so with that in mind, is there such thing as a realignment? It seems that not all states partisanship tends to go back quite a ways, though with some it is more unpredictable. It seems that you have more semi-realignments but no earthquakes. If anything 1984 looks like somewhat of a realignment. The west coast states started voting more D than the national average (although Carter conceding early might be the reason they voted more R in 1980) and much of the south (which still had a lot of goodwill left for Carter even in 1980) pretty much became lockstep R.
