comment Why did Thomas Hendricks win the majority of Horace Greeley's electoral votes in 1872?
This is a fascinating question, and one I don't think can be answered via internet research. Someone is going to need to head to a library and find an old book on the topic I'd guess.

comment Counterfactual reasoning and analogical reasoning
To add to what @Mike said, another problem is that historians do not always know the bounds of the problem domain they are working with because it is nearly impossible to nail down all the inputs to a historical situation.
