On the 7th November 1972 Richard Nixon was re-elected as president.
"...In terms of what a victory really is a huge landslide margin means nothing at all unless it is a victory for America. It will be a victory for America only if in these next four years, we all of us, can work together to achieve our common great goals of peace at home and peace for all nations in the world and for that new progress and prosperity that all Americans deserve."
