Since 1920, the Clerk of the House has collected and published the official vote counts for federal elections from the official sources among the various states and territories. These documents, out of print for many years, have been collected and scanned in a format to make them once again available to researchers and students.
Statistics from some recent elections are available as both HTML and scanned image (Adobe Acrobat .PDF) formats. Users should be aware that printing a document in its entirety is often a lengthy process depending on your equipment.

Well, let us see what the "second lowest" margins have meant historically for the Demon-rat Party, shall we? (For simplicity, all numbers are rounded, and only Democrat vs. Republican contests are considered...third parties are not included!)
1980: Geraldine Ferraro wins over Republican opposition by 65% to 35%.
1982: Geraldine Ferraro wins over Republican opposition 79% to 21%.
1984: Thomas Manton wins over Republican opposition 57% to 43%.
1986: Thomas Manton wins over Republican opposition 74% to 26%.
1988: Thomas Manton wins with no Republican opposition, 100% to 0%.
1990: Thomas Manton wins over Republican opposition 72.5% to 27.5%.
1992: Chuck Schumer wins with no Republican opposition, 100% to 0%
1994: Chuck Schumer wins over Republican opposition 75% to 25%.

From 1980 to 2010, inclusive, the average Democrat received 78% of the vote vs. 22% for the Republican.
The last "competitive" election was a 57% to 43% way back in 1984.
Four elections the Democrat had NO REPUBLICAN OPPOSITION. For Debbie Wassermann Schultz to say this is a "tough" district for Democrat operatives is laughable.
Thanks for researching that. It is very interesting and makes DWS statement a typical democrat lie.
What she mean was “it’s a tough district for dems”....When the whole country is watching and they can’t cheat. See, now doesn’t that make more sense?
If the GOP had a Jewish candidate there would be no question he would win, not just here but in other neighboring districts and races as well.
but they had a Catholic and he still won.
Excellent summation, well done. I looked at the document for 2010 but could not find the total number of registered voters compared to turnout, have you come across any?
if you go to the link, it has the results for EVERY national race from 1948 to 2010...I got my summaries by adding the numbers.
Here are the TOTAL Democrat/Republican votes for each of the NY 9 races (I excluded third parties, remember:)
I do NOT know how these numbers reflect the turnout PERCENTAGE, THOUGH...
Appears Debbie Wassermann Schultz is either a serious dumbass or a blanket LIAR.
I did a quick search from the state elections site and found this:
Total registration as of April 2010 was: 344,329. With a turnout of 104,761 we get 30.4%.
What an absolutely abysmal stat to have. This district has a serious problem when less than 1/3rd of your population actually takes the time to vote, for this effort the effect was positive but how long will this last? The turnout for the general election in 2008 for the US was roughly 60% which in and of itself reflects poorly on the US but is far better than NY’s 9th District.
Thanks again for compiling the info.
Yes. Though with her you are being redundant.
Good grief that house district was the springboard not only for Senator upChuck but also for the RAT’s VP candidate Ferraro. That is truly a nasty loss for them.
you have to understand most of those registrations are fraudulent. They exist so that Dems can pad their votes when no one is looking.
I don’t think Debbie Wassermann Schultz would find any interest even as a camp follower.
