United States presidential election in New York, 1904
|Elections in New York State|
The 1904 United States presidential election in New York took place on November 8, 1904. All contemporary 45 states were part of the 1904 United States presidential election. New York voters chose 39 electors to the Electoral College, which selected the president and vice president.
New York was won by the Republican nominees, incumbent President Theodore Roosevelt of New York and his running mate incumbent Vice President Charles W. Fairbanks of Indiana. Roosevelt and Fairbanks defeated the Democratic nominees, Chief Judge of the New York Court of Appeals Alton B. Parker of New York and his running mate Senator Henry G. Davis of West Virginia. Also in the running was the Socialist Party candidate, Eugene V. Debs, who ran with Ben Hanford.
Roosevelt carried New York State with 53.13% of the vote to Parker's 42.28%, a victory margin of 10.85%. Debs finished a distant third, receiving 2.28% of the vote in the state.
New York weighed in for this election as about 8% more Democratic than the national average.
Being the home state of both major party candidates in 1904, New York State's results were relatively close despite Roosevelt's nationwide landslide. The state was substantially more Democratic than the nation primarily due to Alton Parker's popularity in the New York City area, with Parker winning majorities in Manhattan, The Bronx, and Queens, and winning a plurality on Staten Island.
