Below is an ad for Richard Nixon in his campaign for President in 1968. He was making a comeback of sorts that year as he had lost in a previous bid in 1960 for President and in 1962 for Governor of California. The content of the ad is designed to make you draw conclusions about the country’s Vietnam policy under President Lyndon Johnson. Johnson, a Democrat, decided ultimately to not run for re-election. His Vice-President Hubert H. Humphrey ran instead. Humphrey lost and Nixon went on to getting re-elected in 1972 as well.
Based on its visuals, could an ad like this be run today?
