    Thought this was interesting:

    Top Ten Electoral College victories:
    1) George Washington (Election of 1789): 100% of the Electoral College
    2) James Monroe (Election of 1820): 99.57% of the Electoral College
    3) Franklin D. Roosevelt (Election of 1936): 98.49% of the Electoral College
    4) Ronald Reagan (Election of 1984): 97.58% of the Electoral College
    5) Richard M. Nixon (Election of 1972): 96.65% of the Electoral College
    6) Thomas Jefferson (Election of 1804): 92.05% of the Electoral College
    7) George Washington (Election of 1792): 100% of the Electoral College
    8) Abraham Lincoln (Election of 1864): 90.99% of the Electoral College
    9) Ronald Reagan (Election of 1984): 90.89% of the Electoral College
    10) Lyndon B. Johnson (Election of 1964): 90.33% of the Electoral College
