33. Both parties did not play those kind of dirty tricks
Democrats are much less likely to do that sort of thing, and this operation was massive and involved illegal use of government agencies to attack Democrats. Nixon did steal the election by systematically decimating each Democratic challenger until only McGovern was left. Nixon wanted to run against McGovern so he destroyed the others, which was what the "rat-fucking" was about. The break-in at the Watergate was fairly minor; it simply became the opening which led to uncovering much more serious corruption.
