With the election in three days, you have to decide. Will you vote for Senator Kennedy's anti-war campaign? Or will you vote for Rockefeller and a rejection of the Democrats but in favor of a sane Republican? Or will you decide to support George Wallace's third-party populist campaign?

(The V.P. choices for the major parties are the results of what people stated in the threads)


Senator Robert F. Kennedy (D-NY)/
Vice President Hubert H. Humphrey (D-MN)




Governor Nelson Rockefeller (R-NY)/
Governor George Romney (R-MI)




Former Governor George Wallace (AI-AL)/
Actor John Wayne (AI-CA)

RFK. But I'd be satisfied as long as Wallace didn't win.

An enthusiastic vote for Rocky/Romney.

Why are so many Republicans voting for RFK? I mean, sure, Rockefeller isn't a conservative, but he's to the right of RFK.

John Wayne was an AIP member ?

A poll was done on this board of all the people considered by Wallace for VP and John Wayne won.

But the fact he was considered in first place means he somewhat shared his views...

I probably would have voted for RFK, but I would not mind Rockefeller either. This in kind of off-topic, but I think that if RFK were elected in 1968 and re-elected in 1972, the Republicans would have probably took over the House and Senate in the 1974 midterm elections due to the mediocre economy of the mid 1970s and overall fatigue with 20 years of the Democrats controlling both branches of congress. In 1976, Ronald Reagan would have likely became President if RFK was elected in 1968 as well.

yeah what the f[inks] even is that monstrous amalgamation of man and machine

Like I said 1960 was a f***ing crazy election year. It's like everyone woke up and wondered "who the hell should I vote for?"

Well John Wayne was a conservative Republican if that's what you mean to say.
