New England = Republican Stronghold. South = Democratic Dominion. These associations are so contrary to our modern-day perspectives, but not 80 years ago, they were age-old truths. With the liberalization of the Democratic party in the 60s, namely, its civil rights advocacy, the South, and later, Midwest, became quickly disillusioned with their Democrats. Meanwhile, the rest warmed up to them.
