Let's get the word out!
All that the article seems to point out was that the Democrats' "Solid South" didn't flip overnight, which is obvious, and I've never seen anyone assert anything to the contrary. Of course some people who had voted Democrat their whole lives were reluctant to switch parties. But the change in the patterns of the electoral map could hardly be more stark, sudden, or complete in its transformation.
But that wasn't enough to lose the South to Democrats immediately, who after all had much better campaign and political infrastructure established there going back generations. So it's not true that the '64 Civil Rights Act and Nixon's Southern Strategy alone flipped the South, but it finished what already began decades earlier. And it was always about race.
Next you're going to deny that the Civil War was really about Slavery, right?
You're looking at studies that use income as an input to determine happiness, so yeah, it's going to be correlated heavily with income.
If you want to find out how happy someone is, you should simply ask them. It's impossible to infer someone's happiness level by looking at their income, obesity rate, or other metrics. There are plenty of happy poor people and tons of miserable rich ones.
Here's a quiz about the 10 Happiest States based on actual survey data from 1.3 million people.
Granted, even by this metric Mississippi isn't that poor. It has roughly the same value as Portugal.
Think of all them execs
I was super surprised to see Kentucky and Arkansas on here instead of Michigan and Deleware, seriously
