That's right. It's called the party switch. Now it's getting to the point where things are devolving on both sides.

racist statement. Do black people not know the KKK came from the Democrat party and thats the party that fought to keep slavery.
I don't know, but I am not.

Most Blacks know that the Democratic Party started the KKK. However, that was then. The main supporters of the KKK today aren't Democrats. After Barry Goldwater turned his back on the Civil Rights Act of 1964, this is when Black support for the GOP dropped off for good. Barry Goldwater won Deep South, and Arizona (Barry Goldwater barely won his home state. 50.45% of the vote, while Johnson won 49.45%). Alabama did not vote for Johnson at all. They voted for an unpledged elector than vote for Lyndon B. Johnson. Barry Goldwater did the strongest in Mississippi, the most anti-civil rights state of them all, besides Alabama.

And then the GOP had their Southern Strategy. Nixon made an attempt to appeal to southern Whites who were not happy with the gains Blacks were making in civil rights. Nixon didn't win the Deep South, but neither did the Democratic candidate Hubert H. Humphrey. George Wallace, the American Independent Party candidate won a few southern states. Nixon was abstract with his appeal to many white southerners in 1968. George Wallace was blunt with his support for segregation.

There are not that many of them, but the blacks who are Trump supporters get so much attention. I think blacks only poll like 9% in favor of Trump, yet the small few that are supporters get so much attention. Whereas I believe Hispanics poll at like 25% for Trump, but their supporters don't get much attention even though Trump had much higher support from Hispanic voters.

Why do you believe, apparently without question, the same pollsters who said for 2 straight years that Trump had no chance of even being nominated let along beating the pantsuit off Hillary Clinton?

Congressional votes for the CRA of 1964; look at the Ideology Vote Chart graphics at each of the following links:

House: https://www.govtrack.us/congress/votes/88-1964/h182
Senate:https://www.govtrack.us/congress/votes/88-1964/s409
If you had been watching the video, you'd know that no southern Republican supported the Civil Rights Act and only 8% of southern Democrats supported the Civil Rights Act.

95% of Northern Democrats (189-9) supported the Civil Rights Act
84% of Northern Republican (164-28) supported the Civil Rights Act
8% of Southern Democrats (9-103) supported the Civil Rights Act
0% (ZERO) Southern Republicans (0-12) supported the Civil Rights Act.

There just happened to be more Republicans in the North. But the Republicans in the South didn't support it. And the vast majority of Northern Democrats supported the Civil Rights Act.

At the end of the day, Barry Goldwater didn't support the Civil Rights Act, and this cost him the Black vote. And then came Nixon, who tried (in a covert way) to pander to the racist elements in the South in 1968. He lost the Deep South, but not to the Democrats. He lost to George Wallace, an ardent segregationist who left the Democratic Party because his segregationist stance was being rejected by the Democratic Party in 1968.

So, WHAT'S with the southern Democrats who voted against the CRA? Were there really that many more Democrats in the south than the north? Or are you just looking for an excuse for the Dems' ongoing racism?

Joe Biden, BTW was with those Southern Democrats & Republicans. Here he is in his own words about the civil rights act. He was against it, as he was against ending school segregation, as he was against Affirmative action.
"I do not buy the concept, popular in the 60s, which said, We have suppressed the black man for 300 years and the white man is now far ahead in the race for everything our society offers. In order to even the score, we must now give the black man a head start, or even hold the white man back, to even the race.

I dont buy that, I dont feel responsible for the sins of my father and grandfather.I feel responsible for what the situation is today, for the sins of my own generation. And Ill be damned if I feel responsible to pay for what happened 300 years ago.

The always hypocritical left would attempt to crucify Trump if he had EVER said anything like this.

You can tell Biden has a low opinion of black people because he made an assertion that was in no way plausible as though they would believe it.

He also said Obama was a fairy tale.....bright, clean and articulate.

If a Republican candidate said something like about Obama, the media and left would go crazy and call it racist.
The only blacks that Biden grew up with probably mowed his lawn. Delaware has less than a million residents and about 20% are black so he probably knew all of them.

Not so much more Democrats, but a higher percentage, relative to Republicans.
North: 198 Democrats, 192 Republicans
South: 112 Democrats, 12 Republicans

What's with the southern Democrats who voted against it? It's the South in the 1960s. While pretty much the entire USA was very racist during those times, the South was the worst. Both Republican and Democratic politicians were behind Jim Crow in the 1960s. Democrats might have started it after Reconstruction, but Republicans eventually joined them in the 20th century.

I notice you didn't ask what was going on with Republicans in the South. Better yet, I bring up that Barry Goldwater won the Deep South, and you ignore that. The North had more Democrats than the South. The North also had more Republicans than the South. The South had mostly Democrats.

I bring up the regional factor in this because there were more Democrats in the South relative to Repubicans. There were a higher percentage of Republican votes for the CRA over all because most of the Republicans were northerners. When it came to southern Republicans, NONE OF THEM voted for the Civil Rights Act. Why is that?
