Louisiana Democrats Go Under 50 Percent For First Time In Modern History

Pretty significant. The link below references 1957 as a baseline only because that was when records were kept of such things.(which seems strange)

However it's a safe bet ,since after Reconstuction for a period of 90 years one could have a Republican Convention in a street car ,somewhere in the 1870's to 1880 should be seen as the baseline.

As late as 1978, Democrats made up 90 percent of the Louisiana’s registered voters.
