Pinback button promoting Norman Thomas for president and James Maurer for vice president, 1928. Litho. Socialist Party of America, Chicago.

The Socialist Party ticket came in third behind the two major party tickets, but polled less than 1% of the popular vote, a far cry from the high water mark just eight years previous, when Debs got a million votes from his prison cell. Norman Thomas would become a perennial also-ran over the next 20 years, and a leader in leftist politics until the 1960s.
