ABSTRACT
The article offers an opinion on the way to stop the U.S. presidential nomination of George McGovern in 1972. Some methods are available by which delegates to conventions can be persuaded to change their preferences when the stake is sufficiently high. It believes that to deprive McGovern of the nomination would inevitably provoke an open party split and a third-party ticket.
