I actually found this site by accident, but it's pretty sweet!

county maps 1856-present!

So what if it's in french?

That's neat. I wonder if Dave has any plans to extend the site to cover county results for really old elections.

Wow! This officially makes it more informative than Dave's site. I wonder if Dave could get the data from them Smiley

They have the same Bush / Kerry vote totals, except that they seem to have rounded to the nearest 1000.

I thought they didn't have a popular vote in Colorado in 1876.

The 1856-->1860 suggests that the Constitutional Union party was the true successor to the Whigs.

Badly translated version.

I finally got around to making these. Here's 1920. It's presently without Oklahoma, Missouri, Louisiana, Kentucky, Tennessee, and North Carolina; I'll be updating it until it's finished. Here's 1936; it's missing Arkansas and Kentucky, but again, it will get updated.

While we're at it, here's 1924 (missing Iowa and Kentucky), 1928 (missing Tennessee and Virginia), and 1932 (missing Kentucky).

Incredible! Harding won almost every non-confederate county in the country.

Roosevelt looks like he did even better. Why did he do so comparatively poorly in his native New York and the Northeast in general? Was the New Deal particularly unpopular there?

Did any of the two win more counties than Nixon in 1972? 1936 must have been the greatest landslide in history.

The rural Northeast remained faithfully Republican through the Depression. The New Deal, which they viewed as an urban welfare scheme, didn't appeal to them. Upstate New York voted solidly against FDR in all four elections, as his home-state status had no effect.

Nixon still holds the record for most counties carried. Landon's strong support in the rural Northeast and Great Lakes precluded FDR from carrying a record number of counties.

Is it a record by percentage, or raw number? Because it can't be the former (1820).

Nixon had a state or two more than Roosevelt, though that probably doesn't make much difference.

Did any election produce something else comparable to e.g. Roosevelt's 97% in Mississippi?

1936 must have been the greatest landslide in history.

By margin of the popular vote, 1920 was the greatest landslide in the 20th century. Other than that, you have to go back to the era of good feelings to get landslides on that proportion. It's funny that the greatest landslide of the 20th century produced what many consider to be the worst president of the century!

Also, the period from 1920-1944 was pretty unique; it was a quarter century of virtually continuous landslides. The next four decades 1948-1988 saw a high share of landslides, too, but not continuously. Since 1992, we have had four straight non-landslide elections.

Margin of victory is a really bad indicator.

Republican A 28%
Republican B 26%
Democrat 46%

According to MOV, this is a Democratic landslide.

I can see the maps now too.  Is Dave going to put the counties of the yrs 1856 to 1956 on this site?

I thought they didn't have a popular vote in Colorado in 1876.


There is a comment about Colorado in the Gulf of Mexico, but I can not read it.

I have sent an inquiry to the e-mail contact for the site.

There is a PDF file for 2004 that can be zoomed.

What's interesting about 1920 is that unlike the other landslides of the century (1936, 1964, 1972, 1984) it wasn't a re-election.

And also one of only two elections where a sitting senator has defeated a candidate from a position that has historically been shown to be much more successful.

You could argue that 1928 and 1932 were landslides.
