Harding won in a massive landslide, taking 75.82% of the vote, while Cox took 23.25%, a Republican victory margin of 52.57%.
Vermont historically was a bastion of liberalNortheastern Republicanism, and by 1920 the Green Mountain State had gone Republican in every presidential election since the founding of the Republican Party. From 1856 to 1916, Vermont had had the longest streak of voting Republican of any state, having never voted Democratic before, and this tradition easily continued amidst the nationwide Republican landslide in 1920.
Harding swept every county in Vermont by landslide margins, taking more than 60% of the vote in all 14 of them. Harding broke 70% of the vote in 11 counties, and even broke 80% in 5 of them.
Vermont would be the third most Republican state in the union in terms of victory margin, and the second most Republican state in terms of vote share. Vermont would weigh in as over 26% more Republican than the national average in the 1920 election.
