Converted from Democrat to GOP in tide of 1994
In political terms, the Republican tide of 1994 did not ebb the following year. Two senators, Richard Shelby (AL) and Ben Nighthorse Campbell (CO), and one representative, Nathan Deal (GA), made it 78 local, state, and federal official who have become
Republicans since Bill Clinton was elected president. The political map looks like a reversal of the map from New Deal days. The 104th Congress is the first since Reconstruction with a Republican majority of the 125 seats in the once-Solid South.

Whatís an adherent? The most common definition used in broad compilations of statistical data is somebody who claims to belong to or worship in a religion. This is the self-identification method of determining who is an adherent of what religion, and it is the method used in most national surveys and polls.
Such factors as religious service attendance, belief, practice, familiarity with doctrine, belief in certain creeds, etc., may be important to sociologists, religious leaders, and others. But these are measures of religiosity and are usually not used academically to define a personís membership in a particular religion. It is important to recognize there are various levels of adherence, or membership within religious traditions or religious bodies. Thereís no single definition, and sources of adherent statistics do not always make it clear what definition they are using.
