The Native Son Presidential Candidate: The Carter Vote in Georgia

Synopsis

This pioneering work offers a theoretical perspective on two new variables that shape presidential voting behavior in America. It does this through an exploration of the impact that native son presidential candidate Jimmy Carter had upon his home state electorate in Georgia. The work fully documents the electoral support that Carter received in his twelve elections in the state of Georgia and the support he garnered for his former vice president in the 1984 presidential election. It concludes that native son presidential candidates do affect voting behavior in their states and that this behavior sometimes extends throughout the entire region.
