The Election of 1960

This is  looking to be a close one. Vice President Richard Nixon vs young Senator John F. Kennedy. Kennedy currently leads, with the South liking his choice of running mate, Senate Majority Leader Lyndon B. Johnson. The two candidates have set off on the campaign trail, with a series of debates scheduled.

The First Debate

 

Senator Kennedy was seen as the victor in the first debate of this election, as Nixon appeared nervous under the pressure and heat of the studio lights

 
Debate results > Kennedy 15, Nixon 7 - Kennedy wins by a large margin in debate.

 

The press appears to also be a fan of (President?) Kennedy


News Power: Kennedy +197, Nixon +17, Byrd, Sr. +3.

The Second Debate

The second presidential debate went similarly to the first. Nixon made a few good points, but could not compare to Kennedy

Nixon was beaten severely again, yet another blow to the Vice President, after polls put the map at this...

President Kennedy has been in a coma since November. With recovery unlikely, Acting President Lyndon B. Johnson, has now announced his candidacy for President. With his only opposition coming from George Wallace internally, he looks dead certain to beat the Republican candidate, which is almost certain to be Arizona Senator Barry Goldwater.

Johnson/Humphrey - 60.3% of vote, or 78 and a half million

Goldwater/Miller - 37.7% of vote, or just over 49 million

ELECTION 1968 - Introduction

Lyndon Baines Johnson has multiple problems

 

  1. The Vietnam War is raging, causing massive anti war protests to grip the nation.
  2. Riots have enveloped the nation, much to the delight of opponents arguing for "law and order"
  3. The anti-war movement in the Democratic Party has ganged up on him, making it harder to win re-nomination
  4. Ex-Governor of Alabama George Wallace has quit the Democratic Party and is running under the American Independent Party banner, sapping support from Southern Democrats.
  5. Finally, the polls look like Richard Nixon will defeat him narrowly in November

He has a lot of work to do.

Quote

I believe that the people have made their opinions clear. I will step aside and allow another to take up the flag.

He did not endorse anyone, but gave hints he wanted voters to choose Robert Kennedy over Eugene McCarthy.

GENERAL ELECTION

In Johnson's last stand, he put his weight behind Kennedy, leading to him winning the DNC despite not winning the majority in the primaries. He is now running with Edmund Muskie, against a Nixon/Agnew ticket, while Wallace runs with Colonel Sanders.
