Thurmond would win WV, ND, and probably Iowa and Michigan with the blue collar workers

Burdick would help Morse win all those states.

I don't know...I forgot Burdick was from ND, but WV, etc.; other than their home state, running mates don't tend to pull much in geographically save for a vastly ideologically and geographically different pair (ex. Helms and Ferraro or Wallace and Muskie, etc.); example being that in 92 Clinton probably could've won most of the southern states without Gore's help.  Don't over-estimate the power of a running mate.

I'm guessing something close to cathcon.  I don't see Thurmond having much appeal in the Upper Midwest
