Busting the Dixiecrat myth
Advertisements [?]
The media wants us to believe that there are 1000's of Zel Millers living across North Florida, who voted for Bush, but otherwise usually vote Democratic.

However, this myth is not necessarily based in reality. A look at the counties that are in the Heart of Florida's Dixieland, you will see actually voted for KERRY!

So next time someone claims Bush won Florida because of the Dixiecrats, here's evidence that they didn't. Besides even if they all did vote for Bush, there isn't enough of them to have given this state to Bush. Not with his big lose in the Hispanic vote.


Gadsden
6,253/Bush
14,629/Kerry

Jefferson
3,298/Bush
4,134/Kerry

Leon
51,594/Bush
83,830/Kerry

plus Madison was very close

Madison
4,196/Bush
4,048/Kerry

All four counties are in North Central FL on the FL/GA border.
