Though the outcome of Wisconsin’s primaries look pretty predictable, there is still an interesting data story to watch. It would be fascinating to see an overlay of Trump’s strongest counties/precincts with the areas where George Wallace experienced his greatest success in the ’64 Democratic Primary. Here’s the problem: I haven’t been able to find the data from ’64.
Anyone know of a source somewhere? All my usual goto’s have failed.
Here’s a nice backgrounder on Wallace’s surprise success in Wisconsin, Indiana, and Maryland in the ’64 race.
Postscript: Here’s a breakdown of the counties where Wallace scored his biggest margins of support in the ’64 Democratic Primary.
Green Lake 40
Ones to watch tonight include “crucial” Waukesha County, along with the notorious Washington, Ozaukee and Milwaukee. Big thanks to everyone who pitched in to look for data and MassDem who found the golden nugget.
***And a second postscript – Ted Cruz is blowing out Trump in the counties around Milwaukee where Wallace scored some of his biggest wins. No real correlation to speak of here.
