In 1884, relatively popular President Chester Arthur, who ascended to the office when President Garfield died, failed to receive the Republican Nomination and former Speaker and Secretary Blaine failed to defeat Cleveland in the Presidential Election. However, Secretary of War and the only Garfield Cabinet member Arthur kept, Robert Todd Lincoln, was seen by many as a top pick for Vice President even if he didn't want the job. Lincoln's son did hold a personal loyalty to Arthur due to what I just said, so had Arthur been nominated at the 1884 convention, Robert would've accepted the VP Nomination. Dem ticket is unchanged, however. What does the electoral map look like and the PV? What's the 3 closest states?
