Background

In 1972 Illinois had, like the rest of the nation outside Massachusetts and the District of Columbia, voted strongly for Richard Nixon who carried every county except college-dominated Jackson, although Democrat George McGovern ran 3 percent above his national vote percentage. In the following Democratic primaries, the divided party would give a plurality in Illinois to favorite son Adlai Stevenson III, with Georgia Governor Jimmy Carter second.[1]

By the second week of September polls were showing Carter ahead of incumbent President Gerald Ford by 14 percentage points, but running much weaker in the emerging “Rust Belt” industrial states[2] – his lead in Illinois would be estimated at four percentage points.[3] A few days later another poll had Ford already ahead in the “Land of Lincoln”,[4] but another poll had the incumbent President narrowly behind.[5]

Defeated Republican primary candidate and future President Ronald Reagan helped Ford in his fall campaign in Illinois,[6] although Carter preceded him in visiting the state – doing so for the first time on September 24.[7] Ford’s running mate Bob Dole followed Carter to the state and said that Carter had “3 positions on every issue” during a tour through Rock Island, Quincy and Decatur. At this time it was also thought that ford was helped by the strong GOP gubernatorial campaign of James R. Thompson.[8]

At the beginning of October, Illinois was viewed as “too close to call”,[9] before Carter paid a second visit to the state – with the support of Chicago Mayor Richard Daley viewed essential to his chances of carrying the state’s electoral votes due to the coolness of the northern and central parts of the state toward a Southern Evangelical Democrat.[10] Carter would subsequently move ahead, but the state remained very close as election day neared, with South Side black voters considered a critical aspect of Carter’s hopes.[11]

Vote

Gerald Ford won Illinois with 50.10 percent of the vote,[12] but lost the general election to Jimmy Carter of Georgia. Ford’s win was due to his large majorities in the traditionally Republican collar counties, chiefly DuPage, which he won by a margin ten thousand votes greater than his statewide total margin. Carter did well in Cook County and Dixie Southern Illinois, but his majorities there were much smaller than New Deal era Democrats had won. This is the last election where a Democrat won the White House without carrying Illinois, and also the most recent presidential election when Illinois would vote more Republican than the nation.
