Excellent thought provoking page. Nominate for promotion.

Great post! But I think it’s way more than race and region even though those two demographic categories are undeniably important to understanding those voters.

The article mentioned religion very briefly, and I think the map is interesting in the respect that it could be showing the highest concentrations of copies of the novel _Left Behind_ or Kurt Cameron fan clubs. The areas highlighted are the same places where certain types of “fundamentalist” Christian churches seems to have the most sway. Most of these places are predominantly white, but a large smear of them are not in the South.

But I’m not denying that whiteness and regional attitudes that are negative toward “big government” play a big role too. Very thought provoking!

For those predicting a near term collapse of the Southern White voting bloc, I have to disagree. I am more pessimistic than most it may seem when it comes to White America’s disregard and outward contempt for pretty much the entire world. I grew up in this mindset and know firsthand how entrenched it is throughout entire families, states, and voting districts. IMO this voting bloc will be very powerful and effectively get what they want policy wise for decades to come.

White America constitutes about 2%-3% of the entire world population. If your mindset is completely polarized and you are reflexively contemptuous of 98% of the world, your overall future doesn’t seem so bright to me. Added to the top of this is the outright contempt the Southernization of America has on the appreciation of hard Science and the elevation of wacko-psuedo-science and conspiracy theories… very discouraging.
