    From Wiki, sadly: “President Richard Nixon, who is criticized in the song, won a landslide reelection in 1972, which included winning the 1972 United States presidential election in Ohio by a margin of over 21%.”

        You can’t gerrymander the presidential election. There are no districts in that election.

        You can however influence it with bribes, coercion, and intimidation.

          True.

      Yes. That was the election Nixon was actively cheating in, given that the Watergate commission was able to trace it right up to the president.
