'Of those 60 districts, according -to a Congressional Quarterly survey, all but 14 were located iti- ttfe southern states. Gold- watefr's biggest wins were in Alabama (8 districts), where President' Johnson was not on the "ballot, Florida and Georgia (7 districts in each), Louisiana, Mississippi and South Carolina (5 -districts in each) and Virginia- (4 districts.) -•President Johnson, on the oth- er'iand, was the victor in 375 Congressional districts, winning a solid majority in every region 6T the country (including the South). The breakdowns: Congressional Districts Carried ••• •• Johnson Goldwater while Goldwater led Republican House candidates in just 161 dis East South Midwest West National 122 73 119 61 375 0 ticts: Presidential Candidates To ojisTp Party's House *•'• Candidates Johnson Goldwater East , South Midwest' West National Ahead 9824 106 • 46 274 Ahead 24 95 19 23 161 The South was the only region in which Goldwater ran better in .relation to other Republicans than Johnson did in relation to other Democrats. But of the 95 Southern districts in which Goldwater is listed as leading his party's House candidate, there were 37 in which the Republicans actually had no one contesting the House seat. Eighteen Republicans actually won election to the House from the South. But in those 108 46 j districts, Goldwater ran ahead of — and thus presumably help- 60 pockets of Goldwater strength outside the South were ~six districts in Southern California;- including both in Orange J -County, five in the suburban areas of Chicago, 111., and one each , 4» Arizona, Idaho and Nebraska. „ Goldwater failed to carry a sin• -gle congressional district in the \ , entire Northeastern United States. ,By contrast, former Vice President Richard M. Nixon, the 1960 jJeRublican Presidential candidate had carried 228 Congressional districts to 206 for the • Democratic candidate, John F. Kennedy. Nixon won 53 Eastern seats, 47 in the South, 93 in the .'. Midwest and 35 in the West. .„- The 1964 election also witness- "t ed a major shift in the typical ,£ postwar pattern of Presidential r. candidates in relation to their ."j! party. In 1948, 1952, 1956 and • 1960, the Republican presiden- , i tial -candidate had always run -/ substantially ahead of his party's House candidates while the . .Democratic presidential candidate,.trailed his party's House extenders. President Johnson, however, became the first Democratic Presidence since Franklin D. Roosevelt to run ahead of his •party's ticket. The national to- ed — only seven of the victorious GOP contenders: five in Alabama, one in Georgia and one in Mississippi. The. other 11 Reran better in their districts than Goldwater did. Outside the south, most of the districts in w 'h 1 c h Goldwater ran stronger than the GOP House candidate were districts which weak or unknown candidates were running on the Republican ticket. In fact, Goldwater ran ahead of only one Northern Republican House candidate who was actually elected: Rep. George V. Hansen (R. Idaho): Everyone of tho other 122 victorious Northern GOP candidates ran stronger than Goldwater, thus appearing to win despite rather than because of, Goldwater's presence on the ticket. By contrast, Nixon in 1960 and run ahead of GOP House candidates (including most of those who were elected) in. 311 districts. Kennedy outpaced Democratic House candidates in only 134 districts. Democrats won easy majorities in the House in both the 1960 and 1964 elections. But in 1960 they lost 21 seats they had controlled in the previous Congress. In 1964 the Democrats gained 38 House seats, for a new margin of 295-140 in their favor, Rcady To Knock Down Another Pillar? STATES felGHTS-i American Way By TOM AANDERSON A newspaper .wiresetviee re* ports that "twenty.two of Alabama's most influential bust* fiess groups, possibly indicating a crack in the state's hard line" segregation stand, today called upon the people of Alabama to obey the civil fights law: 'In the light of recent developments in Alabama, we feel that the business community has an obligation to speak out for what it believes to be right'.., ." And what is it that the bus! ness community feels to be "right" Making a profit. That is almost the only thing most of the business community is interested in. I have had long experiences first hand with the business community. And my con empt for it is collossal. I say this in spite of the fact that I have been actively opposing Socialism and promoting free en terprise for 31 years; and in spite of the fact that I have owned my own business for 18 years. The businessmen who made the above pronouncement are ananymous. That's par for t h e course. They took their stand through the ChamDers of Com merce and various manufacturers associations. They are petrified at the mere thought that the federal government plans to cut off federal aid and federal loans to al' states, communities and individuals who "discriminate." They are frightened sick at the threats throughout the nation to boycott Alabama products. So, what's new? At the Battle of Little Rock, "Main Street' was the first to capitulate.
