    Answer: In general, southerners didn't like Lincoln long before the 1860 election. As a member of the Free Soil Party (before it later became the Republican Party) Lincoln argued against expanding slavery into any of the new territories ... That is why in 1860, Lincoln's name did not appear on the ballot in ten southern states.
