Nixon decides against running. There is a deadlocked convention between Goldwater and Rockefeller. In an effort to find a candidate, Tom Dewey is nominated again. Dewey selects Goldwater as his running mate.

The democratic side goes the same as in real life.

Assuming Goldwater avoided making any controversial statements, Dewey wins by a narrow margin since he actually campaigns this time and argues that he will continue Ike's policies while looking for ways on how to adjust them and make them more effecient in the upcoming decade.
