The 1964 United States presidential election in Connecticut took place on November 3, 1964, as part of the 1964 United States presidential election, which was held throughout all fifty states and D.C. Voters chose eight representatives, or electors to the Electoral College, who voted for president and vice president.

Connecticut voted overwhelmingly for the Democratic nominee, incumbent President Lyndon B. Johnson of Texas, over the Republican nominee, Senator Barry Goldwater of Arizona. Johnson ran with incumbent Vice President Hubert H. Humphrey of Minnesota, while Goldwater’s running mate was Congressman William E. Miller of New York.

Johnson carried Connecticut by a wide margin of 35.72 percent. His 67.81 percent vote share is the largest for a Democrat in Connecticut presidential election history, and the largest for any party since John Quincy Adams in 1828. [1]
