57. The GOP also won 49 states in 1984
That would never happen by a "D" or an "R" today.The 80's are gone. There is more division now. However, maybe three can be done. Hell we almost (actually we did) did 2000, that would have been three. But it was close, so if we win, expect 2016 to be close. What about 2020? Can we do four? I doubt it.
