Romney wouldn't really have the momentum to even win the Nom with no Vietnam War. A major selling point of Romney was his ability to pick up dissafected Democrats, angered by the War, and Independents due to his general perception as an honest politician, and a moderate republican to boot. Remove the Vietnam War, though, and you get a generally popular LBJ, one who'd likely do well in all the polls against Romney.IMO, without Vietnam 1968 sees George Romney go up against LBJ, who wins but not by anywhere near as much as in 1964. Instead of Vietnam, the dominating issues would be crime, law and order, civil rights, and poverty. LBJ gets 338 electoral votes to Romney's 152 and Wallace's 48. Democrats maintain their majorities in both Houses of Congress.
