I think you're painting a broad brush stroke on a very complicated subject. Yes, many southern Democrats switched to the Republican Party in the 1960's. And yes, many moderate Republicans crossed parties and joined the Democrats. But anyone who loves to study American history knows that those kind of crossovers have happened throughout the past two centuries.


I think it's also important to remember that the Democratic Party used to be the party of the *white* working man. They really didn't care much about anyone else. The "glory days" of the 1930's, 40's, and 50's Democratic Party really only worked for white people while completely ignoring women and minorities. It was also before the technological revolution that is only going to continue moving forward.


Some Democrats just can't bring themselves to admit that fact. Certain manufacturing jobs are not going to come back. That's just a fact. Certain well paying union jobs are not going to come back. That is also a fact.
