i wish i was in dixie

the role of the south in politics

joe trippi

tom shaler - whistling past dixie, how dems can win without the south

jerome armstrong

some other guy - mudcat

tom: dems say "we can win without the south?" i would like to suggest it's not impossible. days i think how can you make this argument but other days its so obvious.

there's an undeniable historical precedent: the gop majorities between reconstructioin and new deal with almost zero southern support. and when i say no southern support, i mean no senators, none.

second, the dem south is only slightly larger than then, and the repubbb south is smaller.

third if florida is removed its absolutely possible, because florida is the least southern state.

if you remove florida the south has less electoral support than back in the 10's 20's and 30's.

only 19% of the house is southern repubbblicans, how come the dems can't build a majority?

the repubbbs have wom 80 of 99 state contest inthe pst nine presidental elecitons, and 83 percent of all electors.

repubbbs control a greater share of house and senate seats in the south than dems in the northeast.

the dems under clintongore lsot groudn in relatives terms in the south during the 90's.

clinton won the non-south by 9% more than he won the south.
