    Yet these polls come to a different results showing again that polls can be provided to support whatever position one wants. One thing that never changes however are non partisan actual results, you know those that you refuse to acknowledge?

    Isn't it amazing that two absolutely stupid individuals, Reagan and Bush, were able to fool so many Americans including Democrats that controlled Congress?

    It is always the family that see the sign's first, but if the family and his advisor's hid this fact from the rest of the world... then damn.. Why on earth if they knew, did they allow him to run for a second term? Who ran the country for the whole of Reagan's second term then?

    Yes... I agree - it's no longer the party of desegregation, racism, Storm Thurmond, white pride. Those Democrats became Republicans.

    Or they stayed in the Democrat party and had their sins absolved because of a D in front of their name *Robert Byrd.* The Republican party is not a party of racism or racist principals.

    Figured that is how you would see it, I see it as there is no room in the Democrat Party today for Conservatives. Look at your paycheck, then look at the national debt and tell me liberalism works? Oh, wait, it does work for the liberal elite, big govt. bureaucrats while destroying the average American. You see, there is only one ideology today that really doesn't care how much YOU make and that ISN'T the Democrat Party.

    Oh I get it, somebody who makes a few mistakes in their youth and spends 60 years trying to make up for it is a racist. However the Republican party which absorbed all the Democrat racists who left as a result of the 1964 civil rights movement is not racist at all. Where does the right wing dishonesty on this topic end? How can a party which creates what is called the Southern Strategy not be a party of racism or racist principles? Do you know why the Republican party is so popular with whites? I'll give you a clue:

    Nixon's "Southern Strategy" and Forces Against Brown | Journal of Negro Education, The | Find Articles at BNET

    President Richard Nixon reacted to the 1971 Court decision in Swann v. CharlotteMecklenburg School District, a school desegregation case that approved the use of race to assign students to schools by the use of busing, by instructing the U. S. Justice Department to draft a constitutional amendment to nullify the Court's decision (Kruger, 1975). In 1984, President Ronald Reagan, campaigning for reelection in Charlotte, North Carolina (the site of the 1971 Swann Court decision), criticized the Democrats for their support of "busing that takes innocent children out of the neighborhood school and makes them pawns in a social experiment that nobody wants" (Gillard, 1988, p. xv). Reagan continued the "Southern Strategy" began by President Richard Nixon in order to win White southern votes (Carter, 2000).\

    ...

    At the national level, Richard Nixon ordered his Attorney General to draft a constitutional amendment to replace the 14th Amendment, and ordered the Attorney General and other government agencies not to enforce the Brown decree as recommended in the Civil Rights Act of 1964. In the Civil Rights Act of 1964, Congress reenacted all the laws passed during Reconstruction (Motley, 1988). The 1964 Civil Rights Act authorized the U.S. Attorney General to bring legal action against school systems practicing school segregation and to assume the costs of these legal cases. Nixon ordered a slow down of such cases, if not an absolute halt to such actions; and a halt to the collection of racial data on school enrollment by the U.S. Department of Education. His opposition to Brown formed the basics of his party's "Southern Strategy" to win White votes in the South.


    ...

    The genesis of the school-choice movement or "Southern Strategy" in education was with Brown that declared state-supported school segregation unconstitutional (Levin, 1999). Brown motivated school systems, first in the southern schools and later in northern schools, which were opposed to school desegregation to experiment with school choice as opposition to the racial integration of public schools. The backlash against school desegregation increased after the passage of the 1964 Civil Rights Law that gave the U.S. Justice Department the authority and resources to seek through the federal courts compliance with Brown. School desegregation in the South and race riots in urban centers in the North combined to give the Republican Party a powerful weapon to attract White conservative voters using the rhetoric of school "choice."
    You're being VERY naive if you don't think the modern day Republican Party is filled with the racists who made up the Democrat Party 20-30-40 years ago.

    However, I welcome you to refute what are facts.

    Reagan won re-election by taking 49-50 states in 1984. Seems that you continue to live in the past while ignoring the actual history of the past. What are facts is this country is a Center-Right country, not a left country that today's liberal party wants us to believe. They showed that by electing Obama in 2008 with 52% of the vote believing him to be closer to the center. In 2010 Obama lost 10% of his base and was shellacked in the midterm. Those are the facts that matter now what happened decades ago.
