  • Republicans have not won the popular vote in 7 of the last 8 presidential elects.
  • Government welfare in the form of farm subsidies which were first introduced in 1933 by FDR are now at an all-time high in the farm-belt red states.
  • GDP has grown on average 1.6 times faster under Democratic administrations
  • Democrats have supported Voting Rights legislation, the ERA, Labor Unions, and Roe v. Wade, each of which has been opposed by Republicans at all levels of government.
