I could, but my computer's hard drive is fried so I don't have access to Microsoft Paint. When it's fixed, I might do it; I was already thinking of making one anyway.

I don't have access to the Atlas info for that time, but there's a book at the library that has all of the county results going back to 1920.

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).

Nice! Do you not have the data for the missing states?

Thanks. I have the data available; it's just very tedious to color in the maps. They'll definitely all be finished eventually, though.

Excellent work, Bob!  Have you shown your data source to Dave?  I expect he'd be incredibly grateful for it.

Thanks Smiley. Unfortunately, I don't think Dave would be able to use it, since it doesn't include third party votes (other than the major ones like LaFollette, Wallace, and Perot).

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.
