Who would you vote for? What's a map look like?

I'd go with Coolidge, but both candidates would be acceptable.

I'd vote for Coolidge.  The map likely would be the same except Wisconsin for Coolidge.

Well without him the Debs Socialist Party would've ran a candidate, so I'd vote for that. Or Foster (Communist) or Johns (Socialist Labor). No way in hell I'd vote for Davis or Coolidge.

And yes, the same map with Coolidge winning Wisconsin.

I mean a shaded map. For example, there's no way Coolidge gets doesn't top 50% of the vote in South Dakota without LaFollette.

I'm not willing to do all the work of going through the percentage and making a shaded map.  But probably 80%+ of the LaFollette vote goes Republican, maybe 5% Democrat and the rest other third party/stay home.

Woah, you think 80%? That means Coolidge gets 67% of the vote.

Roaring Twenties. Great Economy. Times were good. Even if the Harding administration was corrupt, why ruin a good thing? Coolidge still would have won handily.

It wouldn't have changed much initially. Due to chaos theory, everything would be different now.

That is a little large, but not impossible.  The Dems had little-to-no appeal outside of the south in that time frame.
