Today, we complete our extracts from artist Nelson Harding‘s collection, The Political Campaign of 1912 in Cartoons, with cartoons appropriate to the post-election (then & now). Some of these I’ve shown before, and some are new. The context below, is that in the 1912 Presidential Election, the Republican Party came in third place, behind the Progressive Party (2nd place), and Democrats (who won). So it was quite reasonable to think at that time, that the Progressive Party might remain a national player, while Republicans go the way of the Whigs.
