1972 Election

For those of you who weren't even sperm yet.
In November of 1972 President Nixon was re-elected by a stunning vote.

Richard Nixon - 520 electoral votes
George McGovern - 17 electoral votes

It was one of the most crushing defeats the Democrats ever suffered (excluding the Civil War)and Nixon had an "overwhelming mandate".
By comparison Obama's re-election count was puny.

Yet within two years Nixon was driven from office by the Democrats.

Beware, cocky obamabots. Beware.
