      Needed to Win - 72,510     Roosevelt-D       Dewey-R


     ***1 = South Carolina (Group D, above)
            Roosevelt was the only named candidate to have at least 5.00% of
            South Carolina's total popular vote, so he received all 3,000 of
            South Carolina's Electoral Points.

            7.54% of this state's popular vote was for a choice called
            "Southern Democrat", which did not have a named candidate.
            Apparently this choice was for unpledged electors.

           11.77% of this state's popular vote was for a choice called
           "Texas Regulars",  which did not have a named candidate.
           Apparently this choice was for unpledged electors.
