    Parliamentary elections were held in Hungary on 12 July, 1981, as a result of the defeat of the Hungarian Socialist Workers' Party prime minister, Imre Pozsgay, in a constructive motion of no confidence. The election was won by the Independent Smallholders' Party, led by Árpád Göncz - who would nonetheless have replaced Pozsagy as Prime Minister had Parliament not been dissolved - who campaigned on an aggressively right-wing platform inspired by those of Ronald Reagan and Margaret Thatcher. [...] The results of the election were considered the most polarizing - and unrepresentative - in Hungarian history; while both the Smallholders and the MSZMP gained seats, this was at the expense of smaller parties, who were left without any parliamentary representation. Furthermore, not only did the Smallholders win a majority of seats without also having a majority of votes, an occurrence common in First-past-the-post systems like the one employed in Hungary at the time, they were actually second-placed, with the most votes being cast for the MSZMP. As a consequence of the ensuing protests, the Göncz government put a reformed electoral law, doubling the National Assembly in size and switching to a German-style mixed-member system, to a popular vote in the so-called "Westminster System abolition referendum" of 1981, where it was adopted by nearly 76 percent of the votes cast.

    It's just three presidential elections in a world where food becomes sentient and politicians,with an emphasis on kitchens as hospitals. It's also sort of a reverse 2000 with a previous republican administration being exchanged for a democratic administration. It also includes references to supreme court justices, political scandals, and several food items as either politicans, political candidates or celebrities. Oh, and white bread and wheat bread standing in for race.

    For the favorite, the number would never be 1.6. The point spread is dictated by Vegas betters and is always either a whole number or a half (like 7.5, 3.5) to try and prevent pushes. Could be 1.5 or 2, but not 1.6.

    Also Coughlin deserves to get canned if knew he needed a touchdown to win and took the points.

    The wikibox doesn't specify who set the spread. If the ATL uses something like FPI to set the spread, 1.6 is perfectly fine.
