    I'd say even less then that. Alaska won't be a Republican stronghold for long. I wouldn't even consider it as such since Ted Stevens just lost.

    Utah I'd put under as really the only Conservative state in the U.S and the biggest one. In fact, they are the only state to also allow guns on college campus among several other things.

    Interesting link under that:

    EDIT: I'm also pretty sure that Obama made a dent in Wyoming this election season.

    calm down.

    The GOP is always going to be competitive in at least a couple dozen states.

    The ones where a plurality want to outlaw abortion, and teach creation science. Those flat earthers are going to be around for decades.

    This all goes in cycles, it's not a permanent state of affairs.

    After 2004 the map was more red then blue, it will change back and forth, and most of you should hope it does, one party rule means dictatorship.

    I find threads like this pretty funny. It amazes me how the Liberals believe the conservative movement and the Republican Party is dead because Obama won 53% of the vote. The same thing was being said after Carter won in 76.

    The GOP should better not elect Palin as a candidate or they re dead next time. Republicans were already running away from the GOP now, when she was only VP pick.

    The thing is the CURRENT republican party is dead. You guys finnally got just what you wanted. Entire control of the country. You guys then set out to prove your party was right about its plans for the US. You set them in place( massive tax cuts , war for wars sake, Deregulation, not inforcing the laws on the books either) and much to your partys chagrin it turned out just like us liberals had always told you it would. A TOTAL DISASTOR!


    The Republican party will re emerge in a decade or two with completetly different ideas and maybe they will even HELP the country for a change. I look forward to that day.
