On this day in 1968, the United States presidential election was the 46th quadrennial U.S. presidential election. The Republican nominee, former
Vice President Richard Nixon, defeated the Democratic nominee,
incumbent Vice President Hubert Humphrey.

Analysts have argued the election of 1968 was a major realigning election
as it permanently disrupted the New Deal Coalition that had dominated
presidential politics for 36 years.
