Recommended Posts

This election is now up. JViking made the map. Anthony helped fix an error.

Feedback desired.

This looks very good! But might I suggest an off-by-default Whig Party, probably with a weak initial showing, to represent that the Fifth (and historically last) Whig National Convention had nominated their own candidate instead of just endorsing the Know Nothing/American ticket (many of the older die-hard party members at that convention actually did want to put their own ticket forth and not let the party die). However, with Webster and Clay both having passed away in the decade previous to that election, I'm not really certain who such a primary's frontunners would be.

Fillmore, who was the Know Nothing candidate, would have been their nominee. If I create them as a what-if 3rd party, it will be made as party, IF the Republicans and Know Nothings had never formed their own parties, which means you'd have a more unified opposition party to the Democrats.
