Why 2024 could be 1956 All Over Again
Strangely, the presidential election of 2024 could resemble that of 1956. To elaborate, in 1956, both of America’s major political parties nominated the same candidates as in 1952. For example, Republicans nominated President Dwight D. Eisenhower (R-Kansas) for a second term in 1956.
Moreover, 1956 was the last time a major party nominated a losing presidential candidate for a second time. Democrats nominated Adlai E. Stevenson II (D-Illinois) for president in 1956. Stevenson lost the 1952 race to Eisenhower.
