The concluding chapter summarizes key findings of the volume and points the way toward areas of future research and analysis of southern politics. It offers some projections about the future of the region, including its potentially key role in the 2020 elections. The discussion covers the many areas in which change is occurring, including changing demographics, changing partisanship, changing politics of race, and changing politics of religion, all leading up to a discussion of the changing politics of the Trump Era. In its final words, the chapter concludes that the direction of U.S. national politics and governing will continue to be driven substantially by what happens in the South.
