The 1964 Campaign

Recommended Posts

Hello folks. I've decided to do an alternative history run; What if Kennedy had survived his assassination? I'll be playing Eugene McCarthy, representing more progressive democrats disaffected by Kennedy, his escalation in Vietnam, as well as some of his more conservative economic policies.

 The state of the race as of January 1st

Democratic Party:

Kennedy, 60.2% 5,180

Wallace 18.2% 114

(me)McCarthy 1.5% 107

Republican Party:

Goldwater 27.4% 1,388

Rockefeller 22.4% 460

Scranton 15.8% 89

Smith 6.2% 132

Lodge Jr. 4.7% 103

Bush 1.5% 28

Stassen 2.2% 86
