Doniphan County, Kansas voted Republican in every election the Atlas has data. What other counties voted for the same party every time?

Also, does anyone have data for Doniphan County in presidential elections prior to 1892?

Leslie, Kentucky has always voted Republican; Elliot, Kentucky has always voted Democratic. I'll put up more as I find them.

I think this is for every single race in the county's history or something daft; although it came shockingly close to voting for Mongiardo in last year's Senate race (Leslie is in his State Senate district).

Before 1932 this was because it had been settled by Virginians. After 1932 it was because of the huge UMW organising drive in Central Appalachia.

That reminds me of Jackson County- it came within a single vote of going Democratic in the 1999 gubernatorial race. That probably would have been the first time it ever voted for a Democrat.

BTW, the best FDR ever did in Jackson was in 1932, when he managed to crack a staggering 16 percent of the vote (it gave Smith 3 percent in 1928, so that was a strong showing Wink).

The amazing thing about South Central KY is that the Republicans from there (Hal Rogers is a good example) are fairly moderate, at least economically (in direct contrast to the nutters in Northern KY...)

You get the same patterns in Tennessee interestingly enough, which leads me to Hancock county which (IIRC) has always voted GOP.

Those areas are historically quite populist... They're old school Republicans, from the Civil War era. They loathed the slave owning aristocrats of the lowlands, and fought against them. Then they voted against them- it's just that now they're on the same side, since the conservative old time Democrats have switched parties.

It's not suprising that the anti-elitist attitudes of south-central Kentucky and eastern Tennessee have survived, due to their traditionalism, isolation, and small populations.

There's more than a small amount of irony in that

True; it's funny that the big difference in voting patterns in Appalachia is determined mostly by geology

I've found some more counties that have always voted Republican: Wayne, Tennessee; Cocke, Tennessee; Yadkin, North Carolina; Carroll, Illinois; Gasconade, Missouri; Taney, Missouri; Clinton, Kentucky; Rockcastle, Kentucky; Butler, Kentucky; Cumberland, Kentucky; Monroe, Kentucky; Russell, Kentucky.

I'm bumping this big time, but Gasconade has never gone Democrat. It appears the large settlement of Germans was reliably Republican.

I think Taney, MO was sacked by Confederates during the Civil War and it's in a bloc of traditionally Republican counties with Northwest Arkansas.

Logan, WV has been Democratic every year the Atlas has data for except for 1928. In 1972 it was McGovern's only county in WV.
And Kerry nearly managed to lose it last year... *shakes head*

Amazing anyone would vote for a loon like McGovern when the other candidate is socialist-lite anyway.

Grant County, WV went GOP in every election for which there is data, if TR counts for 1912. Not that it has many people.

Grant County has been GOP since the Civil War. Except for a couple of precincts in the extreme southwest of the county.

Where are you getting WV precinct information?  That's the next state on my to-do list (I have only KY, WV, and MS left, I think, excluding states with no counties).
