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

If a burial strikes my family as too practical, I'd go for either a viking funeral on one of the Great Lakes or to be sealed up in a tomb with my closest servants and bang-maids so they may wait on my every need in the afterlife.

the birth of modern america & onward election Frederick Douglas becomes the 1st African American president of the united states when he wins election to the office in 1892 only 30 years after the height of slavery in the United States. He narrowly wins reelection in 1896 against William Jennings Bryan. Douglas runs again in 1900 and even indicated his interest in a 4th run in 1904 but Grover Cleveland wins the 1900 election.

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.
