I'm sure some Republican won a county in a state that they didn't get 10% in

The winner is probably Coleman Andrews winning one county and 2% in Tennessee in 1956.

Probably.

Alachua County, Florida, in 1928 doesn't qualify, but it does come close:

Smith (Republican) - 35.01%
Thomas (Socialist) - 32.18% (1.59% statewide)
Foster (Communist) - 30.45% (1.46% statewide)

I always like to bring that up.  Tongue

Smith a Republican? Perhaps you meant Hoover? If this is 1928 presidential you are referring to I am really confused by the percentage totals since it would appear no votes for Democrats.

Not Presidential, but look at Lugar's libertarian challenger's results in this election.  He somehow won a county getting about 10% of the vote.

Andrews also carried one county in Virginia the same year, while polling only 6 percent of the statewide vote. Honorable mention goes to Herbert Hoover, who carried two Georgia counties in 1932 with 8 percent of the vote.

Here’s what Sarah Palin represents: being a fat fucking pig who pins “Country First” buttons on his man titties and chants “U-S-A! U-S-A!” at the top of his lungs while his kids live off credit cards and Saudis buy up all the mortgages in Kansas.

That was a clerical error on CNN's part.  Osborn's vote count in Warren county should have been 341, not 3,419.  It's likely that a data entry guy accidentally brushed the 9 key when going to hit enter and didn't bother to double-check Indiana results, thinking the state inconsequential.

You can see the correct result here.

According to Dave, it was actually Indiana, not CNN.  But it was an error.

Whatever, my point still stands. Tongue

No, Gabu, it has come tumbling down like your tower of lies.
