Campaign 1976

September 1976
National Review;9/17/1976, Vol. 28 Issue 35, p992
The article ponders on the national election in the U.S. in 1976. Americans considered themselves conservatives this year. Democratic liberals were rejected in the primaries by Democratic voters, and the former clustered around a Sunbelt chameleon for reasons of self-preservation. Meanwhile, liberalism was virtually extinct in the Republican Party. If the Watergate scandal did not occur, former U.S. President Richard Nixon would be completing his second term. Moreover, politician John Connally, who served as U.S. Secretary of State for three years, would have been nominated at the Republican Convention.
