I am a political independent, and when I see a graph like this, I have to wonder: Was this a shift away from the GOP, or towards the Dems, or simply a repudiation of W. ?
I don’t pretend to know — but the map sure implies a major change. Was it a one off, or a major, Reagan-like realignment.
Zell Miller was right — sort of
