Title: Counties that voted for James Cox in 1920 and Charles Hughes in 1916

Manistee County, Michigan could be the only county where Cox topped Wilson. And Cox also put up the best percentage for a Democrat there between Grover Cleveland and FDR.

I don't know how to explain that though.

Yeah, I really am scratching my head on that one. It was at the time a huge logging area, but as for why Manistee would've been so big on Cox I can't say (especially since it's not hugely different demographically from those counties around it).
