The 1952 United States presidential election in Illinois took place on November 4, 1952, as part of the 1952 United States presidential election. Illinois voters chose twenty seven representatives, or electors, to the Electoral College, who voted for president and vice president.[3]

Illinois was won by Columbia University President Dwight D. Eisenhower (RNew York), running with Senator Richard Nixon, with 54.84 percent of the popular vote, against Adlai Stevenson (DIllinois), running with Senator John Sparkman, with 44.94 percent of the popular vote. Despite Stevenson’s popularity as Governor of his home state, he would lose Illinois twice by double digits and even lose his home county (Cook) – which no Democrat since except George McGovern has lost.[4]

Eisenhower was the first Republican presidential candidate ever to carry Dixie-leaning Union County,[4] which alongside his triumphs in Indiana’s Brown County and Dubois County[5] meant that every antebellum free state county had as of 1952 voted for a Republican presidential candidate at least once.[a]

Notes

  1. ^ These three counties, and Wells County, Indiana which flipped Republican in 1944, were the only antebellum free state counties to vote Democratic in all three landslide losses in 1920 (only 41 counties outside antebellum slave states voted for Cox), 1924 and 1928.
