NOTHING NEW UNDER THE SUN (ALMOST)

7th November, 1972 : President Richard Nixon obliterated the challenge from the Democratic candidate, Senator George McGovern, today when he won re-election by a huge majority. He lost only Massachusetts and the District of Columbia. In the popular vote, Nixon won 47 million votes, against 29 million for the Democratic candidate, while in the electoral college McGovern won only 17 votes, against 520 for Nixon.
