State-by-state population data: http://www.census.gov/population/www/censusdata/files/table-16.pdf

Popular & electoral vote data, as always: www.uselectionatlas.org

Obviously, there's wikipedia for a fairly simple summary. As for issues, I'd say:

Slavery (obviously)

Tariffs

Central Bank (the recently demised Banks of the United States, Van Buren's proposal for a Fed-style central bank)

Expansion

Texas

Indian Tribes

Panic of 1837 (? Not sure if this is really an "issue" per se, or just the economy should be lousy, thus hurting Van Buren.)

Internal Improvements

Presidential Powers

Harrison didn't like campaigning on issues, though, preferring to run on character. Don't know how to simulate that, though.
