The "Solid" South Is Changing

Posted on the 14 April 2018 by Jobsanger

For the past few decades, pundits have talked about the "Solid South". Political wisdom has said the South is solidly Republican, evangelical, and socially conservative. But the South is changing, and it's becoming more like the rest of the country.
This is verified by a recent NBC News / SurveyMonkey Poll. Between March 12th and March 25th, 15,238 people were surveyed in the nation as a whole, and 4,132 people were questioned in 11 Southern states (Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, and Virginia). The margin of error for the nation is 1.1 points, and for the South is 2.4 points.
Note that the opinions of people across the South have become much closer to the views of other Americans -- both politically and socially.
