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?

In FDR's 1936 landslide, it looks like he won 13 out of 62 counties in his homestate. He only won 2 counties in nearby Vermont.

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

What would be nice is some system where you specify the boundaries, and then it takes in the data and colors it for you. The county boundaries do change, but not that often. You could use such a system to easily make custom maps, like the Eugene Debs vote by county with custom colors.

It's interesting how the West is so much more volatile than the East. In 1920 and 1936, nearly every county in the west voted for the winning candidate, while the northeast and southeast resisted landslides quite well.

That tells you something about the bandwagon nature of politics in a place where people don't have strong roots and deep history.

However, Carter in 1976 did poorly in the west, despite winning.

Very nice! I'm looking at the 1920 map and thinking "and people say we're too polarized now?"

Exit polls going back to 1972 show it's by far the most polarized it's been starting with 1972. Too bad we don't have exit polls from the '20s and '30s.

Why are their maps so small?

Lots of graphs there. It looks like people in Republican areas are more likely to be divorced.

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.

Badly translated version.
