Election of 1968 Summary

The war in Vietnam continued and it looked like the US was losing. So this made Lyndon Johnson an unappealing candidate for re-election. In fact, he dropped out completely because of his lack of success.

From here, three candidates stood out in the election of 1969. First, Richard Nixon represented the Republicans. Second, the Democrats nominated Hubert Humphrey. Finally, George Wallace introduced a newly-formed party called the American Independent Party.

In the presidential election of 1968, it was a close call. But Richard Nixon won and became the 37th president of the United States. While he gained 301 electoral votes, Hubert Humphrey obtained 191.
