    Lyndon Johnson signing the Civil Rights Act in 1964 marks the exact moment that southern Democrats switched parties to form the southern wing of the GOP....a group that did not embrace civil rights (some to this day). 

    Johnson was spot on when he famously said of his Democratic party: "We have lost the South for a generation."

    It was the southern Democrats who were the party of slavery and, later, segregation. It was George Wallace, not John Tower, who stood in the southern schoolhouse door to block desegregation! The vast majority of Congressional GOP voted FOR the Civil Rights of 1964-65. The vast majority of those opposed to those acts were southern Democrats. Southern Democrats led to infamous filibuster of the 1964 Civil Rights Act.

     The gradual realignment of the South had been going for nearly forty years by 1964, and continued at a glacial pace after that. The scales ultimately tipped toward the Republicans as a younger generation of Southerners embraced Republicanism.

    In 1952, Eisenhower carried three Southern states. In 1956, he carried five, including deep Southern states like Louisiana. Eisenhower came 15,000 votes in North Carolina from carrying a majority of the Southern states; he managed to carry a majority of the South's popular vote. And the days of Republicans receiving 5 percent of the vote in Deep Southern states were by then over. Eisenhower received at least one-third of the vote in every state in the Old Confederacy.

    The same is true for Nixon in 1960, when the pro-Civil Rights Nixon, who, as Kornacki observes, was representing an Administration that enforced Brown v. Board, carried Virginia, Tennessee and Florida. Texas, North Carolina and South Carolina were all decided by five points or less. Without LBJ as the Veep candidate, Nixon may well have carried those states - indeed Republicans picked up their first elected Southern Senate seat in history in a 1960 special election shortly after the election.

    Can your head be any deeper in the sand?  You got the racist vote in 1964, and have sold your souls to hold onto it for the past fifty years.  Now you're crying like a b1tch anytime anybody points out the obvious.  Take a look at the 1964 presidential Election results.  Goldwater was from AZ, BTW ...

    So those states voting for the first Republican Presidential candidate since Ulysses S Grant had absolutely nothing to do with the Civil Rights Act of 1964?  Stick your head in a little further in the sand - when your hair feels slick, it's time to drill baby drill.
