Paula Deen could win there. She has all the right stuff to win in the South.

In a word: no.

Much of the South doesn’t even want to be American anymore because it’s too liberal and secular. Why would they want anything to do with the most liberal and secular party in the States?

Frankly, no since cultural issues go a long way and the GOP and right has done a great job of convincing poor conservative white southerners that gay marriage and abortion rights are more damaging to them and their way of life than lax regulations, tax policy that favors the very wealthy, etc.

The deep South? No. You can’t win everywhere. We can however, take places like VA, NC, and maybe work on other bordering states.

Let the GOP have small, rural states. Once Texas goes blue in about a decade, the GOP will be dead nationally until it moves back toward the center.

I joke of course, but when I am subject to some wingnut spitting about illegals and border fences I tell him that I want a border fence too.

On the Mason-Dixon line.

I’m in GA, and I think we can turn the state blue within five years. Pres. Obama received @ 47% of the vote in GA in 2008 and 2012. We can work with this. Since I’m now retired, I plan to work with my city’s local Democratic Party to register voters. If we can get people to register to vote and especially, get them to the polls, we can give republicans a run for their money here. There’s also a lot of apathy here when it comes to government and voting, and we will definitely have to work on this. I’m going to also suggest to State Democratic Party officials that they need to stay in constant contact with all local DPs and keep encouraging them to focus on registering voters and getting out the vote. I shudder at the idea of having Paul Broun or Phil Gingrey as our new senator. So far, we have only one candidate who is willing to run as a dem for Saxby Chambliss’ seat. We have a lot of work to do, but I do believe we’re up to the task.

re: #7 majii

Not to mention, the arithmetic on the vote margins in the region is really good. It would take but a fraction of the current undocumented migrants be legalized and spreading to this area to cause a number of these states to flip. Georgia is one, but there are a few others.

Those being South Carolina, Mississippi, Louisiana, and Missouri. All had Obama over 40% in 2012. Hell, use the same strategy, and you could conceivably get a few Great Plains states as well.
