It's A Wonderful Life? Tongue



This is beautiful! Why the Republican strength in Springfield? And what happened in Haverhill to make the people there elect a Socialist?

Springfield was one of the more Republican-leaning towns at the time - Lodge even won it against Kennedy, if my memory serves me correctly.

The Haverhill election was a race between a dual-ballot line Progressive Republican and a Socialist. I'm supposing the Socialist received most of the Democratic vote as an anti-Republican vote and won, although I should check the previous and subsequent elections.

Interesting results from Heath. It seems that McCarthy and Anderson delayed the inevitable swing to the Democrats. Was it all from an influx of college kids?

That would be Amherst, actually. Smiley

Heath was just the Vermont of it's time, but that's another subject.

A Tale of Three Cities:

Fall River:
1900: McKinley, 57.57%
1904: Roosevelt, 49.69%
1908: Taft, 51.67%
1912: Wilson, 39.09%
1916: Wilson, 50.04%
1920: Harding, 64.37%
1924: Coolidge, 56.62%
1928: Smith, 61.46%
1932: Roosevelt, 61.65%

New Bedford:
1900: McKinley, 63.24%
1904: Roosevelt, 58.08%
1908: Taft, 58.33%
1912: Taft, 41.37%
1916: Hughes, 52.31%
1920: Harding, 78.13%
1924: Coolidge, 66.17%
1928: Smith, 52.88%
1932: Roosevelt, 57.88%

Cambridge:
1900: McKinley, 50.99%
1904: Parker, 48.85%
1908: Taft, 51.54%
1912: Wilson, 48.67%
1916: Wilson, 55.64%
1920: Harding, 58.15%
1924: Coolidge, 49.47%
1928: Smith, 60.93%
1932: Roosevelt, 60.86%

Also, a personal favorite of mine (though not a city by any stretch of the imagination):

Heath:
1960: Nixon, 73.71%
1964: Goldwater, 51.79%
1968: Nixon, 72.72%
1972: Nixon, 65.51%
1976: Ford, 46.66%
1980: Reagan, 44.25%
1984: Mondale, 54.13%

Cambridge went for Smith?
By damn near 61%?

Must be a lot more micks and papists living there then I gave the place credit for.

Cambridge was originally an industrial city, but as manufacturing decayed in New England became depressed and decided to be an intellectual haven instead. I guess it is like an early version of Duluth, although I am still a little too ignorant of Minnesota to make such a claim.

Thus why it has remained Democratic the whole time - as I've illustrated earlier in this thread, Eisenhower only lost it by a few hundred votes. Bill Weld won it in 1990, but not in 1994.

College kids? In Heath?

Got confused by an earlier post. Still, an interesting election when Mondale is the first one to win it in years.

Yeah, by the end of Reagan years, the old paleo-conservative ruralist attraction of the Republican Party had begun to wear thin in Western Mass, and nearly everything west of the Connecticut River started to vote for Democrats like crazy. Agrarian identities are no longer quite so important out there.

At least to 1900 and include presidential primaries, senator elections, gubernatorial elections, with including Leominster as well.

Wow, I didn't expected Stevenson winning Leominster/Fitchburg if I'm reading the 1952 map correctly. From what I've occurred it's seem like a conservative Democrat districts.

Actually, that was his appeal.

Look at this map (courtesy of homelycooking)



Reagan won both of those despite winning by a lesser margin. Blackstone, MA voted for John Davis when literally no other town in Massachusetts did, yet gave Reagan 55% of the vote. (The first time it ever voted Republican for President, I believe.)

I meant more of a blue collar conservative district, since Stevenson was the anti blue collar Democrat that are the base in two cities. Blackstone is the same if they voted for Reagan, which means that they are more Democratic then liberal.

Stevenson campaigned as something of a bog-standard New Dealer though, which was sufficient to keep them in the fold.

I'd be interested in seeing a map of when each city/town last voted the opposite party for President.

Here's something of the sort: the last vote for Republicans in CT. Hartford last voted GOP in 1924.
