          I mean, the original insane blow out (with over 500 electoral votes in play) was FDR over Landon in 1936. It was 523-8...

              55-19 needs more Oklahoma punishment. This would be my vote for the OG:

                Trump: 48, Clinton: 28

                Trump: 63, Bernie: 28

                  Because Nixon is the black sheep and Saint Ronny is the golden child.

                  Nixon beat McGovern by 23 points nationally. Reagan beat Mondale by 18 points.

                  LBJ had a similar route in 1964 though the South staying strong for the segregationist hurt him in the EC.

                  The Dark Horse Gold Standard of the last century is Harding's 26 point route in 1920, though only winning 404 EVs.

                  I think the fact that the EV count can vary so wildly despite having similar popular vote counts is more proof the system is stupid and should be scrapped.
