If LBJ ran again in 1968, would he win against Nixon?

America's like that hot chick everyone wants, and illegal immigrants are all the nerds that she should say "no" to.

It depends, Johnson might have pulled out the race.

Just for the fun of it, summer 2014 reading: I am taking college courses both in July & did in May. I have read all of the material for those. Besides that I read Gifted Hands: The Ben Carson Story & the book on Kennedy & Nixon by Chris Matthews both cover to cover & before that One Last Kiss: The Chris Coleman Story. All very informative & entertaining books. I have started Rendevouz With Destiny By Craig Shirley.

Johnson was polling far worse than Humphrey, and was less popular with pretty much every demographic. He wins DC, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, West Virginia, Minnesota, Hawaii, and maybe New York.

Richard M. Nixon/Spiro T. Agnew (R): 322 EV
Lyndon B. Johnson/Hubert H. Humphrey (D): 168 EV
George C. Wallace/Curtis E. LeMay (AI): 48 EV

President Johnson uses his strength in the Southwest and Upper South to perform better in Oklahoma, New Mexico, Missouri, Arkansas and Louisiana. He also would most likely have used his ability as president to stop bombings in Vietnam to try to win back the McCarthy and Kennedy Democrats (much as he tried to do with Humphrey). In the end, however, Nixon would still have won.
