Tantamount to election

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

"Tantamount to election" is a phrase describing the situation in which one political party dominates the demographics of a voting district to such a degree that the candidate winning the nomination of that party for a race (whether by primary or another method) will be virtually assured of winning the general election. The phrase "safe seat" (referring to the general election) is commonly used to describe such a district.

The phrase is most commonly used in the United States, often describing the Solid South, where for decades the Republican Party was so weak or nonexistent that the general elections were mere formalities, the election having effectively been decided within the Democratic Party.[1] For example, the state of Alabama, which was formerly heavily Democratic, did not have a Republican governor or lieutenant governor between 1874 and 1987. Conversely, no Democrat served as governor of Vermont between 1854 and 1963. However, after the Republicans took control of the South in the 1970s, most Southern states have become overwhelmingly Republican at both the federal and state levels. In almost all rural, white-majority congressional districts in the South, winning the Republican primary is now considered tantamount to election.[citation needed] For Democrats, the same can be said of many urban districts around the country, particularly those with a large minority population.[citation needed]
