    No they didn't like Al Gore's racist father, Al Gore is still democrat. Only one or two democrats changed to the Republican party, the rest of the racist democrats stayed democrat.

Before then Republicans didn't have a prayer of winning a local elections so in order to have some say you registered Democrat, voted for the most conservative Democrat in the primary and then the Republican Presidential Candidate in the General. The Democrat leadership of today is the same as the Democrat leadership of the 1960's, if not overtly racist they were certainly "progressive socialist" and had been since at least Woodrow Wilson
    1968 was George Wallace who came from the Democrat Party and splintered off. Humphrey would have swept the South without Wallace.

    The largest group certainly were swept in with the Moral Majority at the same time as Reagan (1980). It started in 1972 for the Presidency but the Democrats still held on in the Southern state governments.

    Right, Wallace split off in 68 and form the American Independent Party, and after losing returned to the Democratic Party.

    Initially the Moral Majority helped bring Carter into office but he disappointed them terribly.

    Yeah, and then Wallace got shot. What's your point?

    Humphrey would NOT have swept the south. He wasn't a racist.
