McComb County is supposedly the home so-called "Reagan Democrats," and I guess Reagan's performance there surpassed that of Nixon greatly, especially Nixon's performance in 1968.
Humphrey won Macomb in a landslide (25 pts), while Nixon won it by a similar margin (28 pts). Ford won it narrowly (5 pts) likely due to a favorite son effect in 1976. In 1980, Reagan won it by a solid margin (11 pts), but only got .6% more of the vote than Ford. In 1984, Reagan won it a landslide (33 pts)
