Women Running in Alabama

Significance of State

"Like most southern states, Alabama was a Democratic stronghold . . . through the 1950s. Southern Democrats were always more conservative than their increasingly liberal Northern brethren. . . This dissension in the party generally didn’t impact the final results. However, in 1960, six of the 11 Alabama electors cast their votes for Harry F. Byrd, despite John F. Kennedy winning the state’s popular vote. Alabama largely abandoned the Democrats during the 1960s. The initial shift was largely in response to white conservative voter uneasiness with the civil rights legislation that was passed in the mid-1960s, which was effectively exploited by the Republicans "southern strategy." Republican nominees have won the state by over 20 points since 2004, including Donald Trump's nearly 28% margin in 2016. Alabama has had nine electoral votes since 1972; that may drop to eight after the 2020 election."
