TX isn't really part of the South. It is the West. Your cross-section of the south is no more valid than my cross-section of the Mid-West.

"Why Is The US Electorate So Evenly Divided?"

Because the system works.

I can't speak for Iowa, but Missouri was a slave state.

You may recall that during the recent Unpleasantness Between the States, Confederate Missourians under Quantrill mass-murdered men and boys in Lawrence, Kansas...(shades of Ratko Mladić in Srebrenica).

I notice also that Missouri is a red state, as are all the states that formed the Confederacy.

Texas has an historic relationship with the South that stretches back to its inception. After all, Texas was a part of the Confederacy.

West Texas is like the Southwest. The Panhandle is like the MidWest.
East Texas is like the South. One of the reasons for the Texas fight for independence was because the new settlers were bringing in slaves which was against Mexican law.

Limited?? What more would you need from me to show I know of what I write?

[[Your posts reek of your own prejudices which, sadly, you don't even recognize. ]]

What are those prejudices I don't even recognize?

So we can look forward to the time when that condition exists; but, what about now and the last 50 years?

You're the one who brought up Missouri.

grumbler, So you really think there's no difference amongst the candidates. You're not in the least bit discerning. But, that is a trait I've noticed in most wingers.

Maybe it's time to take the offer of several world leaders who think the US needs poll watchers. One has to admit, many election outcomes appear very strange. Politicians cheat everywhere else, why not the vote? How else would some of those scumbags be elected?
