weakness, a southern observer re-

why long-term history may be on
the southern Republicans' side in
"Political Issues and Business in
1964," a new publication by the
i University's Foundation for Re-
search on Human Behavior.
Prof. Prothro says surveys have
revealed that a little over 60 per
cent of southern white respond-
ents think of themselves as Demo-
crats, compared to about 14 per
cent who think of themselves as
Southern Negroes show equal
disdain for the party of Lincoln
and Earl Warren, he adds. Only
about 10 per cent of voting age
Negroes call themselves strong or
weak Republicans, while 51 per
cent consider themselves to be
Almost Identical
Among persons who have some
interest in politics, Prof. Prothro
says, "The distribution of party
identification within the two races
is virtually identical; 73 per cent
of the whites and" 75 per cent of
the Negroes aligning themselves
somewhere on the Democratic side
of the spectrum.
"This consensus is amazing, even
to those hardened to the incon-
sictencies of American politics. The
sharpest and most divisive conflict
in American politics exists between
these same southern Negroes and
whites. Seventy-three per cent of
the white 'strong' Democrats say
they believe in the strict segre-
gation of the races, while 77 per
cent of the Negro strong Demo-
crats favor integration."
This "massive political misce-
genation" cannot be accounted for
entirely on the basis of "bread-
and-butter" social welfare issues,
Prof. Prothro says.,
Dems Are Conservative
"Among southern whites, there
is a slight tendency for Demo-
crats to be more conservative on
questions of social welfare and
government activities than those
who identify with the Republican
party," he explains.
The author points out that both
races have essentially favorable at-
titudes toward the Democratic par-
ty. Its partisans believe the party
is better for the working man and
that "conditions are good" un-

der its leadership. The most' com-
mon negative element in the Dem-
ocratic image held by white south-
erners is that it is "too good to
Negroes," a view held by nearly
one white voter in ten
The party of Lincoln is com-
monly seen as the party of de-
pression, big business favoritism,
and mistreatment of workers, Prof.
Prothro writes.;
The party identification of
southernors has changed little re-
cently, he explains, and the short-!
range trend seems to favor the
Democratic party:
"Hhe Democratic bias of Ne-
groes is overwhelming, and it,
seems unlikely that many of them
can be shifted permanently to the,
Republican column. As more
southern Negroes vote in the fu-
ture, they can be expected to swell7
the Democratic ranks under all but,
the most unusual circumstances.
"But it is also a fact that the
Negroes are leaving the South . . .

and it is still generally true that
when a Negro leaves the South, a
Democrat leaves the South."
Furthermore, Prof. Prothro adds
urbanization and suburbanization
will continue along with whitb em-
igration; factors which will tend
to equalize the strongly Demo-
cratic rural areas.
Collegians Republican? I
"A-college education is associat-
ed with relatively pro-Republican
images, and the proportion of
southern whites attending college
is on the increase," the southern
analyst points out. "Southerners
who think of themselves as be-
longing to the middle class are
much less Democratic in their
sentiments than those who think
of themselves as belonging to the
working class; it is fairly safe to
assume that an increasing propor-
tion of southerners, as well'as oth-
er Americans, will think of them-
selves as middle class in the future.
"All things considered, then, the
thrust of history seems to be on

the Republicans' side," Prof. Pro-
thro declares.
This can be a very slow proc-
ess, and if party realignmentis to
come to the Soulth more suddenly
the Negro problem will probably
serve as the catalyst, he concludes.
