Nixon's Southern Strategy Now Complete

Richard Nixon's Southern Strategy is now complete. There will be no Democratic Senators from the former Confederacy in the new Senate. The House shows a similar picture. There are no black Republican House members and no white Democrat House members from the former CSA.

Because Abraham Lincoln was a Republican, the South was a solid Democratic bastion for 100 years. Then Lyndon Johnson signed the Civil Rights Bill in 1964 and commented, "I've lost the South for a generation." In 1968 Richard Nixon seized the opportunity to welcome the disgruntled, segregationist "Dixiecrats" into the Republican party. The transfer is now complete and unfortunately, the political philosophy hasn't changed.
