Number of times in the last 100 years when fewer Texans voted in a presidential general election than in the previous one:

  • 1936 – 2.3% fewer voters than in 1932
  • 1956 – 5.8% fewer voters than in 1952
  • 1996 – 8.8% fewer voters than in 1992
  • 2012 – 1.0% fewer voters than in 2008

It has not happened in consecutive elections, but it could this year.
