Fun Facts – Landslide Elections

This is a post for fun reasons. I always remember the 1984 landslide of the Ronald Reagan era but I recently discovered that wasn’t the biggest landslide election in history.

The biggest occurred in the election of 1936 involving FDR (Franklin Delano Roosevelt). Additionally, FDR was so popular that he is the reason they created a presidential term limit.

This is Reagan in 1984.

Alf Landon won 2 states but the electoral votes added up to less than what Walter Mondale got in 1984.
