It doesn’t surprise me that he won it given his gains in other southern states and anti-Catholicism but the fact that he won by nearly 30 points is kind of hard to believe. I would think that in that era any Democrat would have a fairly high ceiling, even Smith.

As much as I doubt this, it's worth throwing the theory that Charles Curtis had particular appeal to Native Americans into the discussion.

Wouldn’t surprise me if that had some small impact on the margin.

Maybe, but oddly enough, the big reservations in my state flipped for Smith, after having gone overwhelmingly for Coolidge four years prior.

Was it a different tribe? I can imagine different tribes might have differing political leanings at times.

Yes, I didn't mean to imply a connection to Oklahoma, just found it interesting.

I do as well, would be interesting to look at the possible political divides, like maybe the Kansas tribes were more hostile to prohibition.
