All 10 Louisiana votes to the Electoral College
The 1952 United States presidential election in Louisiana took place on November 4, 1952, as part of the 1952 United States presidential election. Louisiana voters chose ten representatives, or electors, to the Electoral College, who voted for president and vice president.
Louisiana was won by Adlai Stevenson (D–Illinois), running with Senator John Sparkman, with 52.92% of the popular vote, against Columbia University President Dwight D. Eisenhower (R–New York), running with Senator Richard Nixon, with 47.08% of the popular vote. As of the 2016 presidential election[update], this is the last election in which Ouachita Parish, Union Parish, and LaSalle Parish voted for the Democratic candidate. This is the most recent election in which the official Democratic candidate would carry the state without winning the Presidency, (although it would be 1968 when the Republican candidate would last win the Presidency without carrying Louisiana).
