1972: Nixon reelected in landslide!

In 1968, Richard Nixon was elected with 42% of the popular vote in a very divisive presidential election.    

In 1972, President Nixon enjoyed one of the greatest landslides of all time.    He got 61% of the popular vote beating Senator McGovern by 18 million votes.     

McGovern was a critic of the war.    However, President Nixon withdrew most of the troops and the war not the issue that the Democrats expected.    Also, Senator McGovern was branded as a liberal and flopped in most of the country.
