Tied Largest GOP LossEdit

Ironically, William Howard Taft tied with Alf Landon in the electoral college during their runs as president in 1912 and 1936, respectively. Both the lowest amount of electoral votes for the Republican Party in US History.

In 1912, Taft only carried eight electoral votes from Utah and Vermont. Landon also only carried eight electoral votes during the 1936 election. Along with carrying Vermont, he also carried Maine.

Should something be mentioned in the both the Taft and Landon articles to mention their loses in the electoral college in 1912 and 1936? --75.68.122.13 16:45, July 1, 2016 (UTC)Jacob Chesley the Alternate Historian

I personally don't think so. While those facts are interesting, they don't tie into anything HT has done; he didn't make mention of it in either version of Joe Steele, for example. And both Taft and Landon have been pretty minor in HT's overall canon.
My 2 cents. Others might disagree. TR (talk) 16:54, July 1, 2016 (UTC)
Others might, but I don't. It's mildly interesting, but only in an irrelevant, Booth-shot-Lincoln-in-a-theater-and-was-captured-in-a-warehouse, Oswald-shot-Kennedy-in-a-warehouse-and-was-captured-in-a-theater kind of way. Turtle Fan (talk) 19:00, July 1, 2016 (UTC)

Deletion Edit

The TWPE section should go to references.  191 is relevant.  TR (talk) 03:53, November 2, 2016 (UTC)
