政治上的压倒性胜利是胜利者以压倒性优势获胜的任何选举。 据已故《纽约时报》政治作家威廉·萨菲尔（William Safire）在其《萨菲尔的政治词典》中所说，该术语在1800年代变得流行，定义了一次“响亮的胜利；反对派被埋葬了”。 虽然许多选举被宣布为压倒性胜利，但要量化它们却比较棘手。 “巨大的胜利”有多大？ 是否有一定的胜率可以胜任压倒性选举？ 您需要赢得几张选举人票才能实现压倒性选举？ 事实证明，关于滑坡定义的具体细节尚无共识，但政治观察家对具有这种资格的历史性总统选举普遍达成了共识。
The overwhelming political victory is any election in which the winner wins with an overwhelming advantage. According to the late New York Times political writer William Safire in his “Safir’s Political Dictionary,” the term became popular in the 1800s, defining a “reciting victory; against The faction was buried.” Although many elections have been declared an overwhelming victory, it is tricky to quantify them. How big is the “great victory”? Is there a certain winning percentage that can be used for overwhelming elections? How many electoral votes do you need to win to win overwhelming elections? It turns out that there is no consensus on the specific details of the definition of landslides, but political observers have generally reached a consensus on the historic presidential elections with such qualifications.
