Whoops! My mistake, I'll correct that

BTW Lewis is correct about him actually being a Texan at the time but I think it pales in comparison to what Hillary did in the same year.

Another one for curiosities sake:

States without a single electoral-vote-winning Presidential nominee (votes from faithless electors excluded):

AK, CO, CT, DE, FL, HI, ID, MS, MT, NV, NM, ND, OK, OR, RI, UT, VT, WA, WY, DC

States without a single electoral-vote-winning Presidential or Vice-Presidential nominee (votes from faithless electors excluded):

CO, FL, HI, ID, NV, NM, ND, OK, RI, UT, VT, WA, DC

It’s easy to see why these states are absent from the list of home states of Presidential or Vice-Presidential candidates. They are either:

  • too small in population and electoral votes (HI, ID, NM, ND, RI, VT, DC, until recently NV) or,
  • too young as states (HI, NM, OK, UT, ID, ND, WA, CO, much of NV and FL too) or,
  • too conservative for the majority of people (ID, ND, OK, UT) or,
  • too liberal for the majority (HI, RI, VT, WA, DC) or,
  • too polarizing (CO, NV, perhaps FL)

Nevada, Florida and perhaps New Mexico are the only states listed here one might see “breaking through” to producing presidential candidates in the future. Nevada does have, of course, problems with its gambling and resort associations – so does Florida and über-liberal Hawaii.
