    Republicans Have Won Every November 6th Presidential Election Since 1860

    Here's one more historical curiosity to observe this election cycle. Since election day was standardized in 1845 there have been 6 presidential elections held on November 6th and Republicans have won all six. That means next Tuesday, the 7th Presidential election held on this date, will either break or uphold a streak that began in 1860 with the election of Abraham Lincoln.

    Wow, so that will make this coming November 6 an even greater disappointment.

    In the mid 60's, conservatives fled the Democratic Party and swelled the ranks of the Republican Party, which to this day, remains 90% white.

    White men have won Presidential elections every election day until 2008............ there's always a first time, maybe there's another historic moment coming up for November 6th. Man y'all are grasping at straws! I could hear the desperation coming from limbaugh, hannity, and the lies coming from that PUTZ dick morris. :lol:

    Sure it does. Just calling a party Republican or Democrat doesn't make it liberal or conservative historically.
