I had no idea Vermont was as Catholic as New York by 1960. No wonder the GOP Yankee machine in the state started showing its first cracks with William H. Meyer's election around this time. Albert J. Gonzalez's book on the 1960 election found that anti-Catholicism affected the election patterns very heavily.

There was a particularly sharp Catholic-Protestant divide in the 1960 election (for obvious reasons) - certainly more so than in the Eisenhower era and in the LBJ landslide of 1964.
