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.

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?

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