US Grammar of the word 'president'
The USA always capitalizes President, Presidency, etc in reference to history, it is different from European conventions for several reasons related to Bicameralism.--Andrewstewart1 (talk) 21:27, 13 May 2013 (UTC)

There's a commie in the closet…
There are many parallels to Nixon's first term and Trump. The atmosphere is eerily similar with a media that rabidly hates Trump and a whacked out leftist party that can't get it's act together with a sane candidate to challenge. As hated as Nixon and Trump are, Nixon unraveled the Gordian knot that led the US into two unwinnable wars with China (Korea and Vietnam) by making China a trading partner, and Trump is unraveling the Gordian knot of allowing China to use nuclear blackmail via it's proxy North Korea to rape us in trade deals.
Anyway, back to the point. Nixon won 49 states, 63% of the vote, with a full one third (33%) of Democrats cause the DNC was taken over by communists. However, Nixon's victory never translated into any Republican party gains. Less than two years later Nixon could not muster 34 Republican Senators to save his ass in an impeachment trial. Only one Democrat Senator who voted against the 1964 Civil Rights Act switched parties, the rest all remained Democrats. Segregationist Sam Ervin became a Democrat hero for chairing the Watergate hearings, voting against Civil Rights legislation, signing the cp:Southern Manifest, and voting with Biden to end busing. Republicans were wiped out in the 1974 Midterms, and lost to a Southerner in 1976.
In the 1978 Midterms, Southern Evangelical Christians starting voting Republican over the Roe v. Wade issue, cause Carter, the Southern Evangelical Christian, did nothing to stop abortion. Desegregation was not an issue, cause Biden had already stopped it 1975, keeping the racist voters in the Democrat party.
The movement of Democrat voters to the GOP in 1972 was over the far left anti-war takeover of the Democratic party, not race. Roe became in issue in 1973. Democrats returned home in 1974, the Biden Amendment (really the Helms Amendment with Biden's name on it) passed in 1975 repealing sections of the 1964 Civil Rights Act that denied education funding to schools that defied court ordered desegregation and busing. Southern Democrat Moral Majority types voted for Carter in 1976, and defected to the GOP between 1978 and 1988 over abortion and the budding gay rights movement as a civil rights issue, not race.
So your Southern Strategy conspiracy theory remains what it always has been - bullshit - which has hidden the racism of Joe Biden and other Democrat scumbags for decades. Educated blacks have always understood this very well - largely the result of funding for Black History programs and Black History Month that grew out of the Great Society. nobsI'm all yea'res 07:06, 5 July 2019 (UTC)
