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.
