1.865% of American Voters
Try, try again to secure the support of Civil War Recreationists, but these Swing Voters are a sensitive Demographic, prone to disengagement and disenfranchisement from the political process if they don’t get their way.1
Generally, Civil War Recreationists can be characterized as conservative in their political ideology. The concept of “change” makes Civil War Recreationists very uncomfortable, whether it be Social Security reform or that “unfortunate” Thirteenth Amendment.
Despite this fear of change, Presidential Candidates are making an effort in 2008 to preserve the union between Civil War Recreationists and the voting booth.
Long before Civil War Recreationists dedicated their weekends to overindulging in Dixie beer, stuffing themselves into costume shop Grey Sack Coats and glorifying the bloodiest conflict in our country’s history, there was another Swing Voter Demographic that shaped the history of this country in the 19th Century, known as Civil War Creationists.2
Scholars refer to Civil War Creationists as the original Swing Voters in American Politics, as they were able to swing out of the Union altogether! Even after Civil War Creationists were forcibly reintegrated into the American Political Process, they have remained a powerful voting block throughout the 20th Century.3
In 2008, Civil War Recreationists will play an important role in the Presidential Election, particularly in the South, where this demographic is confederated.
