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.
