A Mormon winning the U.S. Presidency in 1968? His son was even viciously attacked for his religion by Gingrich and Santorum in the Republican Primaries as late as 2012 in RL.

Has the "Puppeted Democratic Vietnam" become ungovernable yet due to continued insurgency, or on the brink of becoming so?

Weird. I'll fix that when I get back to the 1972 election. He should have bonuses in the Northeast, but bonus negatives in the conservative states, but definitely nothing that large.

No because of how the timeline has aligned events,and with Romney being mormon, Rockefeller really drove that ticket (probably why he lost aganist Sanford) and his religion ended up not being an issue

I think you gave the wrong answer to the wrong question. If you have political ambitions and give the wrong answers to the wrong questions blatantly at a press conference, your career will tank...
