Map of the 1904 Election




Benjamin Tillman/Francis Cockrell (Dixie): 169 Electoral Votes, 31.6% of the Popular Vote

Robert LaFolette/William R. Hearst (NP): 139 Electoral Votes, 31.4% of the Popular Vote

Joseph Cannon/Henry Burnham (R): 168 Electoral Votes, 31.3% of the Popular Vote

Grover Cleveland*/John Kern* (Safe and Sane Democratic): 0 Electoral Votes, 5.7% of the Popular Vote

*Neither Cleveland nor kern accpeted nomination, but a group of Gold Democrats met after the withdrawal of Parker to nominate a new ticket. A majority of these votes came from the Northeast and the state of Ohiop (thus its voting for LaFolette).

The National Progressive ticket did much poorer than expected due mainly to voter disenfranchisement with the election. The turnout was much lower than expected.

Two Points:
1. I hadn't intended to have Tillman run for election, but rather a strategy more like the unpledged electors of the 1960 election.
2. You need to correct your map PB.  Hearst can't be elected VP in the Senate if the Progressives come in third in the EC.
