So just what is your point??
You get satisfaction out of knowing that, once upon a time, your party actualy cared about all Americans, not just older white folks??
While today's Republican Party is full of hatred towards the poor, immigrants, hispanics, women, gays, blacks, etc.
Are you happy with your party calling everyone who disagrees with it socialists, or worse??
That did not help you in the election, where your party was rejected in a huge way.
Democrats picked up seats in both Senate and House. Though the Repubs have a slight majority in the House, the Democrats recieved more total votes for House races than did the Republicans.
The question you should be asking is why your party changed to one of whites only racism, hatred towards minorities of all types, hostility towards women's reproductive rights.
Using data from 50 years ago and more only highlights how far into the swamp your party has gone.
So, basically what you are saying is that the Republiclown Party was ONCE UPON A TIME an actual political party for majorities of Americans.
Not the rump party of racists, anti-gays, anti-abortion, anti-science, creationism believing nitwits that it's become.
You make yourself appear increasingly foolish.
Do you really not know the history of the Democrat Party in the Deep South from the Civil War until the mid 1960s and that this bloc of Democrats were very powerful in thwarting every single piece of civil rights legislation - including the mid 1960s?
Knowledge is power, Lily. You're looking a little limp right now.
