errr....the South was lost to the Democrats long before that.

How Democratic was the "Solid South". Pretty freaking Democratic. Here's the 1956 Election results. Those red states -- they're voting for Adlai Stevenson over the reelection of Dwight David Eisenhower.




Fast forward 8 years later (post Civil Rights Act) and the election of 1964, where LBJ (a southerner from Texas) trounces arch-conservative Republican Barry Goldwater.



Don't ask me why red is Democrat and blue is Republican, btw...


Anyway, you can look at most election maps and see the same thing pre/post Civil Rights Act. Solid South is pretty solidly Democrat pre-CRA, and solidly Republican post-CRA.
