    I disagree with the premise.  Out of that list, only Mississippi, South Carolina, Arkansas and Oklahoma are truly red states (voted for Donald Trump in the 2020 election, Republican governors, both houses of state assembly Republican, both US senators Republican).  New Mexico is a truly blue state (voted for Biden in the 2020 election, Democratic governor, both houses of state assembly Democratic, both US senators Democratic).  The rest of those are a mix between Democrats and Republicans.
