Johnson, obviously. Most southern nonwhites didn't vote yet. Hispanics were a much smaller segment of the population.

     I would be very surprised if it were Goldwater who won white males.

True. Johnson's victory would've been far and away the largest popular vote margin ever if blacks were allowed to vote in the South.

It would've won him Georgia for sure, and probably South Carolina and Louisiana as well.

Johnson, in the 37 states not in the South, plus WV, KY and MO.

Johnson won 57% of white males and probably nearly as many non-hispanic White males. Since then Dems usually finish in the 30s with this group.

I remember reading years ago that LBJ won 57 percent of the white male vote, and 59 percent of the  white vote overall.

Pretty obvious it was Johnson, and the last time a Democrat won the white male vote (or the white vote altogether).

Do we know for sure Carter didn't win the white male vote in '76? Remember, the gender gap was reversed that year with Carter doing better among men and Ford doing better among women.

That's obviously the only election since '64 where it's even remotely possible.

Huh, Gallup says that men voted more Democratic than women, but the Roper Center says that they voted the same. I guess we'll never really know, but its much more likely Ford did.

I would even imagine that Johnson won Southern White males narrowly ... Keep in mind that his only landslide losses were MS and AL, and they're a small percentage of the South.  Johnson almost certainly won this group if you consider WV, KY and MO as Southern (they were all border states, after all, and certainly have more of a Southern feel than the other two border states - MD and DE).

White voters were, if I'm recalling correctly, 87 percent of the share of the U.S. Popular Vote in Election 1992.

If that's accurate, subtract 28 years and adjust the whites' share into the 90s percentile range.

After doing that, imagine Barry Goldwater—who received 38.47 percent of the U.S. Popular Vote, six states, and 52 electoral votes—somehow managing to have carried the white male vote nationwide.

Johnson obviously. I mean he won something like 2-1 outside of the south, and won almost every county, and the country was a lot whiter then.
