You didn't read it correctly. You were suppose to answer the question above! Bloody Hell.

1952 was the year Henry Cabot Lodge Junior lost to John F. Kennedy.

In 1946, Richard Nixon won California's 12th Congressional District seat, who did he defeat?

Just a note, you can trust that I am being honest.

I have studied Presidential politics since June of 2005. I know all of the political maps from 1932 to present like the back of my own hand.

I have read all sorts of books about the Presidents.

Apparently, you didn't look too closely, Bush lost NY and PA in 2000 and 2004, but he still won.  Also, please remember to ask a question at the end of each post.

Who did Al Gore endorse in 2004?

Reagan endorsed Barry Goldwater, and gave his speech in October.

Who was the first candidate to lose the Popular Vote but win the election?  Also, Gore endorsed Dean, not Kerry.

I meant to answer the question but some how it did not happen

John Kerry for the first answer

My question was which candidate did Reagan support in 1964? In what month did he make a national adress for that candidate?

No, Jackson lost the election to Adams.  The answer was Rutherford Hayes.  Remember to ask a question after answering the previous one.

Update reading list

The idea of parodying the preceding Atlasian's postings is laughable, of course, but not for reasons one might expect.

Theodora Nathan for Vice President in 1972; Libertarian.

George Wallace in 1968.

-----

During the presidential history of the 1990s and early 21st century, we saw a situation in which an incumbent was defeated for re-election, his successor serving two full terms in office, and then the original incumbent's son winning election in an open race and going on to serve two terms.

This same situation has happened before in a state-level race, involving a person who would later become president.  When and where was it, and who were the people involved?
