    The first, Arthur Ravenel, possibly legit that he switched parties due to the southern strategy, but the next, Byrnes, was an ex-politician who was a DINO (never a Republican), as he supported Eisenhower, Nixon, and Goldwater.

    The next, Kirk switched parties in 1960, not because of the "southern strategy," but rather, political ambition, as did Lyons.

    The next, Mesta, switched from Republican to Democrat in 1940.

    Treen, probably legit contention he switched because of "southern strategy," but the next, Jack Cox switched in 1962 because he knew he couldn't win the democratic primary against John Connelly.

    John Martin also switched in 1962 to run against entrenched Democrat Lister Hill, US representative since 1940.

    Ronald Reagan, of course, not southern, so apparently the author of the list only brought him up because they were having trouble finding people.

    Spence, probably legit because he switch because he didn't like the direction of the national Democratic party.

    So what, out of the first 10, only 3 support your contention?

    Add to that, out of 10s of 1000s of southern politicians, you only found these few, for the most part, minor pols, or state representatives, kinda shoots down your theory, wot?
    My theory? Did you even bother to read the question to which I was responding?

    Thanks for catching that one error in the list though. Someone wasn't paying attention. Still though, one out of 30 something isn't bad.

    Lot of people just couldn't abide Truman's integration of the military, or the national democratic party smothering the Dixiecrats for attempting to disrupt the election.

    Mr. Stan,

    Perhaps you should read the subject of the debate. Unless, of course, you are admitting to a red herring.

    The subject is that the Republican "southern strategy" was to turn Dixirats into Republicans. Your list showed that for the most part, most of those cited switched parties for other reasons.

    Or trying to push opinion pieces as though they are facts, like here.
    Then prove the link false. You should not believe the democrat lies
