Why Some States Produced more Vice Presidents than Others

While New York may be the most populous state due to New York City, it does raise some questions when looking at the analysis of where Vice Presidents and their Presidential counterparts came from. Currently, the data would not make sense as New York and Indiana are not battleground states, and they do not provide any beneficial pairing if the person themselves is of good standing. In this case, it may be easy to start pondering whether the list of elected candidates should be more evenly spread out. The answer lies in successful pairings of political strategies. For example, Trump (New York) and Pence (Indiana) in 2016 were true to an old traditional strategy of winning over the votes.

This was a common practice used from the end of the Civil War until WW1. New York and Indiana were considered the two key states that swung to either side of the bipartisan election. Most of the time, if the presidential election is won in these two states, they will be elected to the Presidency. Ballots containing this pairing in the past were extremely common. After WW1, this practice became much more uncommon, as the states of the union became well known for their political leanings. New York and Indiana were slowly becoming less and less important as swing states, as higher metropolitan areas would most commonly vote for a Democratic government. Although the pairing is obsolete, the Trump/Pence combination demonstrates that the pairing is still as effective today.
