Abstract:

Disagreement within the Democratic Party over a pro-civil rights plank on its 1948 national platform led some of the Southern members to leave and form the States' Rights Democratic Party. The "Dixiecrats", as the party's members were known, supported segregation and believed that the federal government was encroaching on the sovereignty of the individual states. The Dixiecrat presidential and vice presidential candidates, Strom Thurmond and Fielding Wright, respectively, won 39 electoral votes, but only won the four states (Alabama, Mississippi, South Carolina, and Louisiana) where they were able to manipulate the election and keep President Harry S. Truman's name off of the ballot.
