This is the map I came up with after studying the results from the 1960 election, as well as comparisons to 1956. It is a bit shocking that Alaska and Hawaii were so narrow (Nixon actually won the first count in Hawaii), and I don't think anyone could imagine Maryland, California, Illinois, West Virginia (more recent), or plenty of other states on this map as battlegrounds today.

Edit: Forgot to add south carolina to that list as well.

I can only image how crazy campaigning would be in 2016 if there were this many swing states.

It is very important to preserve tradition, but if we wallow in it too much we will never move forward.

It would be great.  Campaigns would actually be about developing and delivering a palatable, broad-based, centrist national message instead of data mining and driving up base turnout in only a handful of states.

AR went to Kennedy by 7 (50-43) and was widely considered to be a major bellwether. Make that 29!

Here would be 2016 if you count anything within 10 points of the nation as a whole as a battleground:


Or within 20 points:

Far-right social, fiscal, and neo-conservative.  Christian conservative.  My #1 goal is to overturn Roe v. Wade and end abortion worldwide.  Reaganite movement conservatism is the path forward for the GOP, not populism, nationalism, or liberal-tarianism!

Pro-immigration (secure the border and end sanctuary cities, but don't deport non-criminal illegals).

Returned to GOP avatar since Trump mostly defunded PP via executive action.

North Dakota, South Dakota, Nebraska, Kansas, Oklahoma, were not competitive in 1960. Nixon won all of them by landslides. Except North Dakota, the others made up 4 of his 5 best states (with the other one being Vermont).
