With Wallace in race, it goes this way:



Vice President Hubert Humphrey/Senator Robert F. Kennedy: 312 EV.; 46.1%
Former Vice President Richard Nixon/Governor Spiro Agnew: 181 EV.; 42.4%
Governor George Wallace/General Curtis LeMay 45 EV.; 10.9%

JFK had escalted Vietnam as LBJ did, as JFK was the one who actually begun on the American involvement.

However, a HHH/RFK ticket would have been possible. HHH wanted the end the war in 1968, we might have been out there sooner with him. And in domestic terms, both were liberals and would continue and expand the Great Society programs.
