I may ask too much, but I'd really love to see some national CD maps, if you can do them. Wink

Alright, I'm working on 1968, 1972, and 1992 national at the moment.  Wink  But it will take a while.

how did Humphrey lose the Seattle district?

Seattle was divided by the 1st and 7th at the time.  The first also contained Bellevue, which was heavily Republican back then.

However, Humphrey was able to win the 7th by 12%, which contained central and southern Seattle.

Only parts of it, but yeah, the 1968 results there require an explanation.

Compare state maps by year, 1960, 68, 76, 80. Sticks out like a sore thumb.

So, do we have anything new?

what districts in the west were hyperpartisan to the point where either Humphrey or Nixon won 50 percent? Looking at your map, it looks like Nixon won 50% in most of the districts he won including 60% in Arizona 1, California 35 and 36. The districts Humphrey got at least 50% look to be the Gus Hawkins district in Watts, the Phil Burton district, the Oakland based 8th (all in  Don Edwards San Jose district, maybe the Sacramento based 3rd, probably Oregon 3 (Portland) and maybe Washington 7.

It might have been because of Wallace, since he appealed to many in the working class.

Thing to remember about HHH in '68 was that his support - at least in the North and in the West - was tied into class patterns to an extent that was a little unusual even for the time.

Yeah, by a quick look at the Atlas page it seems Humphrey did significantly better in the Rust Belt States than democrats did at the time. Apparently that hurt him in  liberal-leaning but wealthy areas like the west coast.

Did you count how much districts each candidate won ? I'm curious to see if the results are lopsided (and in which way) considering the PV was almost tied.

I got 229 districts for Nixon, 159 districts for Humphrey, and 47 districts for Wallace.  I may be off by one or two.  The % of CDs won by each candidate was disproportional to the popular vote, but it is worthy to note that Humphrey outperformed Nixon in most of the southern CDs that Wallace won.

Also, I'd be interested in seeing what Wallace's best CD's outside the South were.

Thank you. Smiley

So the disproportion in the Electoral College remains in the CD count... I really don't understand where this Humphrey weakness comes from. Sure, he performed better than Nixon in Wallace States, but only slightly so and not in all of them.

With the Maine/Nebraska, it would give 293 to Nixon, 188 to Humphrey and 57 to Wallace.

I think it's because Nixon's districts wern't nearly as polarized as Humphrey's.  Nixon didn't break 70% in any CD, while Humphrey often broke 70% or 80% in the big city congressional districts.  Wink
