I absolutely cannot stand the man.  I think he is arrogant and fake.

Rather poor, but my opinion of Mondale is even poorer.  I like Reagan on foreign policy.

Gporter, please try to learn how to use quotes properly.  If you would like some advice, PM me.

Reagan endorsed Barry Goldwater, and gave his speech in October.

Who was the first candidate to lose the Popular Vote but win the election?  Also, Gore endorsed Dean, not Kerry.

Andrew Jackson

No, Jackson lost the election to Adams.  The answer was Rutherford Hayes.  Remember to ask a question after answering the previous one.

Who was the first women to receive and electoral vote, and for what party?

Hell, I would have voted for Reagan against Mondale.

Huh

I think that Mondale was too liberal.

1962

In what years has a President been elected while losing Pennsylvania and New York?



1916, 1948, 1968  

Just a note, you can trust that I am being honest.

I have studied Presidential politics since June of 2005. I know all of the political maps from 1932 to present like the back of my own hand.

I have read all sorts of books about the Presidents.

Apparently, you didn't look too closely, Bush lost NY and PA in 2000 and 2004, but he still won.  Also, please remember to ask a question at the end of each post.

Who did Al Gore endorse in 2004?

The complication is that Attorney General Lisa Madigan has been expected to run for Governor since her election in 2002. Her father, Speaker of the House Mike Madigan, did not agree with Obama on the nominee for Comptroller in 2006, with Obama's choice eventually coming out on top. It would be difficult to see Lisa stepping back for Barack, particularly if Blagojevich remains intent on a run for a third term in 2010.

Is he not term limited?

How can anybody know for sure if people aren't just cheating by using Wikipedia?

I am hoping people will be honest.

I knew that too.

It was like 1964, their was no way that Lyndon Johnson was going to be defeated in 1964.

It was the same way in 1980, their was no way that Ronald Reagan was going to loose in 1984.

Dude, you need to work on your grammar and spelling.

What I was going to say, I ran it through spell check and there was nothing wrong with the post.

The basic idea of this thread is that you answer the Presidential Election trivia question asked by the previous poster.  I'll get it started:

Who was the Progressive Party VP nominee in 1912?

Easy one, Hiram Johnson of California.

Now for my question, in what year did Henry Cabot Lodge jr. loose to Kennedy for a Massachussetts senate seat?

You didn't read it correctly. You were suppose to answer the question above! Bloody Hell.

1952 was the year Henry Cabot Lodge Junior lost to John F. Kennedy.

In 1946, Richard Nixon won California's 12th Congressional District seat, who did he defeat?

Jerry Voorhis. Who was a five term incumbent.

Are you going to ask another question?

When did Richard Russell run for President?
27166  General Discussion / History / Re: Presidential Trivia on: December 23, 2007, 03:57:22 pm
Tom Harkin of Iowa for Rocky, and 1952 for gporter.

In what year did John Sparkman appear on the Democratic ticket?

A really good documentary about Bill's 1992 campaign.

I thought with your hackish ways that you would give it a democratic victory with a lackluster reason for it. But, I was pleasently surprised. Thank you.

And by the way I have posted democratic victories before, check my history of 2008 predictions.

I may be the biggest Democratic hack on this forum (which I take as a compliment), but I know that no Democrat was going to win in 1984, it was a lost election.  Hell, I would have voted for Reagan against Mondale.

I amazed 18% are undecided; I wonder how many will go for Clinton and how many for Rudy.
27172  Election Archive / 2008 Elections / Re: Will there be a lull in the action after February 5? on: December 23, 2007, 03:30:07 pm
Since its almost guaranteed that the general election matchup will be set up by Wednesday evening, February 6, will there be a break in the action for a month or two before the nominees get things going?  And, if so, how long do you think the break will last?

I think that for the GOP, the nominee won't be settled until March at the earliest; it may go no until the convention.

I don't think he has a shot.  I think Boxer is a fairly popular incumbent, and I don't see California electing a Republican senator.
