One-Party States

Carroll Andrew Morse

John Fund documented in yesterday's Opinionjournal, that more and more states are tending towards one-party rule at the state level.

This is an intersting trend. If you believe what people say about voting for "the best candidate" instead of party affiliation, you would expect, at the local level, less dominance by any single party, because at the local level, voters have more of a chance to actually get to know their candidates.
