Who would you vote for in the 1968 election? I'm going for Nixon.

This is a tough one...I an neutral on Nixon, Wallace was an idiot, and Humphrey was pro-Vietnam.  Out of these three, I would vote for Humphrey, but I might have cast my vote for Dick Gregory (Peace & Freedom Party).

There was someone here before who supported Wallace, but I don't remember who. I am not sure about this one, certainly not Wallace, probably Humphrey due to the murder of RFK. Don't let them win, you know... Tongue

From the 'who would you have voted for' thread...


1968: Wallace

I generally cut a strong conservative streak, with a few annoyed-at-incumbent bumps.

Yes, I like LeMay a lot - his ideas won WWII, and the fact that we abandoned them is the reason for the defeats in Korea and Vietnam.  If it was a LeMay/Wallace ticket, you bet, but the other way round no thanks.  

I voted for Nixon.  Humphrey would've been my last choice.

Korea was, worse case, a draw, and I'd go as far as call it a win, actually. Vietnam was impossible to win while remaining a civilized country. But I guess that wouldn't bother you or LeMay.

I would have picked Humphrey, since at the time I wouldn't have known about Nixon signing the Clean Air Act (since obviously he wouldn't have been president yet to do so). I would have to go with the party that signed the Civil Rights Act. The Vietnam war would be a wash, since i think both candidates were denoucing it to some degree.

I would have voted for Nixon.

And to set the record straight on civil rights, a higher percentage of Republicans in Congress voted for the Civil Rights laws than Democrats.

The Republicans tried to pass stronger civil rights laws under Eisenhower in the 1950s, but the Democrats in Congress stripped them of any real meaning.

I know that more republicans voted for the civil rights act. You are not 'setting the record straight', try not to sound so high and mighty. And I said the party who SIGNED the civil rights act.

I like Nixon as a president due to his first term achievements. However, before he had a first term there would be no way for me to know that he would have been such a good incumbent.

And that Agnew guy would have creeped me out.

Why was Nixon an imposter? For RFK? Anyway, since he wasn't actually running due to him being dead, it might be a good idea to vote for one of the actual candidates, that's all i thought.
