by a landslide margin of 31.35 percentage points. The Republicans at this time were associated with the booming economy of the 1920s while Smith was associated with the corruption of Tammany Hall. Despite losing the state, Smith flipped three majority-Catholic counties that voted for Calvin Coolidge
Calvin Coolidge
in 1924 and had been consistently Republican during the “System of 1896” into the Democratic column: Elk, Lackawanna, and Luzerne.[1] This came with losing the four counties – all dominated by profoundly anti-Catholic Appalachian Protestants[2] – that voted for John W. Davis
