United States presidential election, 1964

Overview

Introduction​

This is a revision of the United States presidential election of 1964, the year of Democratic President Lyndon B. Johnson’s landslide election against Republican Barry Goldwater.

In the 1964 election of the current timeline, Johnson received over 61% of the popular vote compared to over 38% for Goldwater. But in this revised version of history, the 1964 landslide is a bit narrower. In this revision, Johnson has 58.4% of the popular vote compared to Goldwater’s 41.2%, for a victory margin of just over 17%.

I’m doing this because Barry Goldwater is a significant pioneer figure in the patriotic American revolution, known by the mainstream as the American conservative movement. Ronald Reagan admired Goldwater, and his political beliefs in many ways mirrored that of Goldwater. With 41% of the popular vote instead of 38%, this further paves the way for the Reagan landslides, which will be much bigger than the ones in the current timeline by the way.

The revised election below is organized state-by-state in alphabetical order, for a total of 50 states plus the District of Columbia.

Introduction From my personal experience, when people who are into time travel discuss the idea, they most often talk about theories behind the time travel concept or paradoxes (such as the Grandfather Paradox). When they talk about actually changing the past (or changing history), they more often than not want to fix a mistake they made in the past. I differ from these people because although I have a rough idea on how to go back in time and change history, I’d rather not get into too many...

Introduction The following paragraphs show a rough idea of a 2nd proposed change in history, the 1st one being about physically/genetically equating cat and dog years with human years, going back thousands or a million or more years. To take a look at the 1st change, go to this article. The 2nd one here is about modern Judaism, going back as early as the 6th century, roughly between 500 and 599 CE.

Introduction This is a revision of the United States presidential election of 1956, the year of Republican President Dwight D. Eisenhower’s landslide reelection. The previous presidential election, the one in 1952, was also a landslide for President Eisenhower. Eisenhower received 55.2% of the popular vote that year to Democrat Adlai Stevenson’s 44.3%, and I intend to keep these totals somewhat similar to that of the current timeline/version of history. In other words, the 1952 election...

Introduction I’ve had a few relatives in my family, including both my grandfathers and my paternal grandmother, who smoked cigarettes a lot longer than they should have, and though they did quit smoking, they paid for their smoking since their lives ended somewhat prematurely as a complication of what they did all those years. With that in mind, I’ve come up with the idea of having alternatives to smoking tobacco come out as early as 1950. This is a revised, abridged history of the vaporizer...

Introduction This is a list of American classical composers, both real and fictional. The fictional ones are intended to become a reality in a separate timeline or in revised history. However, the names of these composers inserted into this list are largely hypothetical. That is, they may or may not be named as such after history is changed. The names of these composers are highlighted in boldface. The purpose of the presence of these composers is to make more compositional geniuses out of...
