The GOP in Alabama hasn’t embraced diversity and has 6 out of 7 congressmen, 2 senators, the governorship, a supermajority in the state legislature, and controls every statewide office.
The Democratic Party in Alabama recently split down the middle between DWLs and blacks and is so broke that it is on the verge of being evicted from its state headquarters. Alabama’s electorate was also more non-White than the American electorate in 2008 and 2012.
Romney and McCain easily won Alabama, but lost lily-White, “Live Free or Die” New Hampshire simply because the majority of Yankees who live there voted for Obama like they did in the rest of New England.
Obama won New England, Iowa, and the Pacific Northwest because of the White vote. He won Michigan and Wisconsin, but lost Arizona and Arkansas because of the White vote. Similarly, he won Florida and Virginia, but lost Mississippi and Louisiana because of the White vote.
What’s the difference between Texas and California? The White vote.
