Up Front -- Convention Report '96: THE LIST

ELECTORAL MATH

From 1968 through 1988, the GOP benefited from its 21 "lock" states. This bloc was vital to victories in five of the six Presidential races. Then, in 1992, Clinton took nine lock states. If Dole can regain them --especially California--and win George Bush's '92 states, he'll have 286 electoral votes, with 270 needed for victory.Return to top
