Ross Perot won a bunch of counties in 1992.

So did Wallace and Strom.

T. Coleman Andrews won two counties in 1956.

The Texas Regulars won a county.

The Prohibition party candidate won a high percentage in one Florida county in 1924.

Any other odd third-party showings in counties?

TR in 1912 and there was a party in 1892, or around then, that did pretty darn good.

Probably the Populists, who swept the mountain west with a economically conservative democrat nominee.

The socialists and communists did very well in Alatchua County, Florida, one year due to a ballot error.

In 1972 in a county Arizona there was an error where a good number of people voted for the Socialist Labor nominee and George McGovern. What a mess! Surprise

Not as much economically conservative as they where paranoid of New York, Pennsylvania, and all the other big states with big cities.

The Populist programme of 1892 was a socialist programme.

Perot didn't really win too many counties, but he received a much higher chunk of the popular vote than Wallace or Thurmond.

Without debate, the strongest third party candidate was Theodore Roosevelt in 1912.

Wallace, Thurmond, Perot. LaFollete as a progressive in 1924. Weaver as a populst in 1892. Bell had a good showing in 1860, but almost all the counties he won were won, by the same margin, but fillmore in 1856. Fillmore in 1856 did well too, but almost all the counties he won were won, by the same margin, by the whigs. Argubally Bell was the last whig. The Anti-Masonics did well in 1832. In the first election where people voted widley, there were four major candidates, Crawford and Clay being the 2 smaller ones. but the best showing was T.Roosevelt as a progressive in 1912, who finished second in both popular vote, and electoral vote, buring his former vice president, and current sitting president, Taft.

No I mean the Democratic nominee was economically conservative, as in Grover Cleveland; especially after his first term.
