You're welcome. I got lucky, by coincidence I happen to have an extreme amount of knowledge about the 1976 election.

I would have chosen Gephardt in 1988.

Wallace sounds very bad, so I stay with Carter.

I ended up in a vacation resort in the West Indies with little to do, and stumbled across a book by Jules Witcover on the 1976 election. It sparkled my interest in US elections, in fact. But it was a really thick book... Wink

Okay.  I like the 1912 election because it is the only election I can find where 4 candidates polled over 10% in a state.  Wilson, Taft, TR, and Debs all did this in Idaho in 1912.

BTW. I have some early memories about Mondale/Hart race. I was ten years old.

Mondela was weak. But Hart cheated his wife. Right?
So they both were bad candidates.

I like these elections as well. Smiley But there should be another one with several candidates over 10% somewhere...

Maybe...but I haven't found one yet.  There rarely are two third party candidates with an impact.

The Hart/Donna Rice scandal didn't break until 1987 though, when he was the early front-runner for the 1988 nomination.

LaRouche doesn't count. He runs every time, and fails miserably.



Anyone get my Tanner '88 joke?

4 candidates olled above 15% in Nevada in 1912.

Taft, the incumbent, finished 4th behind Debs in both Arizona and Nevada! That's immensely cool, imo. So you could Arizona to the list, Taft's 12.74% earned him 4th place there.

Debs ran 4th place in Washington with 12% of the vote as well. And Eugene Chafin, Prohibition, ran 5th place with 3.04%. I wonder if that's a 5th place record? Smiley
