I think it's A, but a few people on other posts said they thought it was C so I'm not sure.

A; by attracting conservative Southern voters to the Republican Party" is the best option from the list, but it should be noted that this got its start in other places as well.

Thank you! I figured it was A because in my textbook it says "Nixon appealed to what he called the "silent majority" of Americans who were not actively protesting or taking part in the cultural changes of the era. He also strove to appeal to conservative Southern voters who had traditionally been Democrats. These efforts, combined with a strong showing by third-party candidate George Wallace in the South, helped carry Nixon to victory."
