ⓘ 1964 United States presidential election in New Hampshire

The 1964 United States presidential election in New Hampshire took place on November 5, 1964, as part of the 1964 United States presidential election, which was held throughout all 50 states and D.C. Voters chose 4 representatives, or electors to the Electoral College, who voted for president and vice president.

New Hampshire was overwhelmingly defeated democratic candidates, incumbent President Lyndon Johnson was from Texas and his running mate Senator Hubert H. Humphrey of Minnesota. Johnson and Humphrey defeated Republican nominee Senator Barry Goldwater from Arizona and his running mate, Congressman William E. Miller of new York.

Johnson took 63.89% of the vote Goldwater 36.11%, a margin of 27.78%.

This staunch conservative Barry Goldwater was widely perceived in the liberal northeast of the US, as right wing extremist, he had voted against the civil rights act of 1964, and the Johnson campaign portrayed him as a warmonger who as President would provoke a nuclear war. Thus, Goldwater carried out especially weakly in liberal northeastern States like new Hampshire, and for the first time in history a presidential candidate from the Democratic party held all the North-Eastern state in 1964. Not only Johnson to win every North-East of the state, but he won with landslides of over 60% of the votes, including new Hampshire.

Despite statewide to defeat Johnson, he did not sweep every County in the state of new Hampshire. Carroll County had long been the most Republican County in new Hampshire, voting more than 70% of Republicans in 1960 and more than 80% of the Republicans in 1952 and 1956. In 1964, the County Carroll once again be the most Republican County in the state, voting 55-45 Goldwater even as any other County in the state voted strongly for Johnson. Carroll County was the only County not only is Goldwater in new Hampshire, he was the only Goldwater won the County in all of New England and the North-Eastern United States outside of Pennsylvania. Despite the crushing loss in new Hampshire will be the strongest government Goldwater in the North-East.

Johnson won the rest of the state, a crucial field, with his decisive victories in the new Internet-the Democratic base of the district Hillsborough County, Strafford County, and Coos County, which had long been democratic districts, Republican state, while other States finally joined them in voting Democratic in 1964. It was the first time Sullivan County voted for a democratic presidential candidate since Franklin D. Roosevelt in 1944, for the first time Belknap, Grafton, Merrimack and Rockingham counties have voted Democratic since Woodrow Wilson in 1912, when the GOP was fatally divided, and for the first time Cheshire County voted Democratic because a vote for new Hampshire native Franklin pierce in 1852.

The strongest victory for Johnson was in a rural location and French-canadian Coos County in the Northern part of the state where Johnson won with 71.1% of the vote.

This may be the last chance until 2008, when the Democratic party won the County Belknap and will last until 1996, when the democratic candidate for US President won Rockingham County. New Hampshire as a whole, together with Cheshire, Grafton, Merrimack and Sullivan counties will never vote democratic until 1992.

Johnson won a decisive nationwide landslide with 61.05% of the vote, the results are usually Republican-leaning new Hampshire made the state more than 5% more democratic than the average in the elections of 1964. Only in the 1920 Republican landslide, when the state is the second-best James M. Cox-free state before the war despite the fact that the lost 20%, and new Hampshire voted more democratic relative to the nation.
