Republicans were always mostly in the Northern states ever since the Civil war. Also republicans favored a strong central government, hence Abraham Lincoln using the most federal power in history. The democratic party was always mostly in the southern states ever since the civil war because many Democrats supported slavery which was mostly in the South. Up unitl 1976 did democrats start to be mostly in the northern states and republicans in the southern states like it is today. They basically flip flopped Demographics and ideas over 150 years.

Though the demographics have changed republicans have always had a conservative base. Conservatives lost power in the Democratic party during the 1960s. They struggled to survive during the next few decades, many of them switching to Republicans along the way. Eventually with both Obama's victories unfortunately the conservative democrats are now barely existent, everyone left has now switched party affiliation.
