      for 1996?    Many bible-belt states which are usually reliable red states went for Clinton - including Louisiana, Kentucky, Missouri, West Virginia, Arkansas and Tennessee.    A few of those states were only won by a point or two.  DOMA was very much an issue in those states and Clinton campaigned in the south partly on that issue.

      Arkansas and maybe Tennessee can be excused for going Dem that year, but note that Gore lost Tennessee the next time.
