1960 NBC Election Night Coverage(Part 3):



Source: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Fp0W4Dkl_mk

9:00
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LQ8dPRhuE1s&t=145s

Brinkley: Its 9 PM in the East and NBC can now project Vice President Nixon will carry the states of Arizona, Colorado, Nebraska, South Dakota and Wyoming, while Senator Humphrey will carry the states of Rhode Island , Minnesota and also will carry the home state of his running mate Missouri . We are unable to make a projection in New York, Wisconsin , Louisiana, New Mexico and North Dakota at the moment



Nixon 99
Humphrey 60
Faubus 47

Huntley: So Far in Pennsylvania , Senator Humphrey still holds a solid lead but remember much of suburban and rural parts of Pennsylvania havent come in yet which will almost certainly tighten up the margin and looking at these results, it looks like it will be close even though at this moment Senator Humphrey has the edge here in Pennsylvania. In Michigan , Vice President Nixon currently holds a lead but there is still much of Detroit left out and in Illionis currently Vice President Nixon holds the lead due to a strong performance in the Collar Counties and Downstate but remember there is still much to count. In Texas Vice president Nixon holds a 3 point lead so far but there is still much to count but in one bad news for the Vice President in the south is in Virginia where it seems like in northern virginia , Mr.Faubus is pulling votes from both camps which could put more pressure for Richmond and Virginia Beach to deliver the state for Vice President Nixon. In Tenneesse though so far Vice President Nixon is leading thanks to a strong performance in the Eastern half of the state but their is of course a long way to go.


9:33

Huntley: NBC News is now able to project that Senator Humphrey will carry Maryland, Governor Faubus will carryLouisiana and Vice president Nixon will carry North Dakota




Nixon 103
Humphrey 69
Faubus 57

Chancellor: So far in Illionis , Vice President Nixon is still leading by a point or two but only 60% of th vote is in so far so there is still much to go. In Texas again Vice President Nixon is ahead but as more preceients come in , his lead continues to drop here as more of the democratic areas of the state reports in. In Wisconsin Vice President Humphrey holds a narrow lead so far but there is still obvisouly much of the state to report.

We do have some major news to project so far and that is in the senate race in Wyoming the Republican Edwin Thompson will be elected marking the first senate flip so far as every other race so far has seen the party currently holding it win.


Brinkley: One interesting state so far is Florida as out of all the southern states it is the best state Mr.Nixon is doing in

Huntley: Well much of that is out of all the southern states, Florida is the least southern so its not a surprise that Governor Faubus isnt doing as well here outside the panhandle and I wouldnt be surprised if we could soon call it for Mr.Nixon


9:48:

Brinkley: We have a major state we can project for Senator Humphrey and it is a big won as we can project he will win New York an its 45 electoral votes. We also can project that Vice President Nixon will take his first southern state of the night and that is Florida and its 10 electoral votes




Humphrey 114
Nixon 113
Faubus 57


Huntley: Wow the electoral total is so close with only 1 electoral vote separating Mr. Humphrey and Mr.Nixon . I think at this point the question has to be asked whether or not any side will even win a majority of electoral votes cause if it stays this close , that is probably what the outcome will be.

1960 NBC Election Night Coverage(Part 4):



Source: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Fp0W4Dkl_mk

10:00
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LQ8dPRhuE1s&t=145s

Brinkley: Its 10 PM in the east and we can project Vice President Nixon will carry the states of Utah and Idaho as expected and with that retakes the lead in the electoral college race. We are though unable to project the states of Iowa, Montana or Nevada at the moment



Nixon 121
Humphrey 114
Faubus 57


Brinkey: So Chet were are some of the updates in the major industrial battlegrounds and Texas


Huntley: In Illionis with nearly 3/4 of the vote , Vice President Nixon has expanded his lead to nearly 1.5 points but the most of the remainder vote will be in Chicago metro the question is it will it be int the city or suburbs or a mix so we will wait on this state for another hour and a half to two hours. In Wisconsin Senator Humphrey leads by 2 points right now, in Michigan Vice President Nixon is still up 2 points but we are told that most of the votes outstanding will be from the Detroit area, in Pennsylvania Vice President Humphrey is still up by 4 points, and in New Jersey both candidates are trading leads as results come in so that will go down to the wire. The really good news here for Mr.Nixon is in Texas where he holds a 3 point lead even after many of the Democratic areas have started to come in . So at this point John what would you say are the pathaways to the white house.


Chancellor: Well taking my calculator here and if you added the 3 uncalled races in the west and Iowa what are expected to go for Mr.Nixon then you get to 142 electoral votes for the Vice President and then given out of all these battleground states he is doing the best in Texas which has 24 electoral votes and Illionis which has 27 you get to Mr.Nixon having 193 electoral votes. Now id say any path probably involves the 3 states on the west coast to California, Oregon and Washington so if you add those electoral votes to the Vice President column , he gets to 240 electoral votes which is just 29 short. So at that point you can have different pathways to get there. From there id say the easiest path is a hybrid path of taking one southern state and for sake of argument lets say Tennessee which gets him to 251, one in the North East New jersey which gets him to 267 and from there he just needs any one state to get over the top .


For Vice President Humphrey id say is by adding to his column these 4 states and they are a must , New Jersey with with 16,  Pennsylvania with 32, Michigan with 20 and Wisconsin with 12 which would take him to 194 electoral votes. Now from there id say he must win either Illionis or Texas , and right now Illinois is looking better for him than Texas so lets give him Illinois which would give him 221 electoral votes. Then from there id say he must win California  , Washington and probably even Oregon which then would give him 268 electoral votes. From there all Senator Humphrey would need either Hawaii or Alaska and he gets over.


Though as you can see its very probably that neither men get to 270 as it requires taking many of the big states.


10:36:

Huntley: NBC News is now able to project Vice President Nixon in the winner of 3 states, two of them that really arent surprising which are the states of Iowa and New Mexico but we can also project him the winner of a battleground state as well and while it is a small state , in an election like this it could be critical and that is we can now project with all the ballots being counted, that the state of Delaware will be won by Vice President Nixon now.



Nixon 138
Humphrey 114
Faubus 57

Huntley: So David how are things looking in the 3 southern states that are close between Mr.Nixon and Mr.Faubus

Brinkley: Well lets look at the results and so far we can see with nearly 80% in Tennessee at the moment Vice President Nixon currently leads Mr.Faubus 39%-36% there , with nearly 85% in North Carolina , Mr Faubus currently holds a 42% to 37% lead and with a little more than 90% in Virginia Mr.Faubus holds a 37% to 35% lead . At this point in Tennessee i would say Mr. Nixon is favored but only sightly so , while in Virginia its gonna be a nail biter but in North Carolina its  hard to see how Mr.Faubus doesnt win the state at this point.

Huntley: Well yes I agree and it seems like our team calling these states also agrees as  they have just called North Carolina and its 14 electoral votes for Governor Faubus.




Nixon 138
Humphrey 114
Faubus 71


Chancellor: Now we will send it back to your local stations so you can have coverage of your local results and we will be back at the top of the hour when polls in the west coast close.

I think it's either a Nixon win or a deadlock.
