    Civil Rights Act of 1964 - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    The original House version:

    Southern Democrats: 7–87 (7–93%)
    Southern Republicans: 0–10 (0–100%)

    Northern Democrats: 145–9 (94–6%)
    Northern Republicans: 138–24 (85–15%)

    The Senate version:

    Southern Democrats: 1–20 (5–95%) (only Ralph Yarborough of Texas voted in favor)
    Southern Republicans: 0–1 (0–100%) (John Tower of Texas)
    Northern Democrats: 45–1 (98–2%) (only Robert Byrd of West Virginia voted against)
    Northern Republicans: 27–5 (84–16%)
    On a whim I added the numbers up.

    In the House version:
    Total members: 258 democrat, 172 republican
    For: 152 democrats, 138 republicans
    Opposed: 106 democrats, 34 republicans.

    Senate version:
    Total members: 67 democrat, 33 republicans
    For: 46 democrats, 27 republicans.
    Opposed: 21 democrats, 6 republicans.

    It appears that in neither vote did more republicans vote for the bill than democrats, although it would appear that you COULD claim a higher percentage of republicans voted for rather than against.
    But most of that is due to the democrats being stronger in the southern states, as you say.

    Which was largely a product of post-Civil War resentment of the GOP.

    Re: Islam convert shot dead after ax attack on NYPD cops

    Am I in the wrong thread? I could have sworn that this thread was about the Islamic convert wielding a hatchet and going after NY cops....Or has it been decided by libs that there is nothing to see here move along....Kind of like Ebola....

    The majority of people who voted for CRA'64 were Democrats in both the House & Senate. Don't play this game, Grant. You'll lose.
    No, I don't think so. Al Sharpton Gets Civil Rights History Wrong - Katie Pavlich

    Eisenhower enforced a SCOTUS ruling against his own personal feelings. Nothing wrong with that, admirable really.
    But his feelings weren't based on race. If you insist on looking for heroic Democrats regarding race you could try Harry Truman and his desegregation of the military. The rest? Not so much.

    It was the Democrats who were fighting for the freedom of slaves then? Okay, have it your way.
