Nov 2010 Elections: More states elected third party and independent nominees to office than any year since 1922

from Ballot Access News
More States Elected Non-Major Party Nominees to Federal and State Office in 2010 Than in Any Previous Year Since 1922

November 19th, 2010

In the November 2010 election, eleven states elected people to federal or state office who were not nominees of either the Democratic Party or the Republican Party.  This is the largest number of such states since 1922, when there were fourteen such states.

The eleven states in 2010 are:  Alabama, Alaska, Georgia, Kentucky, Maine, North Carolina, Rhode Island, South Dakota, Tennessee, Vermont, and Wisconsin.  This assumes that Lisa Murkowski has been elected to the U.S. Senate.

In the 20th and 21st centuries combined, the even-numbered year with the fewest states that elected someone who wasn’t either a Democratic nominee or a Republican nominee to federal or state office was 1954, when South Carolina and Connecticut were the only such states.  The year with the most such states was 1914, when there were 24 such states.

    Yeek! The title above needs serious revision. It is definitely not true that more independent and more minor party candidates were elected this year than any year since 1922. What is true is that they were elected in more states.

  2. Single Winner District = Neanderthal Attractor

    This is not exactly something to start bragging and boasting about, either.

    It’s only about 6 am on “Normandy Beach” and “Battle of the Bulge” is still 150,000 years in the future at current pace.

    Thanks to Mr. Winger for the correction. The inside facts were correct – taken directly from his site. Apologies for the mix-up in the title I gave the post. It is now corrected.

    Thanks,

    2010 was special in lots of ways: (1) Democratic and Republican registration dropped to the lowest combined share ever; (2) more states elected someone other than a Dem nominee or a Rep nominee to federal or state office, since 1922; (3) more states have a ballot-qualified third party immediately following a midterm election, since 1918; (4) the share of the vote for the top office on the ballot for persons other than Dem & Rep nominees appears to be 5.3%, which is tied for highest since 1934; (5) more states had inclusive televised debate for Governor, US Senator, or US House-at-large, than ever before.

  5. Single Winner District = Neanderthal Attractor

    So in 76 years, according to MP Wingers’ [Libertarian] vast study on these matters…some sort of improvement has occurred.

    With the last peak ten years before WW2, there can be no celebration. There is not silver lining.

    From The USA Parliament, Inc.’ prospective, this has been a disaster, a comedy of errors…the only good news in the past 15 years, is that we’re bringing our secret weapons onshore little by little. The USA Parliament, Inc. has the secret weapons, and feel free to give me a yell if you don’t know what it is.

    We’re happy to share them for free, and show you how they work.
