Socialist Results for 2016 Election

Finally.

Here are the results if only socialist candidates are considered — whether or not their party has the word “socialist” in the name.

Gray states either had no candidate or any candidates received zero ballot* votes.

You’ve seen that one before.

*I should mention I don’t have any data for write-in candidates.

Here are the results if we don’t include Jill Stein or the Green Party.

LEGEND (obsolete but matches above)

  • LIGHT GREEN = Alyson Kennedy
  • LIGHT BLUE = Emidio Soltysik
  • DARK BLUE = Gloria Estela La Riva
  • DARK GREEN = Chris Keniston
  • PURPLE = Monica Moorehead
  • PINK = Michael A. Maturen
  • YELLOW = Lynn S. Kahn

Please note that not all candidates are on all ballots. Most of the 31 candidates for President who were on a ballot were on few states’ ballots. Ooh — there’s an idea for another map! Showing which states each candidate was on the ballot … and I’ll include write-in status. Hmm … I wonder if OpenElections has write-in data. If they don’t, I can totally volunteer!

Anyway, the “problem” isn’t just a lack of unity but also a lack of numbers in the respective organizations — in both individuals and states covered.

Often, a single candidate is running in multiple parties across as many states.

Sometimes, there’s lack of unity within a single party — multiple candidates across as many states.

Anyway, here are the other options that will be available soon (along with an updated legend):
