Didn't Boston start voting Dem before almost every other major city?

What county is it in?

Suffolk County voted Democrat in 1892, 1900, 1904, 1912, 1916, and then from 1928 onward, overwhelmingly Democrat every time.

Atlas doesn't have data for elections prior to 1892.

That's because of the Irish who lived there. They always voted Democratic.

But then why did Boston vote for Harding and Coolidge?

Don't have membership, but every time Washington state voted Republican so did King County.

So if someone with membership wants to check 1904 King County, maybe that will be the best a Republican ever did, because I'm pretty sure it's the best a Republican ever did in our state.

But then why did Boston vote for Harding and Coolidge?

Due tot he isolationst feelings of the Irish-Catholic Bostonains after the war. Nearly every family in Boston had a son go over to fight WWI, and a majority were killed and wounded. They responded to Harding's isolationist call.

For the 1924 campaign, the Irish voted against John W. Davis because they felt that the Democratic Party was controlled by the KKK and that is wyh Al Smith was denied the 1924 nomination.

Cook County voted Republican in 1900, 1904 (landslide), 1916, 1920, 1924, and 1928. In 1912, it went Progressive.

No data for 1908 or any time before then.

As for Philadelphia County, it voted GOP in 1892 (57.5%), 1896 (72.1%), 1900 (73.9%), 1904 (80.8%), 1908 (69.1%), 1912 (36.5%, but combined with TR, almost 70%), 1916 (66.8%), 1920 (73.4%), 1924 (77.7%), 1928 (60.0%), and even 1932 (54.5%). Democratic ever since, though 1948 was close.

Where did you think McKinley's support came from? Rural areas?
