Jackson is able to significantly outperform McGovern, as he cannot be attacked as a liberal of any kind, but still loses to Nixon.

Richard M. Nixon/Spiro T. Agnew (R): 339 EV
Henry M. Jackson/Dale L. Bumpers (D): 199 EV

Senator Henry 'Scoop' Jackson does profoundly better than Senator George McGovern of South Dakota in RL 1972, but fails to defeat President Richard Nixon. Senator Jackson does better against Nixon due to Unions actually supporting his campaign unlike McGovern's, thus Jackson is able to pull off victories in Union friendly states, West Virginia, Michigan for example. Despite this, liberals attracted by the McGovern campaign in RL 1972 stay at home primarily due to Jackson's support of the War in Vietnam.
