On October 7, at a huge rally in Columbus, Ohio, Republican Vice Presidential candidate Ferguson referred to Democratic Presidential candidate Adlai Stevenson as an "egghead," meaning Stevenson was out of touch with ordinary people and was lacking in realism and common sense.

The press quickly picked up on this term, and it dogged Stevenson throughout the rest of the campaign.  The perception in the minds of ordinary Americans of Stevenson as an out of touch intellectual became widespread throughout the country.

Election night 1952

Dewey/Ferguson sweep through the northeast, down into the border states of Maryland and Delaware, and into parts of the midwest, taking Dewey's home state of New York by a substantial margin and Ferguson's home state of Michigan by a wide margin.  They sweep the plains, mountain states, and the west coast.

Stevenson/Sparkman sweeps the south, as well as takaing Stevenson's home state of Illinois comfortably, and winning Missouri, home state of current President Harry Truman.

Wallace/Dever take Wallace's home state of Iowa, and are able to add Minnesota and Wisconsin, a decent showing for this ticket.

Rockefeller/Snyder fail to win any states.  Nelson Rockefeller, aside from the fame of the Rockefeller family, is not widely known as a public fugure.  His time will come in the future.

Dewey/Ferguson                304 EV  48% PV
Stevenson/Sparkman         194 EV  40% PV 
Wallace/Dever                      33 EV    8% PV
Rockefeller/Snyder                  0 EV    4% PV

The Dewey era begins.

The government of Argentina brings Ernst Heinkel, the elderly founder and one-time stockholder in Heinkel Flugzeugwerke, to Buenos Aires to establish a national airline industry. The new Heinkel factory is presently being used to produce license-built Gloster Meteors for the Argentine Air Force.

But then Stalin starts nuclear war and 99% of humans die, and Dewey's victory is largely regarded by the historians of the few remaining survivors as the worst thing to ever befall humanity.

The "Stalin starts nuclear war and 99% of humans die" story was spread by Cedric Bickelseimer in strict defiance of the court order that he cease and desist in making up and spreading any more stories to the public. 

The judge in this case has Bickelseimer undergo a physhological exam, in which Bickelseimer is found to be a "compulsive rumor monger," and is found to be incapable of controlling his compulsion to make up and spread stories, which are usually stories that alarm the public.  Therefore, the judge has Bickelseimer admitted to the "Oklahoma State Institution For Compulsive Rumor Spreaders," in Bartlesville, where he will have no means of communicating with the outside world.

Stalin personally assinates Winfield, then drops a nuke on every major city in the world. Russia slowly colonizes the entire Earth, and eventually, the galaxy.
