democratic...it now votes Republican.

The fortunes of the different parties have changed radically from one era to another, as have the loyalties of different regions of the country.
