    Watching this map unfold over nearly 200 years, I remember what Lyndon Johnson said after the Civil Rights Bill was passed in the mid 1960s. "We have lost the south for a generation." He was right, the Democrats have done poorly in the deep south ever since (Clinton did win a couple of states). Before that the Republicans could not get a foothold there.

    What's also interesting and I was unaware is that the West had a long history of voting Republican.
    It's also been a long time since ANY third party had a shot at the White House.
