The Kennedy Cakewalk

Arizona Senator Barry Goldwater / New York Congressman William E. Miller - 17 (37%)




"After a tense night, Richard Nixon hit 269 with only California left to be called. At 5:02am EST California was called by a margin of XXXXX for New York Senator Robert F. Kennedy. Kennedy went on to be elected by the House of Representatives, and his running mate by the United States Senate.

The quixotic campaign of Alabaman George Wallace, which initially drew widespread attention, fizzled in the final month of the campaign. The candidate eventually won only the states that went to Barry Goldwater four years earlier."

"We obviously had Kennedy fatigue."



Massachusetts Senator Ted Kennedy / Georgia Governor Jimmy Carter - 77 (48%; 38,271,500)
Majority Leader Gerald Ford / Kansas Senator Bob Dole - 461 (52%; 41,551,360)




"No one expected it. It was a come from behind like we'd never seen in American politics. The rematch of the century."



Massachusetts Senator Ted Kennedy / Texas Senator Lloyd Bentsen - 366 (45%; 37,249,268)
President Gerald Ford / Vice President Bob Dole - 172 (39%; 32,684,138)

1984: Hollings vs. Connally



Fritz HollingsJohn ConnallyOthers
Electoral Vote53800
Popular Vote61%39%0%

In this scenario, Fritz was the incumbent, and I decided to pit him against Governor John Connally.

I've never seen a more beautiful map, he won Texas by 8%! Nebraska and Utah were the closest states, Fritz won them both by 2%.

I'm actually a little surprised they haven't tapped Tim Scott yet.

Tapped? Graham hasn't even worked up the courage to ask him out yet.

Johnson wins in '68!

Surprisingly, LBJ wins his second election.  He defeated Wallace and Nixon in two early debates and in a later debate Nixon made a serious gaffe which may have cost him the election.  Johnson was also not afraid to use the US military in the Middle East even with the Vietnam war raging on.  Almost all the states were close, especially the ones Nixon won.  Wallace only won Alabama, but strangely also campaigned hard in the Northeast.  His visit to Yugoslavia received good reviews (better than Johnson's trip to Switzerland), but apparently failed to help him in any meaningful way.



Johnson/Humphrey: 323 EV, 48% of Popular Vote
Nixon/Agnew: 205 EV, 45% of Popular Vote
Wallace/Thurmond: 10 EV, 7% of Popular Vote

LBJ wins a third term!

The Twenty-Second Amendment has been repealed!  Johnson can run for another term!  Nelson Rockefeller runs as the Republican candidate with William Scranton as his running mate.  Wallace is running again, but segregation will be downplayed this time and William Dyke of Wisconsin is running mate.  Johnson defeated Rockefeller in the first debate and destroyed him in the second.  The Johnson campaign did not even consider Wallace to be worth debating.  The Atlantic Southern states were all extremely close.  Also Wyoming was won by less than 1000 votes.  Wallace only cracked 1% in his home state of Alabama.



Johnson/Humphrey: 461 EV, 54% of Popular Vote
Rockefeller/Scranton: 77EV, 45% of Popular Vote
Wallace/Dyke: 0 EV, 0% of Popular Vote

LBJ died within days of his inauguration in 1973.  Herbert Humphrey was an unpopular President, and Reagan refused to appear on the debate stage with him.  Humphrey's decision to chose Carter as his running mate failed to get him the support of the South and he only won DC and the state of Massachusetts.

Reagan ran for reelection in 1980 expecting an easy victory like before.  The Democrats dominated Ted Kennedy for President and Robert Byrd for VP.  Barry Commoner ran as the Citizen's party candidate on a left-wing platform emphasizing environmentalism with Ralph Nader as his running mate.  Reagan in a gesture of politeness agreed to debate commoner and won soundly.  A few weeks later, all three candidates agreed to debate in which Reagan won.  Reagan still had a tough time, having to fight for California which he just barely won.  The race was decided when Washington was called for Kennedy around midnight.

1984 was a very easy election for Kennedy, not even bothering to debate Laxalt or Clark.

He was indeed considered for the ticket. He never showed any interest, though.

Yes, but he was considered. So I took into account that warped sense of history into my mischeavous vision of history where the Republicans go down a more neoliberal route, Democrats go nigh socialist, and the American Independents are a racist/fascist/right-wing populist type party.
