Writer Frederick Douglass (Republican-New York)/Governor Joseph B. Foraker (Republican-Ohio)

vs.

President S. Grover Cleveland (Democrat-New York)/Former Senator Allen G. Thurman (Democrat-Ohio)



Unlikely and unrealistic scenario. In 1888, Frederick Douglass became the first African-American to speak before a major party convention. As well, one delegate cast a vote for him. Let's say, for some reason or another, he wins and becomes a presidential candidate. How's it go? (we're looking specifically for maps here, folks!)

Cleveland wins everything except maybe the deepest Republican states (Vermont, Maine, Michigan?)

How do you think the West would go, which had been traditionally Republican by then, would go?
