That type of “blame America” rhetoric may win Paul accolades at a conference of isolationists but it does nothing to improve our standing in the world.

Vermont was #1 for republicans 20/26 times from 1856-1956, and by far too. For such a small state its so interesting politically. Once Vermont became not-as-republican from 1960-1988, either southern states in some weird but prominent elections or plains/mountain states became the most republican.

For democrats, South Carolina seems to take the cake, with it being the most democratic 13/15 times from 1880-1936. That state had to be so corrupt, its pretty hard to have 95+% of people voting one way in any place. Eventually the Northeast became the most democratic area in America once the 60's hit. Massachusetts/Rhode Island basically traded off for a while, with the exception of elections with massive home state boosts (1976, 1992, etc.)

ElectionsGuy,

Really good effort!

The best-performed states should be recorded based on percentage margin carried.

If I have it correct, Utah has been the Republicans' best-performed state in the presidential election cycles of 1976 to 2012 with sole exception of 2008.

Yes, and in 2008 Wyoming was actually the best McCain state based on margin. For Democrats, 1992 Clinton's biggest margin was actually Massachusetts, not Arkansas.
