Where did all the "old" Dem bigots go when they left the Democratic Party? Hmmmm. I wonder.
Let see 26 known dixiecrats 5 governors and 21 senators only 3 became republicans: Strom Thurmond, Jesse Helms and Mills E. Godwind, Jr.

The rest of the racist dixicrats returned to where they felt most at home the racist democrat party and fought against the Civil Rights acts of 1957, 1960 and 1964.

KKK Kleagle, {a recruiter who persuaded people to join the KKK} dixicrat Robert Byrd went back to his beloved racist democrat party and led the racist democrat filibuster of the Civil Rights Act of 1964

and how many of the unknown members of the Democratic Party changed their membership to Republican? Huh? A LOT. That's why the Republican Party today is what it is. Whether you like to believe it or not, you guys got the largest share of the old Dem bigots and racists.

Though the "Solid South" had been a longtime Democratic Party stronghold due to the Democratic Party's defense of slavery prior to the American Civil War and segregation for a century thereafter, many white Southern Democrats stopped supporting the party following the civil rights plank of the Democratic campaign in 1948 (triggering the Dixiecrats), the African-American Civil Rights Movement, the passage of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and Voting Rights Act of 1965, and desegregation.

Southern strategy - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

As far as I can tell, 2012 is AFTER 1965 and desegregation. The Democratic Party today is not the same as the Democratic Party prior to 1965.

In American politics, the Southern strategy refers to the Republican Party strategy of winning elections in Southern states by exploiting anti–African American racism and fears of lawlessness among Southern white voters and appealing to fears of growing federal power in social and economic matters (generally lumped under the concept of states' rights).

WHO are the big "states rights" folks these days?

You cited these people as your reason for disregarding the effects of the Southern Strategy (quote from your post):

"Let see 26 known dixiecrats 5 governors and 21 senators only 3 became republicans: Strom Thurmond, Jesse Helms and Mills E. Godwind, Jr."

My point was that many other members of the Democratic Party LEFT THAT PARTY and became members of the Republican Party, and those members were not famous, well-known Democrats. You know what I meant.

Interesting that you totally ignored my question regarding which party emphasizes "states rights" the most???

Btw, are there lots of hogs teeth in Manhattan?
