Lincoln Wins by a Landslide

In a not too surprising turn of events Abraham Lincoln has won the Arlington House mock election as part of the Election of 1860 anniversary program held October 16. What could be considered surprising is that the "anti-Lincoln" vote was fairly strong.

Lincoln received 176 votes

Bell 51 votes

Breckinridge 37 votes

Douglas 36 votes
