As in the title. Describe a voter who went for Alf Landon in 1936 but Lyndon Johnson in 1964. This shouldn't be that hard.

Many voters in Vermont and Maine and Northeast in general who were fiscally conservative but socially moderate or liberal who didn't care for Goldwater or what was going in the South at that time.

Given just how much Northeastern and New England states swung, there had to have been some in those states. It couldn't all be attributed to voters dying/new ones coming of age/in- and out-migration.

A moderate, progressive Republican who was young in 1936.  Probably a Republican from Maine, or Vermont.

Alf Landon was NOT a mossback conservative; he was a moderately progressive Republican.  His legacy is reflected in his daughter, moderate Republican Nancy Landon Kassebaum, an FF if there ever was one.
