Title: Election Results by Congressional Districts, OFFICIAL THREAD
Post by: Fuzzybigfoot on July 03, 2011, 06:43:40 pm
NOTE:  ALL OF OUR NATIONAL ELECTION MAPS ARE NOW ON PAGES 45 AND 66


And yes, all of our national maps were drawn by hand on Microsoft paint.

I'll start out with a few interesting maps from 1968.  :)


Washington

Data from the Almanacs of American Politics and The Atlas, except for the Texas CD map which came from http://www.tlc.state.tx.us/redist/pdf/congress_historical/c_1968_1970.pdf.

In 1968, where was Barbara Jordan's district split between? I'm guessing it was in the 8th and 22nd.

Yes, that sounds about right. Maybe a little bit from the old 7th district as well.


Edit:  For those who don't know who Barbara Jordan is, see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Barbara_Jordan.

. Its interesting how Ford got 60% of the vote in Indiana 2, yet Floyd Fithian managed to hold on to the district for the rest of the decade until 1982 when Indiana went down one seat and they combined his seat with Elwood Hillis. He then ran for the senate and gave Dick Lugar his toughest race of his career.

. Also, its interesting how Ford lost the Indianapolis district. Mondale won the district in 1984. Of course, I think the black community was split up between the 11th and 6th districts.

. As for Arizona, how did Ford win Morris Udall's district. Dukakis won it 55-43.

Lastly, what was Ford's best district?
I remember hearing he won Texas 3 something like 72-28. He probably won Texas 7 by a lot too.

Back in the 70's, Mark Udall's district didn't contain the Democrati parts of Phoenix, which really delivered for Dukakis in 1988. ;)

Ford's best district was TX-7, which gave Ford 73% of the vote to Carter's 26%.

what district was the dem areas of Phoenix in back then?

On some of the wikipedia pages for congressional districts, it describes its changes over time. It does for Arizona. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Arizona%27s_1st_congressional_district

When AZ was first divided into two separate districts (rathern then electing both at-large) in the late 40's they put all of Maricopa in the first and then everything else into the second (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Arizona%27s_2nd_congressional_district). When AZ began to vote Republican, GOP strength was centered in the Phoenix metro area, while Dem strength was everywhere else. Which fit the common 1950's -1970's political divide of Metro Republican versus rural Dem, in the west. During this period there was a lot of in-migration of midwestern Republicans, which I beleive you have mentioned somewhere, was first aimed at Phoenix (John Rhodes was born in KS). Realignment of rural voters (many of which were Southerners or descendents of such) moved the rural areas to the GOP while diversification of the in-migration made Phoenix less Republican. Hence why AZ-01 which was super GOP in the 1970's had become a marginal seat by 2000.

the problem is that the almanac of american politics only goes back to 1972, so it only shows the results by CD to 1968. It would be cool to see what districts were so hardcore GOP that Goldwater won them.

If I had to guess the districts Goldwater won would be:
all 8 Alabama districts
Rhodes Arizona district
maybe Northwest Arkansas
James Utt and Bob Wilson's California district. Maybe an LA district or two
A few upstate Florida districts
most of the rural Georgia districts
Idaho 2
a few suburban chicago area seats
the Indiana district that took in the counties surrounding Indianapolis
maybe the old 5th district in Kentucky
all of Louisiana except the New Orleans district
all 5 Mississippi districts
Nebraska 3
The 6th and 1st districts in Oklahoma
a few South Carolina districts
the two eastern Tennessee districts
I know he lost all the Texas districts but under the 1966 map, I think he won the 3rd and 7th
maybe a district or two in downstate Virginia

Ford actually won the Indianapolis district 55%-45%.  It was gerrymandered by Republicans to contain the most Republican parts of Marion county.  By 1981, Republicans gave up and just drew the district to be a Dem vote sink.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.  ;)

A pretty dull map, but it is worthy to note that Carter came closer to winning WA-1 in 1980 than in 1976.  Washington's first gave Ford a 9% edge in 1976, and only gave Reagan a 4% MOV in 1980.

Reagan gained quite a bit of ground in WA-3 and WA-6, both of which swung 16% and 15% GOP respectively.

Very interesting to see the change. Looks like the GOP+ swing was greatest in OK and E TX. The hollowing out of Carter's support in Southern Appalachia is interesting too.
For the DEM+ swing, I see some areas in the Deep South with high African American populations - even though remarkably the Birmingham and SW MS districts still voted Republican. Also a majority Hispanic city (San Antonio) and a majority black city (Memphis), and a majority white city (Lexington). But none of those swings are very large, right?

The 5th briefly showed us its old voting patterns again in 2006, with Cantwell winning Asotin and Spokane (Spokane is most of the district) and almost winning Pend Oreille. She also won Whitman, but that's a more recent trend to the Democrats.

Both, a lot of African Americans were really turned off by Reagan for his perceived hardcore conservatism on social and economic issues.  Not that Republicans were doin well with black voters anyways, but that's one of the reasons that so many city districts swung (and in some cases) flipped to Carter.  Latte liberals also felt more at home with Carter, which helped as well.

Yes, but only by a single percentage point.  ;)

So Denver and Seattle didn't seem to care much about Reagan's conservatives. I guess that's because he was a regional candidate.
Or did Anderson's candidacy split the liberal vote and Reagan won with a plurality?

Excellent, thanks a lot. So the Marin district came in and took a bit of San Francisco it looks like? Anderson did pretty well in those districts south of SF, didn't he? Did he also do pretty well in the west LA county coastal district, pretty much the predecessor of the current 36th.

They moved to areas that were previously rural counties, which for the most part meant Republican going back to the civil war in the NE.  They continued to vote 2-1 Republican but now they had 5 and 10 times as many voters, thus packing a bigger punch.


BK said something like this in the GA redistricting thread about those 70%+ GOP counties North of Atlanta. They had always been Republican (always defined as 15 to 20 years I guess. ;)) but now have many more voters then they did back then. Thus keeping GA about the same overall politically even as traditionally Republican (Going back about 30 years here) Cobb and Gwinnett began to settle into the lower 50's Republican.

So Carter got trounced in upstate NY and most of internal midwest. But he did quite well in western PA-eastern OH, where dems have lost a lot of ground recently. Also surprising to see how NoCal was much more dem despite the State overall being lean-R.

CA 25 chicano majority district
CA 28 (took in the wealthier black areas of LA I think)

CA 31 (Carson, Compton)

what was Ford's best district in CA? I'm guessing the 39th or 40th maybe?

Post by: Fuzzybigfoot on September 08, 2011, 07:17:40 pm
what districts did Carter win in SoCal?

Here's my guess

CA 21 San Fernando Valley district (huge jewish and hispanic population)
CA 23 and 24 (hollywood area districts, also huge jewish population)
CA 25 chicano majority district
CA 28 (took in the wealthier black areas of LA I think)
CA 29 (huge AA population, I'm guessing he got around 85 percent here)
CA 30 (inner-ring suburban district with sizable hispanic population)
CA 31 (Carson, Compton)
CA 32 (Long Beach)
CA 36 (pretty much the same as the current 43rd)
CA 42 (blue collar areas of San Diego)

Yep, plus CA-24, which is Henry Waxman's district.

Great map, Fuzzleton. I appreciate it a lot. I get bored easily, but when you post a map, I know I'll have a good afternoon ;)

Thanks.

PS: Burtor included CA 24, look

CA 23 and 24 (hollywood area districts, also huge jewish population)

The L.A. district that swung to Carter was CA-29, it contained much of Los Angele's black community and was just south of downtown.

2. What was the racial % of the district then?

1.)  Humphrey got 54% of the vote in TX-8.  Wallace came in second with 24%, and Nixon came in third with 21%.

2.)  It was 29% black, 10% hispanic, and I guess 61% white (they didn't give the white % for some reason)

When looking at the interest group ratings, Bob Eckhardt really sticks out like a sore thumb compared to other southern democrats. He usually got in the 80s and 90s by the ADA. I guess in a D+11 district, he could afford to vote as he did.

Something I've wondered about for 11 years:  Did Nixon win his home CD in 1968?  I'm not sure which one that was.  Possibly NY 17 (represented by Republicans John Lindsay and Theodore Kupferman in the 1960's). 

It looks like Manhattan was good for ~3.5 seats in those days.  Other possibilities are Leonard Farbstein's 19th (succeeded by Bella Abzug), and Adam Clayton Powell's 18th (I think this is unlikely).  Manhattan would have included a piece of at least one other district. 

(As you recall Gore lost his home state and home CD in 2000) -- caused me to look up that only
Polk (1844), Wilson (1916) and Nixon (1968) have lost their home states (of residence, not birth) and won the presidency.

Districts where Gore outperformed Clinton (by 1996 lines)

NC-12 is yellow, which means it's in doubt.  And it looks like Gore did better in VA-8 than Clinton did in 1996.  I'm not exactly sure, but I think Virginia's 8th CD stayed pretty much the same, even though the state's map was edited in 1998 due to gerrymendering.  

I think NYC's districts may have switched around a bit as well, so that part of the map may not be perfect.



But everything else is fine.  :)

It's amazing (though unsurprising) how urban the Gore>Clinton districts are. There are well over 50 shaded districts (if I counted right), and they probably cover no more land than the state of Maine.

The Almanacs.  Their partisan data is rounded to the nearest percentage point, which probably explains why we got different results.  Is polidata more accurate?

Polidata has to one tenth of a percent, which is important given that most such CD's listed are quite urban and very Democratic, giving them less room to swing. OTOH, I think years ago a poster had mentioned that some polidata results don't add up completely to county totals.

NC is almost like an inverse of TN. In TN the Western and Middle parts were as democratic as anywhere in the deep south. Eastern Tennessee was always GOP. In NC, the western part (the area that borders East Tennessee) was GOP while the eastern part has always been dem (and still is today).

Its also interesting to see that a lot of the first areas to become GOP in the south are areas that are dem now. An example would be Mecklenburg County, NC and Dallas County, TX. Dallas County gave Nixon 62% in 1960 and Mecklenbug County gave Nixon 55% in 1960. In 2008 Obama won 57% in Dallas County and 61% in Mecklenburg County.

Thanks to Miles' post in another thread:

Here's NC from 1940-1960:

(http://i1132.photobucket.com/albums/m576/MilesC56/nc1941.png)

Not sure if this is also for 1964 (or similar), but according to this map in 1964, Goldwater only won the 9th, by only 18 votes.


Title: Re: Mr. Fuzzleton presents: Assorted Presidential Election Results by C.D.
Post by: Miles on October 14, 2011, 02:23:00 am
Thanks for the mention, nclib. Actually, after 1960 census, NC got cut to 11 seats from 12.

Here are the pre-1960 and post-1960 maps:

1940-1960
(http://i1132.photobucket.com/albums/m576/MilesC56/nc1941.png)

1961
(http://i1132.photobucket.com/albums/m576/MilesC56/nc1961c.png)

Most of the redistricting drama happened in western NC, as the Democrats axed a seat there. Basically, Mecklenburg and Lincoln were transferred to the 8th and the rest of the 10th was clumped with the Rutherford, Cleveland and Gaston from the 11th.
The old 12th expanded was renumbered the 11th. The 1961 11th is almost identical to the current 11th,

Goldwater won the 9th with 50.9%, or a margin of about 2600 votes. I don't think he would have come close in any of the others, though I suspect his next best would be the 4th, as it took in Davidson and kept Randoplh.

anybody know why Mecklenburg County has always voted differently from the rest of the south? Based on PVIs, it was consistently at around R+10 from 1952 to 1972, then around an R+5 from 1976 to 1988, around EVEN from 1992 to 2004, and is now around a D+8.

Thanks. The 4th went 53% for LBJ and the 10th went 52.6% for LBJ. It shouldn't be that difficult to find most of the Goldwater CD's since rural states back then didn't usually split counties.

I've seen maps of that election before, but it's still interesting. The power of electoral deference in America was once a remarkable thing; now gone forever, I suspect. Of course many of the districts held by the Democrats in '92 and subsequently lost were regained (and subsequently lost again; and maybe in a post-Obama world the pattern might repeat, at least in places) but not in the same way.

Well of course.  However that doesn't mean Travis County today should be split up between 4 or 5 districts when one district could easily fit entirely in the county.  Same with Tarrant County, I think there are 4 or 5 districts which go divide it up when two districts could fit inside the county.

The difference between the Northeast and the South is especially interesting. In the early 1990s, the Democrats still held a majority of the Congressional districts in the South (it stayed that way until 1994). And the Republicans still hold a whole lot of their ancestral districts in Upstate New York, Eastern Connecticut, Massachusets and Maine (I think Olympia Snow represented Maine in the House back then).

Definitely. I just wish I had county data to go along with it. Alas, that's a project for another time.

If there are any of those maps that you'd like to see shaded, I could probably do that.

There were a lot of unopposed elections in the Solid South (Texas only had one contested race!) and California, but outside those two, there were only two: one in Iowa and one in Ohio. I also included the vote for the congressional delegates from Alaska and Hawaii.

Of note is that about 1/5 of the 90% Democratic shades in the South were contested by Republicans, but who just were crushed any way.

Things I found noteworthy:

A candidate from the American Labor Party won one seat in Manhattan (Upper East Side, it appears). A number of other ALP candidates won 15%-30% in north Manhattan and especially the Bronx. A deposed Dem senator tried to Murkowski his way to reelection in Milwaukee, but failed (the 30%R district). The Republicans managed to flip every seat in Philadelphia, but the Dems gained a couple seats in Massachusetts and the Iron Range seat in MN.

Oh, and the one Dem in Washington is Scoop Jackson. I thought that was cool.

The 1994 map isn't quite as striking as you might think on first glance, but you can tell by looking at a few things that the Republicans definitely won. The South still looks fairly even (which, of course, was way down from what the Dems had previously), but I think that's mostly because of the big rural districts being won by the Democrats. Combine that with the lack of a strong Democratic base in New England or the West Coast (like we see today) and the Republicans doing pretty well in the Rust Belt, and you can see their majority.

does anyone here think that Reagan might have won the hispanic vote in some states/areas? Looking at the presidential election results in some of the LA districts, he might have. The 30th district, which stretched from Maywood to Asuza and was 54% hispanic, gave Reagan 55% of the vote and the 34th, which stretched from Norwalk to West Covina was 47% Hispanic and gave Reagan 59% of the vote.

I kind of doubt Reagan won the hispanic vote in any state overall, but who knows?  I can't find any detailed state-by-state exit polls from those times.  :P

Btw it's extreamely likely that hispanic voters were the only reason Reagan didn't win those CDs you mentioned with say, sixty something percent (or more) of the vote.

House vote on maintaining forced and desegregated busing (early 70's)

Green= Aye

Red= Nay

Yellow= Abstain/other

White= No data



This vote was most likely taken between 1972 and 1974, which would explain why my 1976 almanac didn't have all the data.

does anyone here think that Reagan might have won the hispanic vote in some states/areas? Looking at the presidential election results in some of the LA districts, he might have. The 30th district, which stretched from Maywood to Asuza and was 54% hispanic, gave Reagan 55% of the vote and the 34th, which stretched from Norwalk to West Covina was 47% Hispanic and gave Reagan 59% of the vote.

What % of voters were actually Hispanic though? And the white vote in those areas would have been strongly for Reagan.

yes, I would have assumed those areas would have been populated by Walt Kowalskis back in the 80s. I wouldn't be surprised if he got 65-70 percent of the white vote in those areas.

Looking at my book, it looks as though the 30th was 48% hispanic and the 34th was 42% hispanic.

AR, LA, and OK permitted one not to tabulate for unopposed candidates. Second, I find it interesting how Republican VA was before the rest of the south was. They had a 9-1 delegation in 81 and 82.

105th House of Representatives (1996)

Who's the independent in Missouri?

Jo Ann Emerson was too late to file for the Republican primary for the general election after her husband died, so she had to run as an Independent.

Interestingly though, she was able to run as a Republican for the special election to fill out the remainder of his term, which was held on the same day as the general.  She won both, of course.  However, she chose to serve out the rest of her husband's term as an Independent (caucusing with the GOP), despite being elected as a Republican, and then officially joined the Republican caucus at the start of the new Congres, despite being elected to it as an Independent.

Bill Emerson was the representative for that seat.  He died in June 1996.  A special election for the remainder of his 1995-97 term was called for the same day as the 1996 general election for the 1997-99 term.  His wife Jo Ann filed to run in both.  She was able to run as a Republican in the special, but it was too late for her to enter the Republican primary for the general, so she ran as an Independent.

She was elected in the special as a Republican, but served out the rest of Bill's term as an Independent (albeit caucusing with the Republicans).  She was simultaneously elected in the general as an Independent, but officially caucused with the Republicans when the new Congress began.

Make sense?

and the reason why she couldn't have the Republican nod for the 97-99 election was that two frequent candidates were running v. Emerson, and when Emerson died, his name was removed and filing couldn't be reopened. She was able to be on the ballot as a Republican for the special election because party committees pick nominees for special elections in Missouri.

It happens a lot.  In 2010, IN-03 and NY-29 had specials on the same day as the general.  In 2006 there was NJ-13 and TX-22.  Even the special we've been talking about in MO-08 was accompanied by a 'double election' in KS-02 at the same time.

The issue here Antonio (and it's understandable to be confused about, since it's weird!) is that there is a period in the U.S. after the election when the members elected in the previous election still have their seats, and can indeed pass laws. So for example, if Congress meets in mid-November or December 2012, it will be the members elected in 2010 even though some of them might have just been defeated in early November 2012; the new members won't take their seats until January 2013.

There's an interesting story about MS-4.  Just before the election the Republican incumbent Jon Hinson admitted to participating in homoerotic activities in greater D.C., which served as a massive bump for black independent Lester McLermore.  Hinson was still able to pull off a narrow win by reassuring voters that he had persued religious guidance; his new wife even stood by him and campaigned for his reelection as well.

Both of Hinson's elections had the opposition split, although he had the majority in 1978

1978: Hinson 51.6%, John H. Stennis (son of the Senator) 26.4%, Evan Doss 19%, Other 3%
1980: Hinson 39%, Leslie McLemore (I) 29.8%, Britt Singletary (D) 29.4%, John Wayne McInerney 1.9%

Both Democratic primaries were a bit divided

1978 1st: Stennis 43.15%, James Disharoon 18.4%, Melvin Jennings 16.2%, Bob Mitchell 8.1%, Ken Johnson 7.4%, DA Tuttle 3.4%, E. Michael Marks 3.3%
1978 runoff: Stennis 59.1%, Disharoon 40.9%
1980 1st: Henry Kirksey 42.75%, Singletary 27.8%, WH Pyron 24.7%, WB Cagle 4.8%
1980 runoff: Singletary 56.7%, Kirksey 43.3%

Both times, the Dem / Dem+Ind vote was lower than the percentage of victory the Dem had in the runoff.

It'd be interesting to see how the county results went for these elections.

In 1976, MS4 went 54-44 for Ford, the most Republican district in the state. Then it went 54R-14D in 1978 with almost 32% going to mainly Evers.

So Hinson was running behind the averages before things got worse for him.

And as for NM-2, incumbent Harold Runnels (D) was so popular by 1980 that the Republicans didn't bother fielding a candidate.  However, Runnels died in August 1980, and the Attorney General (D) decided that the Dems could replace him on the ballot, but the GOP weren't allowed to field a new candidate.  The backlash was two-fold: the Democrats picked the governor's nephew over Runnels' widow, who got pissed and ran as a write-in, thus splitting the Democratic vote; and public anger at the AG's stupid partisan decision, combined with Reagan's coattails, allowed write-in candidate Joe Skeen (R) to win with 38%.

Request:
Districts where Anderson outperformed Perot '92

I'll see what I can do.  ;)

After looking at several maps, it looks as though Anderson only outperformed Perot in the current district of CA-8 and a maybe a few districts in NYC (Manhattan, mainly).  Not much to go on in order to make a map.  Sorry  :(  I could probably do a Anderson vs. Perot '96 map if you wanted, Hermit.  Would that be okay?

From what I've gathered so far, Anderson performed much better in the cities with Perot doing well everywhere else, which isn't surprising at all. 

The map is still in progress.  BTW I'm actually just guessing the districts, since there's not exact correlating data.

BTW the map boundaries were drawn by Shilly, and the partisan data came from The Almanacs of American politics, Issues 1988, 1990, and 1992.

Here's the presidential swing by congressional district for 1984 to 1988

...


I'm trying to find the best examples of Reagan Democrats from that map. I don't count western areas where the strongest swings happened (ID-2, CO-4, KS-1, etc.) since they were still quite GOP in 1988. It looks like New England (except Boston), upstate NY, West Virginia (and CD's bordering it), and the "thumb" of Michigan.

Yeah, I've wondered about that too.  Western Pennsylvania also bucked the trend in 1984 when it swung heavily to Mondale.  Maybe it just developed an anti-incumbant feeling since almost every president has failed to keep their economy from free-falling in the last 30+ years?  We should get Dr. Cynic or Phil in here to see if they know anything about it.

Hmmm, here's what the 1998 Almanac of American Politics said about CA-8:

1992:

75% Clinton

16% Bush Snr.

8% Perot



1996:

66% Clinton

18% Dole

4% Perot

12% other


I forgot that Ralph Nader was on the ticket.  But still, I wonder why The Atlas shows it swinging to Clinton.  My paid account expired, so I can't see the percentages.

Fuzzy, you seriously need to find a way to get this book: http://www.amazon.com/Historical-United-States-Congressional-Districts/dp/0029201500/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1327908088&sr=1-1 (http://www.amazon.com/Historical-United-States-Congressional-Districts/dp/0029201500/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1327908088&sr=1-1)

It's super expensive, so see if any library near you has it. My university has a copy in the library, and it's what I use to make the old CD maps.

Or this one (http://www.amazon.com/Historical-Political-Parties-Congress-1789-1989/dp/0029201705/ref=sr_1_4?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1327908201&sr=1-4), by the same guy, which is pretty much the same but it comes with the districts shaded by party by election (no intervals though). He also has an atlas on the Confederate Congress.

Oh my god, those are expensive.  :o  Anyways, thanks realistic. It looks like I'm taking a trip to the Library.  ;D

Surprisingly enough, my local library has that book.

http://books.google.com/books?id=HPZWAAAAMAAJ&pg=PA123&source=gbs_selected_pages&cad=3#v=onepage&q&f=false

Most of the maps had changed since the 1964 elections due to VRA, but some of them, e.g. MN, IA, ME, RI, did not.  So you can check those off your list.  :)

What was the D >30% in VA?

That was Virginia's 3rd.  There was an indepedent candidate Edward E. Haddock that took the black and liberal vote, while the conservative vote was split between Democrat David E. Satterfield III and Republican Richard Obenshain.  Satterfield narrowly prevailed, partially due to name recongnition (his father Dave E. Satterfield Jr. represented the district from 1937 to 1945).

I don't know if it's the fact that 1936 is unanimously Democratic or what, but it seems like that in 1924 the Democrats were actually stronger in parts of lower Manhattan.  Specifically in Districts 13 and 16.
Could this have something to do with intra-party feuds (ie Roosevelt vs. Tammany Hall)?

I don't think so, actually.  It must just be the blue contrasting with the red in 1924 to make the Democratic shades look stronger by comparison.  ;)

Which elections are you missing the maps for, and which ones the data?

Hmm, pretty much anything pre-1920 for the data as well as the maps.  I might go back to the university to get that big congressional book again.  lol

This is such an awesome thread - I'm not a fan of  the nondescript new title, since I went looking for these presidential election maps and didn't even recognize it even though it was stickied at the top of the page. It should say be "election result maps by congressional district" or something like that.

Not quite, Minnesota had the Farmer-Laborer party (before they merged with the Democrats) and Wisconsin had the Progressive Party.  :)

I'm trying my hardest to find the NC maps for you!

The historical maps (http://www.ncga.state.nc.us/GIS/Download/ReferenceDocs/2011/NC%20Congressional%20Districts%20-%20Historical%20Plans%20-%201941-1992.pdf) I downloaded from the Legislature's website only go to 1941 :(

I also found this map (http://www.learnnc.org/lp/multimedia/10384), but its from the 1870's....

Ok, here's NC in the 1920s!

(http://uselectionatlas.org/FORUM/GALLERY/4344_08_04_12_1_56_42.png)

I compiled individual distrcit results from a site called Our Campaigns (http://www.ourcampaigns.com/) into this map. I couldn't find county results for districts 2 or 3, so I made an educated guess; the districts I have for them are most consistent with other historical NC maps I've seen.

Yeah, although much of the differences stemmed from the resistance of rural legislators to redistricting. Most of those districts you see were severely under or overpopulated, even by 1920, not to mention a decade later.

There was no restriction to the discrepancy in population between districts at that time ?

Okay, I organized all the nationwide congressional election maps into a single post (and in order from the earliest to most recent elections).  

All maps from 1920 to 1930 were mostly drawn by Jackson.  1946, 1948, and 1952-1958 were made by realisticidealist.  1984,1988, and 2004 (except Texas and Georgia) were drawn by Shilly and colored by Fuzzy.  

Enjoy!

:D Great job!

However, it looks like 1958 is just a copy of 1956.

This thing needs a table of contents badly. :P

Or maybe I should just redo the entire thread.  :P  seriously lol

It takes me 10 minutes or so just to load one page of this thing. So digging through it to find a particular year is a multi-day project.

The only state I have that for is NC:

(http://i1132.photobucket.com/albums/m576/MilesC56/nc201210.png)

It would have been a definite 10-3 in 2010 under 2012 lines. McIntyre and Shuler would have each gotten about 45-46%, Kissel would have got about 43% and neither Etheridge or Miller would struggle to get 40%.

I wasn't exactly sure of the percents for districts 1, 4 and 12, but they're super-safe anyway.

Here's 2008 for contrast:

I'd be interested in seeing what's possible of 1964 pres.--even if without shading. This would be at least at-large states, CD's made up of whole counties, and areas obvious for one party by county results.

This seems quite difficult due to US elections being more candidate driven. Jim Matheson, for instance, considerably overperforms his district's lean, but his district has been chopped up. So the notional Utah results will have a fairly weak correlation with the final results.

I understand that some districts will have very 'weird' results, but I still think a notional map could be a very useful tool.

From the looks of it, it seems that Goldwater did best in the LA and Chicago metro areas. From the looks of it, it seems that he won in the SoCal:

The Antelope Valley seat (Ed Reinecke)
The Pasadena/Glendale seat (H.A. Smith)
The San Gabriel Seat (Glenard Lipscomb)
The Long Beach seat (Craig Hosmer)
The Trans SD-OC seat (Jim Utt)

and in IL it looks like he won:
The Northwest seat (John Anderson)
The exurban seat (Charlotte Reid)
The DuPage district (John Erlenborn)
The Northeast seat (Bob McClory)
The Southwest Cook Seat (Ed Derwinski)
The Cicero/Riverside Seat (Harold Collier)

Districts where Gore outperformed Clinton (by 1996 lines)



(http://uselectionatlas.org/FORUM/GALLERY/5422_17_10_11_1_49_13.png) (http://uselectionatlas.org/FORUM/GALLERY/5422_17_10_11_1_49_13.png)It looks like Gore outperformed Clinton in part of the I-4 Corridor that starts from Daytona Beach and goes to the Orlando area maybe.




NC-12 is yellow, which means it's in doubt.  And it looks like Gore did better in VA-8 than Clinton did in 1996.  I'm not exactly sure, but I think Virginia's 8th CD stayed pretty much the same, even though the state's map was edited in 1998 due to gerrymendering.  

I think NYC's districts may have switched around a bit as well, so that part of the map may not be perfect.



But everything else is fine.  :)

The Republicans had a couple seats in Western Northern Washingston State. They did well in Washington State in 1994. Weird to see how the party shift in Washington State on this thread throughout the regions in Washington State!

Few observations:
AR, LA, and OK permitted one not to tabulate for unopposed candidates. Second, I find it interesting how Republican VA was before the rest of the south was. They had a 9-1 delegation in 81 and 82.
Whats striking about that map is how many electoral votes Illinois, Ohio,  Pennsylvania, Michigan and New York have lost. How many electoral votes Florida, California, and Texas have gained.

What's the deal with NC and SC?

Clinton was hurt in North Carolina after his administration started taking on big tabacco, which might explain the contrast. 
Oh yeah NASCAR was sponsored by Winston back then too and North Carolina was NASCAR country back then as well as home to 3 NASCAR Event Tracks.  Didn't know SC had a problem with Clinton's hardline stance against the tabacco industry.

Dark Blue=CD where Bush Snr. won/GOP Representative

Light Blue=CD where Bush Snr. won/Dem Representative


Dark Red=CD where Dukakis won/Dem Representative

Light Red=CD where Dukakis won/GOP Representative
Alot of ticket splitting in the Southeast Region, Oklahoma, Idaho and Montana as well. Washington State's most eastern congressional district split their ticket as well voting for Bush H.W. as well as Foley I think.

The district that Roukema won in 1980 is a Bergen County-based district on this map. She received a favorable redistricting in which that district took in northern Passaic and most of Sussex. The Warren and Sussex district was represented in the 95th Congress by Helen Stevenson Meyner, who was the wife of a former Governor, daughter of an ambassador, and distant cousin of Adlai Stevenson. She was first elected in 1974 in the wake of Watergate, and was narrowly reelected in 1976 before being defeated by Jim Courter in 1978.

Also, 5 districts didn't experience a statistically significant swing either way [Barber (AZ), Wasserman-Schultz (FL), McCarthy (NY), Keating (MA), Tierney (MA)].

These are unofficial results, and I didn't see any absentee ballots listed, so I guess Kerrey could still conceivably win CD2. I'll go back and check these numbers in a week or so just to be sure.

Here's Virginia:

VA-1: Romney 52.98%-45.40%

Well, just look at the statewide trend in WV.  It looks like the reverse of Vermont in the 1990's-2000's.  I think it is pretty obvious that West Virginia Democrats are going the way of Vermont Republicans.  A New England businessman just got 62% there and the State House nearly flipped.  Manchin and Tomblin are the Jim Jeffords and Jim Douglas of Appalachian.  Their personal brand was the only thing that kept their seats intact.  I anticipate Rahall losing in 2014 because I think there will be coattails from Capito or McKinley winning the Rockefeller seat.   It's also going to be nigh impossible for a rural Dem to get out of the presidential primary going forward.  Even if he makes it through, they will get him in 2016 with a green-flavored Dem running for president.

I'm keeping a watch on some of Washington's congressional districts btw.  It looks like WA-1, 2, 6, and 10 will all likely be 50% Democrat.  Romney is still leading in WA-3 by 3,000 votes, and based on county results, will most likely break 60% in WA-4 (which was about 58%-39% McCain in 2008) and 50% in WA-5.  Nothing out of the ordinary.

Well, when they redistricted Nebraska they pretty much just flipped the portion of Sarpy County in NE-02 so that it took in the west portion rather than the east. If you flip the Sarpy portions back, you'd get the following rough estimate:

NE-01: Romney 58.39% / Obama 39.92%
NE-02: Romney 51.99% / Obama 46.57%

Closer, but he still definitely lost.

Yeah, its awful.

Since 2000, the PVI of that district has gone from D+3 to R+17 :(

Yes, I think Rahall is gone in 2014 at this point, and there are only 1 or 2 Democrats who could hold the Rockefeller seat.

Rahill is probably one Democrat who will have an easier time without Obama at the top of the ticket.  If Rahall is going to lose in 2014, why wouldnt he have lost in 2012? 

Because he gave the level of performance that typically draws in a stronger challenger the next time? Oh, sorry, I forgot elections are linear.

Mainly for this reason:

(http://uselectionatlas.org/FORUM/GALLERY/3962_27_07_12_11_03_52.png)

Those Republican towns in the northwest of the 1st district make more sense in the 5th district, the GOP argued, because of their more rural character. The GOP wanted those towns swapped with New Britain, which is attached by that appendage reaching into the Farmington Valley. With good reason, too: Roraback lost his race in the 5th by 7,088 votes, but Esty's margin in New Britain was 9,261 votes. The GOP failed to pick up that seat partly because the redistricting plan was, if anything, biased toward Democrats.

Here are numbers for LA:

CD3- 66.1/32.3 R
CD4- 59.0/39.7 R
CD5- 61.1/37.4 R
CD6- 66.3/32.6 R

Early voting isn't accounted for on a precinct basis. This becomes problematic in Jefferson and Orleans parishes, as its hard to tell if CD1 was over or under 70%. Use these numbers for now, and I'll keep trying to find a solution.

I looked at the MS results again. It appears the reason that MS-02 swung to Romney is because the portion in Madison County swung wildly to Romney going off of the Daily Kos Elections results for 2008 Madison in MS-02. I just went back and checked the 2008 precinct results, and the portion of Madison in MS-02 in 2008 actually went ~76% for McCain, not 80% Obama as they claim (which makes much more sense).

By my calculations, MS-02 was actually 61.1% Obama and 38.3% McCain in 2008 rather than 64.2% Obama and 35.22% McCain. This means that the district actually swung 0.51% to Obama.

FL-23: 61.5%/37.8% Obama
FL-24: 89.0%/11.7% Obama
FL-25: 50.4%/49.1% Romney (entirely thanks to Collier County; Obama won elsewhere)

I was doing some of the pre-DeLaymander TX districts (yes, an obsession of mine).

Max Sandlin's TX-01 would have been 72.9/26.0 Romney and Charlie Stenholm's TX-17 would have been 79.6/19.1 Romney.

Pretty amazing that 26% and 19% Obama districts were electing Democrats just a decade ago.

It barely changed. Most of the map changes was a bit of rotation to the other districts to better split the Milwaukee suburbs.

In 2000 that district had Beloit in it.


WI-01 and WI-08 are 51.6% Romney. WI-07 is just behind at 50.8%. It is an excellent gerrymander.

I estimated 56/43 Romney for NC-09 and that was pretty close; with only some absentees outstanding, I got 55.7/43.1 Romney. That's up from 54.1/45.0 McCain.

There was actually a slight swing towards Obama in NC-12. I got 78.6/20.5, up from 78.1/21.4 in 2008.

that district always confused me a lot. The 1982-1990 Colorado 1 gave Mondale 53% even though the city of Denver gave him only 50%. My guess is that it took in Aurora and Commerce City which I'm guessing were dem strongholds even then.

Hmph. Colorado had 6 districts in the 1990 census, and population of 3,294,394. Just under 550k per district. Denver's population at the time was 467610. Plausible I guess if it grabbed the most Dem areas of the surrounding counties.

The other surprise is the southern Milwaukee district that was dissolved in the 2000 census. It was Dem held at the time, but it contains a large portion of Waukesha it looks like. At a guess it would be competitive today along those lines.

Not too much, though.  Mondale won the 4th district by 4 points back in 1984, and the district basically kept the same boundaries for the 90's as well.

LA-1, 5, 6
MD-2 , 3, 5
MN-5
MS-1, 3, 4
NV-1

This is something I quickly drew up. I used whole counties here for simplicity's sake. Yes, its very easy to get a Romney >80% district in Utah.

(http://www.pictureshack.us/images/86893_12-18-2012_11-12-46_PM.png)

This district would have been 86.4/11.6 Romney for a PVI of R+39.

The rest of the state would have been 68/29, so I'm not sure if a second 80% district would be possible. Maybe if the red district was unpacked a bit, a second 80% district could be drawn.

I haven't actually double-checked my numbers at all yet.  I messed up and forgot to transfer Chelan County to WA-8, so it looks like WA-8 was Obama +2 with gay marriage losing slightly.  I still have WA-4 under 60% Romney (59.35%) but maybe that's wrong too somehow?

idk, just wondering brah.  No offense. 

None taken? :P "Maybe that's wrong too somehow" was meant seriously, I might have forgotten to update some other county's CD allocation

Oh, okay, got it.

Looking at states where a majority of CDs went the opposite way, we've got:

VA: Romney 7-4
WI: Romney 5-3
FL: Romney 16-11

Also MI, OH, and PA but the breakdown hasn't been confirmed.

Salt Lake County has 37.3% of Utah's population, so it would likely have its own CD under a non-gerrymandered system. The rest of Utah went for Romney 81.3%-16.6%, and if you assume the SLC CD resembles the county in terms of partisanship and turnout, the other 3 CDs would average to 77.5%-20.2% Romney, so it is likely one, potentially two, CDs over 80% Romney.

Updating my list of swing:

I'm keeping a tally of CD's that swung towards Obama that are not majority-minority or home state affected (AZ/AK):

CA - 6, 9, 10, 12-15, 19, 27, 31, 36, 47, 53 (all are white CVAP majority or plurality, CA-27 has an Asian plurality in total population and VAP; CA-17 has an Asian majority in the total pop. and a plurality in the VAP; CA-19 and CA-31 have a Latino plurality in total pop. and VAP; CA-16 and CA-41 have a Latino majority in total pop. and VAP; CA-9, CA-36, CA-47 have a Latino plurality only in the total pop.)

AL-2
FL-9 (44% Hisp, 40% white, not sure about VAP or CVAP)
LA-1, 5, 6
MD-2 , 3, 5
MA-7
MN-5
MS-1, 3, 4
NV-1
NY-6, 11, 16, 20, 21, 24, 25, 26 (6 and 16 are only white plurality)
OH-3, 9, 13, 15
OK-5
PA 13, 14
SC-2 (DKE has this swinging slightly)
VA-4, 11
WA-9 (white plurality close to 50%)
WI-4

Any comments on these...Is NY-11 the only one attributable to Sandy?

Then, I gather if all states (retroactively) allocated by to Maine or Nebraska method of an EV to the winner of each CD, the results of the EC would have been:

Romney with 274 to Obama with 264 (or 275 to 263 if Romney took NY CD-2).  

This is based on 26 states plus DC to Obama and 24 states to Romney.

What is that district so close to Wurzbach's in Texas and why was it so close even in 1922?


You can definately see the different times, and why the GOP would find themselves in such trouble beginning in the Depression. Even in OH, IN and ILL, there strongest areas are in the Northern part of the states, a dynamic that dated back to prior to the civil war, when the states were basically a tug a war between Great Lakes commerce (routed through NY) and that of New Orleans, and New York won out in the end, of course. These very same areas though have the higher concentrations of soon to be unionized labor, and hence the difficulty they would find themselves in later decades.

I also love how parts of the NY look like they do know as far as the lines are concerned, just with more and smaller districts. Especially between that of Albany and NYC, minus one district of course.

Wow, what an election.  Shortly after, everyone in America was basically thrown onto their asses by a massive economic collapse which was felt around the globe.  Citizens were frightened and angry at the fact that their leaders could do nothing to stop it.

Less gerrymandered, but their is a dark side to the clean appearence. Severe differentials in the population sizes.

With no computer generation and the power of county machines, most of the districts followed the county boundary lines, like one can clearly see in the NY and PA maps.

Anyway, gerrymanders don't have to look incredibly obvious to still be quite effective in certain situations.

I mean, does this map look so bad?

(http://www.election.demon.co.uk/stormont/NI1929.gif)

Of course the really pernicious gerrymandering concerned local government wards (where the issue was often as much 'how many seats in a multi-member ward' as the actual boundaries) but the above map is intensely political.

True... Initially, seeing districts so geographically even made me note that rural areas were much more populous at the time, but yeah, considering that equal population criteria were much laxer at that time, that probably explains it.

I would love to transfer them to DRA and put them back online for download so that people can zoom in and look around.

I've done that with the 80s maps, which I would link to if I was allowed to.

Hmm, I actually have an idea.  Do you have Microsoft Paint, or something like that?  If you do, you could transfer the maps there, zoom in, and then press "print screen".  Then you could cntrl-v that into another Paint document, thus having an enlarged version of the map.  Although that would mean that the maps wouldn't have the best resolution.  You'd probably have to fix that with some other program.

Another recap of the congressional elections that have been completed:


All maps from 1920 to 1930 were mostly drawn by Jackson.  1946, 1948, and 1952-1958 were made by realisticidealist.  1984,1988, 2004-2010 (except Texas and Georgia) were drawn by Shilly and colored by Fuzzy.   2012 and 2014 were drawn by Jackson, Miles, TJ, Nathan, and Fuzzybigfoot, and 2014 was sized up and given a cool map of NYC by Smid.

Enjoy!

So they had a re-redistricting between 1972 and 1974? Weird...

Only for California, New York, and Texas.  The rest stayed the same from 1972-1980.  ;)  I just decided on saying 1974, since that was the first year all of those maps voted together.

That's what I guessed, yeah. ;) Interesting that these States had a redistricting so quickly after the constitutionally mandated one...

Indeed.  Apart from it's little stunt with the Republicans in the 50's, it's always been pretty consistent.  The only time it was close in the last 40 years was in 1980, I think, and Norm Dicks still won by 8 points or something.

In retrospect, Democrats should have actually done this.  If Republicans could do it and keep the House for 12 of the next 16 years for Clinton having sex, think of what Democrats could have done to Bush with all that they had to work with(9/11 and questions surrounding, Iraq war, etc,).

I was going through some of the US House Election pages on wikipedia and there are errors on some of the district maps that have been posted. One of them has the fifth and seventh districts of KY colors flipped around.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_States_House_of_Representatives_elections,_1982

Another has AZ-01 as a gain in 1972, when it had been held by John J. Rhodes (R) for twenty years by that point. I think the fourth district should be colored for gain. There is also a gain colored in Western New York, that shouldn't be there and there appear to be problems with districts along the Hudson, including those of Ben Gilman and and Carleton King. 
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_States_House_of_Representatives_elections,_1972

I don't have an exhaustive list, I had five but I couldn't get this to open for several days and lost the list, but I do remember some situations where gains listed below were colored as holds and vice versa. Of course it might be the information below that is incorrect and the map is fine.

In general though the improvements on these pages is amazing compared to eight years ago when I first started fequenting these pages and most had nothing but gain/loss maps and a chart listing the increase/decrease in members for each party.

Thanks!

Skimmed through the last few pages, it really is remarkable how West Virginia has changed over the past 15-20 years.

Indeed, especially the Southern part of the state.  Pretty crazy how a place that was 30 points in favor of Clinton shifted to being 2-1 Romney.

Fascinating to see these old district lines - so many districts in the Midwest (3 in each of the Dakotas!) and so few in the Sun Belt. I suppose I was generally aware of these trends in population growth, but it's really interesting to look at the tiny districts across the Great Plains. Nicely done!

It's amazing to see that Pennsylvania had 36 seats, and California just 11.

Prohibition seemed to have a couple seats before 1920, which is kinda interesting. There was even a Socialist Rep.

2010 was the last nail in the coffin for what was left of the Solid South at the House level (in the same way 2000 was for the Presidency and 2004 for the Senate).

New Hampshire must be wrong. Bush must have won the eastern district.

2010 was the last nail in the coffin for what was left of the Solid South at the House level (in the same way 2000 was for the Presidency and 2004 for the Senate). From an analytically perspective, it's pretty fascinating to see that the aftershocks of events that happened in the mid-60s are still being felt to this day.

I remember 1994, and it was perceived as the nail in coffin. Democrats wan in 2006 and 2008 many seats that were perceived as unreachable over a decade.

Democrats in 2006 regained only a tiny share of the seats they had lost in 1994 though. And whenever Democrats take back the House, it will be with much fewer southern seats than they held in 2008. This is an overarching trend.

1994 was more like putting the door on the coffin than the last nail in it.  Before then the Congressional Democrats still retained the clear advantage in the South even if it wasn't 'solid.'    It looks like in the Deep South states the Democrats actually still won more seats in 1994 than in 2006.

None of the old districts in NC would have voted differently in '12 than they did in '08:

You mean the people of Massachusetts was massively swayed by the guy McGovern choose to replace his original running mate who had to step down amid controversy? :P

I guess oil changed Alaska, but after what happened during the Revolution of 1954, people should have known Hawaii was going to be Democratic.

Another recap of the congressional elections that have been completed:


All maps from 1920 to 1930 were mostly drawn by Jackson.  1946, 1948, and 1952-1958 were made by realisticidealist.  1984,1988, 2004-2010 (except Texas and Georgia) were drawn by Shilly and colored by Fuzzy.   2012 and 2014 were drawn by Jackson, Miles, TJ, Nathan, and Fuzzybigfoot, and 2014 was sized up and given a cool map of NYC by Smid.  2016 map was refined by M&M.  Shapefiles for 1982 were provided by MilesC56 and shua, and orgionally came from here: http://cdmaps.polisci.ucla.edu/

2012 was worked on by Jackson, MilesC56, TJ, Nathan, and Fuzzybigfoot.  2016 was done by the same, except edited by Jerryarkansas and digitally enhanced by M&M. 


Final note: New York uses 1969(?) lines in the 1968 Presidential Map.

2014 House elections by county in Washington State

Democrats combined only got 51.6% of the vote statewide.  Pierce County was the bellwether this cycle being 51% Democrat, with Dems getting 68% in King, 56% in Snohomish, and 59% in Thurston.   WA-4 was between two Republicans, which is why you see so many 90%+ GOP counties in the central part of the state and such.

WV House vote by county:

(http://uselectionatlas.org/FORUM/GALLERY/4344_16_11_14_3_25_00.png)

I understand Rahall would do well there, but he's at 78% (!) in Lincoln County. Its possible, as fairly few votes were cast there (about 2K), but I'm wondering if thats a tabulation error on the SOS site.

If true, 78% would be a huge improvement even from 2012 (http://uselectionatlas.org/FORUM/index.php?action=gallery;sa=view&id=7824) (he got 61% there).

Even if only 1% of the population had been native American, it would have shown up.  Maybe it was an error on the part of the book?

Oh yes, North Seattle and Bellevue!  Just barely, but he did.  Kind of funny to think that Seattle itself was only a few more point Democratic than the nation as a whole (I think LBJ won the city 63%-36%, or something like that).  Now it's over 60% points more Dem (in terms of margin of victory, that is).

I also observe, Goldwater won less than 20% in both of Little Rhody's two congressional districts.

Indeed, it was divided between the 1st and 7th congressional districts.

I'd love to see a breakdown of Dems elected to Hoover seats in 1932.

I figure DE-AL, NY-33, ME-02, and ME-03.  I can't tell what else.  Maybe some NJ and CT seats?

This has been a personal project of mine for nearly a decade, on and off.  Using my lifetime Atlas membership along with other sources has opened doors to a lot of information.  The current version is somewhat revised, as I'm now trying to include sources.  Typically, the district description is easy enough to come by, and the Atlas has the county-level data.

Sadly I'm not sure how I could post it, logistically speaking.  Bit of a technotwit here!

I can see about sending it to you personally, as an email attachment, if that would help.

You guys remember Kentucky's 7th district, right? It's notorious for being the only congressional district in the state to support Mondale over Reagan (51%-49%) in the 1984 Presidential Election.  The district was abolished during the 1990's redistricting, with all but two of its counties going into the new 4th and 5th districts.  However, if the old 7th had existed in 2004, it would have supported Bush by a narrow 2 point margin (maybe even less, see below).   Kerry was the last Democrat to be competitive here; in 2008, Republican presidential candidate John McCain won the old 7th by about 15 points.

(http://uselectionatlas.org/FORUM/GALLERY/5422_23_07_15_9_56_41.png)

By the way,the old 7th only splits one county (Letcher), but I don't have any specific precinct data for 2004, so I just used county at-large results in my final tabulation.  Thus, my numbers have an obvious (but minimal) margin of error.

Come to think of it, I wonder how Conway and Grimes both did in KY-7 in their recent senate bids.  It looks like Conway won it, and I'm guessing Grimes lost it like 62%-36% or something.

I may be able to save you a trip.  I have a copy of a 1949 Congressional Directory I use for district descriptions.

AL-09 is Jefferson County.

According to the Directory, 1948 was the first year the state used districts, with CD01 being Maricopa and 2 everything else.

CA-23 you correctly have as San Diego County.

CO-01 you also have correct, being Denver County.

CT-01 is Hartford County.

DE-AL is easy!

The Indiana seats 1 and 11 are correct in Lake and Marion counties, respectively.

KY-03 is correct in Jefferson County.

MN-04 is also correct, Ramsey County.

NV-AL: see Delaware. :)

NJ-06 is Union County

NY-36 is correct in Onondaga County.

OH-12 is also good, in Franklin County.

OR-03 correct as Multnomah County.

The PA districts are good, just add PA-16 is Montgomery County.

The TN seats are correct with 6 being Davidson and 10 Shelby.

The TX ones are correct also, 5 is Dallas, 8 Harris and 20 Bexar.

I'll get to OK in it's own post.

Ok, time for OK.

1 is the northeastern district
2 is east central
3 is southeast
8 is northwest
The others, going from east to west are 4, 5, 6, 7.

Thank you, all your results have been added.  I also took the liberty of guessing how several other districts voted (they are in lighter shades as compared to confirmed results).

1992 Presidential Election, Results by Congressional District

Go to the gallery to see it in better detail.  Or you can right click on it, than click view.  ;)


Edit: Oregon 2 corrected.  

One piece of trivia. MI-10 which was "R" was represented by uber populist democrat David Bonior of all people. That's hard to believe these days. He represented a swing district (Eastern Macomb, St Clair) with a large number of Reagan Democrats. He also beat Candice Miller once in a run, who is now the (retiring) Congresswoman there today.

Okay, I organized all the nationwide congressional election maps into a single post (and in order from the earliest to most recent elections).  

All maps from 1920 to 1930 were mostly drawn by Jackson.  1946, 1948, and 1952-1958 were made by realisticidealist.  1984,1988, and 2004 (except Texas and Georgia) were drawn by Shilly and colored by Fuzzy.  

Enjoy!

Good work and I know this is an old thread, but one correction. MI-8 under the 90's lines was dem held in 1998 for congress. Stabenow had a weak opponent that was doubleflanked making it an easier than expected race. (Ingham, Livingston, parts of Washtenaw/Genesee)
92 - Bob Carr (D)
94 - Dick Chrysler (R)
96/98 - Debbie Stabenow (D)
2000 through 2012 election - Mike Rogers (R)

This has probably been asked before, but what happened to Democrats in Wasington state in 1994? Even for the year, it looks like a particularly bad beating...

First off, Enslee was an easy target considering how he voted for Clinton's tax hikes and assault weapons ban while being in a district (WA-4) that went to H.W. Bush 42%-35%.   Foley's loss in WA-5 can be attributed to his opposition to term limits (that was controversial at the time, and the fact that Foley had served in the house for 30 years only increased that resentment against him).  Cantwell and Kreidler (WA-1 and WA-9 respectively) were elected in districts that mainly covered Seattle's suburbs, areas which had not yet solidified into the Democratic strongholds that they are today and were thus swept up in the wave.  Finally, voters in WA-3 had staled on incumbent Jolene Unsoeld, and Al Smith's retirement in WA-2 gave Republicans an easy pickup opportunity.  

So yeah, it was pretty much a perfect storm.  :P

I updated the 2016 Democratic Primary by CD map btw.  I used some of the data from this source (http://bl.ocks.org/alecrajeev/raw/d493b7c79456c3987d73/d6314a005f253155d5b47af9e0b7f79f6e2f5a02/) that we've already seen, but comparing their data to the county results I came to the conclusion that they may have accidentally mixed up their results for California and New Jersey.  In addition, their results for Pennsylvania are inconsistent with the ones cataloged by Good Club (they show Bernie Sanders only winning one congressional district in Pennsylvania, while our preexisting map has him winning 3).  Thus I decided to keep our current map unless it is proved wrong otherwise by a more credible source.  In addition, they blatantly mixed up the totals for Sanders and Clinton in Arizona (for those of you who don't know, Hillary won every congressional district in the state, not Bernie.)

A lot of uniformly 55-60% Clinton urban areas. And the urban areas that did vote Sanders were heavily divided between pockets of white ethnic, hipsters, and particular subsets of Hispanic and Asians, so not very geographically concentrated. Overall I was surprised to see how little difference there was between the Bay area and LA/Orange/San Diego.

And the urban areas that did vote Sanders were heavily divided between pockets of white ethnic, hipsters, and particular subsets of Hispanic and Asians, so not very geographically concentrated. Overall I was surprised to see how little difference there was between the Bay area and LA/Orange/San Diego.
Also remember that this is still early on.  IIRC like 5 of the districts that Hillary leads in are only like 51 to 53 percent towards her.  The results will tighten and most likely flip a few of the districts.  I mean 2 million more ballots are still out.  Not sure if total ballots or just Dem and Unaffiliated ballots.

Fuzzy, I have a map that I have been working on as well, if you want to see it.  Also, in Texas, you have to use the Senate districts instead of the Congressional ones, unless you somehow got them by congressional distinct.  If not, my map has the results broken down by senate district.

Yes, I would love to have a look at it.  Do you have New Jersey, by any chance?  
No Jersey results, I'm checking Green Papers Everyday looking for them.

I've made all the available updates to our 2016 Democratic map.  Bernie Sanders was actually able to flip three more congressional districts (CA-13, CA-20, and CA-46).  There are a handful more where he's only down a couple points, and with 1.2 million ballots still out he'll probably flip a couple more (CA-34 would be his best bet).  Still no accurate data for New Jersey.

New Jersy denies the do it by congressional district either.  They do it by Senate districts as well.  However instead of doing it one by one, they pair them up, so it is 20 districts in total instead of the 40 found in Jersey.

The Maryland Senate primary. They only break the election day vote down by precinct, which is what this is. I was gonna estimate for the early/absentee votes, but as it is, the result here lines up almost perfectly with the overall vote (Van Hollen +14).

Here's the election-day vote. It was slightly less favorable to the SSM side, voting for it with 51.6% instead of the 52.4% it passed overall with.

I'd say MD-04 voted for it with the early/absentee votes factored in.

A majority for Clinton in VA-10 without carrying VA-02 is interesting.  Comstock has to be dreading a Trump midterm.
If I were her I'd "roll the dice" and run against Kaine rather than for reelection. But obviously, she's an underdog in both cases.

P.S. I believe that VA-02 shifted 2 or 3 points to the right as a result of the mid-decade redistricting.

Tulsa trended hard Democrat, as did OKC. The Oklahoma City district could probably give if Steve Russell retires and someone other than McCaffrey gives way to a less controversial Democrat and Tom Guild gives way to a less stupid Democrat.

OK-1 has Tulsa, but it also has much much more conservative areas dragging it to the 30 point Trump margin line. This one is going to be safe forever - although Bridenstine is retiring in 2018 because of his term limits pledge.

That's a pretty hefty gap. When was the last time a two-district state had a bigger disparity in Presidential results? In recent memory, almost all two-district states have had their districts vote very similarly. Maybe sometime when Nevada had two districts in the 80s and 90s?

Back in 2000, NV-1 voted 54%-42% for Gore while NV-2 voted 55%-41% for Bush.  That's the most recent election I can recall with that kind of discrepancy between districts.

A poster on DKE has found that Hillary apparently carried TX-07.

TX-7 was 59%-38% Romeny in 2012, so if that's true....wow.  I knew Hillary would probably be within single digits by looking at the overall results for Harris County, but outright win it?  Man, that's insane.

That's also a rather epic swing for Poe's seat.

I'd be very interested in seeing the numbers for TX-22 (Olson), TX-32 (Sessions), and TX-27 (Farenthold). Out of all the R-held seats, TX-32 was Obama's second best district (After TX-23). If Hillary really did exceedingly well in urban/suburban Texas, she might have carried TX-32 as well.

Mr Phips has done the tallies for a few other districts as well, with Clinton barely flipping PA-7 and holding onto NY-24, and Trump flipping NY-18.  Also, I personally calculated that Clinton flipped KS-3 (which is actually pretty easy since it only splits one county) :P.

It completely varies by state; there's no one source. Mostly you get it through the state's Secretary of State. Texas and Ohio have not released precinct data yet. Ohio will likely release it all in one place at some point, but Texas may or may not.
