Reagan's Conservative platform was not as popular as it is today. Even in California, he was almost recalled. Humphrey would have won.
Humphrey/Muskie
Reagan/Rhodes
Wallace/Lemay


Why does Wallace do so much better in your scenario?

Why does Humphrey win Indiana and Reagan carry Massachusetts?

I assume you'te being sarcastic. I think you already know that on this forum, Democrats are red and Republicans are blue.

No, I'm not being sarcastic. The color code at the top states that states colored in blue have been won by Humphrey, and the states colored in red have been won by Reagan.

No way JFK and Reagan appear on 1 ticket.

Are you attempting to insult the most awesome bipartisan ticket in the hsitory of alternate history?

I think he's stating that a Kennedy/Reagan ticket - in 1968 - would be unlikely.
