This chapter offer explanations for the shifting allegiances documented in the previous chapter. Its close-grained study of southern evangelicals who moved to points farther west shows how the spread of a distinctly southern religious flavor also left in its wake a distinctly southern tone for politics. The chapter also provides indispensable deep background for the political proclivities of white evangelicals. To explore more deeply how southern preachers and plain folk southernized American religion and politics, the discussion moves incrementally from experiences of the southern diaspora during the 1940s through its politicization in the 1950s and 1960s to its regional and national impact on the Republican party's southern strategy in the 1970s.
