Data SourcesPresidential Elections Since 1789. All other sources have slightly lower numbers but the reason for the discrepancy is unclear. Burnham, using the official returns in the state archives, gives these numbers: R-76,384; D-72,245; Scattering-6. Svend Peterson has a completely different set of numbers which Stephen Lorant used.
