Poll question: Best WINNING Democratic Presidential ticket?
Just so we can get some older pairings in there.

Sorry, polls are turned off at Level 3.

1. If by winning,
you mean won by the largest margin, that would be Johnson/Humphrey in 1964.

IIRC they won largest % of the popular vote in American history.

4. I don't mean best in that sense.
I just mean which ticket was the "best" combo, with "best" being defined however one wants to define it.

Johnson/Humphrey won by a margin of 61%-38.5%. 61% remains the largest percentage of the popular vote ever received by a presidential ticket. But Roosevelt/Garner won 60.8%-36.5%, a slightly wider margin.

3. Roosevelt/Truman was a great ticket.

5. Clinton picking Gore in '92 was genius.
I really wasn't very excited by Gore in 2000, but I can't imagine anything that could have been done in between '92 and 2000 (eg, in terms of picking a new running mate in '96) which would have solved that problem.
