In 1952 the United States of America was soundly set in a red majority of Republican states and counties, while the deep south voted steadfastly democratic. The map below showing voting results by political party of the 1952 presidential elections gives us an amazing view at the former core voting demographics of the nation. 60 years later the USA “left coast” votes democratic, as do most of the New England and Great Lakes region states.  Democratic majorities in the deep south are shrinking while they are simultaneously expanding in Colorado and New Mexico.
