    WI: RFK vs Nixon in 1972?

    Kennedy isn't winning the south outside of maybe West Virginia and I think Nixon wins what was at the time the Republican west. Parts of what is now the Rust Belt and parts of the North East are what would decide the election. My guess is, unless as you suggest an overdrive CREEP getting out...

    1968 US Presidential Election Without the Vietnam War

    LBJ runs for and wins a 2nd term in 68, though not a decisively as he won 64. The 70s are less turbulent and less inflationary than OTL without the war, a Republican narrowly beats HHH in 72 with a 50/50 chance of winning re election in 76.

    Bicentennial Man: Ford '76 and Beyond

    This is a great timeline! With the Ford winning in 76, giving the GOP a third consecutive win and you hinting that the Democrats would hold the Presidency for 12 years (1981-93 like the GOP of OTL did), I wonder, if assuming economic conditions stay similar to OTL and assuming a Republican...

    WI Reagan re-elected until death in a world with no 22nd Amendment

    I doubt his health would've permitted him to run and while I think his response to 9/11 would've been more measured and smarter than Bush's was, I doubt he'd get a pass for it like Bush did OTL, so I think he'd see a Republican win coming and stand down even if his health wasn't an issue.

    WI Reagan re-elected until death in a world with no 22nd Amendment

    It wouldn't happen. I think in a world with no 22nd amendment and everything else of OTL staying the same, Reagan would win in 1988, abet by a narrower margin than Bush because Reagan's age would come into question, but I doubt he'd finish the term. A term that had Middle East conflict and an...

    AHC: Ted Kennedy victory in the 1980 Democratic primary

    This. Kennedy may even do well enough to help the Democrats keep the Senate, which would water down Reagan's agenda.

    AHC: Make Reagan a one term President.

    With a POD no earlier than January 1st 1980, make Ronald Reagan a one term President.

    AHC: Make Richard Nixon Be Remembered As a Good President

    You'd likely have a Democrat defeat Reagan in 72 and one that would likely handle the mid to late 70s better than Ford/Carter did.

    George H Bush wins 1992, who do the 2 parties nominate in 1996?

    I don't even think Dubya would run for Governor in 1994 in the event his father is re elected, as IIRC he even said his father's loss was what motivated him to do it. Richards would likely defeat a different Republican in 94 and would be in a good position to run for President or get chosen to...

    Nixon wins in 1960 and 1964: Democratic nominee in 1968?

    I agree HHH and Scoop Jackson are pretty plausible. Ed Muskie is also a possibility.

    AHC/WI: The Presidents Wallace

    Wallace is kept on the ticket in 1944 and succeeds FDR in 1945 after the latter's death, like Truman did OTL. Unlike Truman however, Wallace loses to Dewey in 1948. From there, Dewey gets saddled with the fallout from China falling to Communism and has a messy situation in Korea, leading to a...

    George H Bush wins 1992, who do the 2 parties nominate in 1996?

    Despite a good economy, I think the Democrats narrowly win in 1996. While the Democrats will likely have a crowded field due to everyone that sat 92 out thinking Bush was unbeatable throwing their hat in the ring, a strong nominee will likely emerge, while the GOP primary will likely be a...

    AHC: Make Richard Nixon Be Remembered As a Good President

    Eisenhower dies of a heart attack in late 1955, putting Nixon into the Presidency. Nixon rides a sympathy wave, peace, and prosperity to election in his own right in 1956 by a landslide, and while he has some setbacks economically and in terms of the Soviet Union, President Nixon wins a second...

    Political Consequences if Johnson and Humphrey exposed Nixon's Sabotage of Paris Peace Talks

    The GOP stays a center right party nationally through the 70s, more or less what it was under Nixon except it lacks Nixon's baggage. The events of the late 70s would likely tarnish this brand of Republicanism, leading to a Democrat winning big in 1980 and likely 1984 with the GOP spending the...

    Political Consequences if Johnson and Humphrey exposed Nixon's Sabotage of Paris Peace Talks

    Humphrey narrowly wins the election and goes on to lose in 1972 to a moderate Republican. After losing in a landslide with Goldwater in 1964 and losing a very winnable election in 1968 with a Nixon who ran more rightward than not, especially compared to his 1960 campaign, I think a moderate...

    AHC: Have Clinton gets Majorities in 1992 and/or 1996 against OTL opponents

    For 1992, have Perot stay out of the race when he drops out rather than re entering. As for 1996, campaigning more in key states and major cities out to do it, after all he did get 49% that year, it isn't that hard to get him 50+1, especially against Dole.

    AHC: Creating Kennedy Dynasty

    JFK lives and wins a 2nd term in 1964: 35. John F. Kennedy / Lyndon Johnson (Democratic): 1961-1969 36. George Romney / John Tower (Republican): 1969-1977 37. Robert Kennedy / Jimmy Carter (Democratic): 1977-1981 37. Charles Percy / Howard Baker (Republican): 1981-1989 38. Howard Baker / John...

    WI: No Watergate scandal

    Agnew still resigns and Ford is still nominated and confirmed as VP. I think 74 is still a Democratic wave year, but it produces less gains for them than OTL. As for Nixon's 2nd term, we likely bomb Vietnam one last time in 1975 in the hopes of saving it (something Ford wasn't in a position to...

    AHC: Make Bush Sr. lose the 1988 Election

    I don't think it's necessarily too ASB, but if he were the nominee he'd likely go down as badly or worse than McGovern did 16 years earlier.

    AHC: Make Bush Sr. lose the 1988 Election

    It's really not much of a challenge when you consider Dukakis of all people led by 17 points at one point during the campaign, and that was despite the overall fundamentals favoring the GOP. A stronger nominee with the right campaign could've narrowly defeated Bush.
