What are (1 of) Arizona and New Mexico?


Today’s Jeopardy! results will go up on this page late afternoon, with full stats early evening. They will be seen in the comments section at the bottom of this page.


Arizona and New Mexico first entered the Union in early 1912, the last two of the contiguous 48 states, and the split of the Republicans into conservative (which ran Taft) and progressive (running Teddy Roosevelt) wings meant that Woodrow Wilson won 40 of the 48 states and 435 electoral votes (Talk about an actual electoral landslide!), in spite of only garnering 41.8% of the popular vote.

Among the states Wilson carried in 1912 included both Arizona and New Mexico, voting in their first presidential election.
