OPPOSITE OUTCOME ON THIS DAY IN 1948

President Harry Truman holds up a copy of the Chicago Daily Tribune declaring his defeat to Thomas Dewey in the presidential election, in St. Louis, Missouri, November 1948.  

In one of the greatest upsets in presidential election history,
Democratic incumbent
Harry S. Truman defeats his Republican challenger, Governor Thomas E. Dewey of New York, by just
over two million popular votes. In the days preceding the vote,
political analysts and polls were so behind Dewey that on
election night, long before all the votes were counted, the
Chicago Tribune published an early edition with the banner
headline
DEWEY DEFEATS TRUMAN (above).”
