The Cultural Politics of Dan Quayle and Mike Pence

The Gallup polling organization classifies Indiana as a “pink” state, rather than a “red” state, meaning it leans Republican but is not solidly in the GOP column. After all, in recent years Indiana has sent Democrats like Evan Bayh and Joe Donnelly to the United States Senate. From1989 through 2004, the state had a succession of Democratic governors. And in the 2008 presidential election, the state was carried by Barack Obama. As the headline on a Boston Globe political story put it during the 2016 presidential primaries, “Indiana is not the solid red state everyone thinks it is.”
