1952 Presidential Election
After Robert Taft's stunning victories in early polling from Gallup, Dwight Eisenhower, instead of entering the Primaries, runs as an independent, to "Save his Party", he quickly dominates polling as Taft flunders about with his VP picks, finally selecting Anti Communist Congressman Richard Nixon, the reason for Ike's forecomings is that he actually campaigned quite extensively, while Taft's illnesses prevent him from going out in large states, especially during the 1952 February Winter, though Stevenson receives a large bump in September when South Korea manages to push northward and nearly captures Pyongyang, and by December of '52, North and South Korea sign an armistice.

A pair cases that strike a blow against Representational Democracy and a third case set in the same universe that strikes a blow for the First Amendment.

Next in my series, here's Quebec's next legislative election:

Following Lucien Bouchard's resignation as Prime Minister to run for President, the Parti Quebecois chose Pauline Marois as party leader and Prime Minister. The Liberals, meanwhile, chose Martin Cauchon as their leader.

Though Marois was initially popular, she stumbled early on. Worse for Marois, voters were simply getting tired of the government that had led them since 1994.

Cauchon was able to lead the Liberals to a 8-percent lead of PQ, but the PQ's historically efficient vote led to the Liberals winning just two seats more than the PQ.

Presidents of Quebec:
Jacques Parizeau (
Parti Quebecois) 1996-2001
Lucien Bouchard (
Parti Quebecois) 2001-20XX

Prime Ministers of Quebec:
Lucien Bouchard (Parti Quebecois) 1996-2001
Pauline Marois (
Parti Quebecois) 2001-2004
Martin Cauchon (Liberal) 2004-20XX

Prime Ministers of Canada:
Jean Chretien (Liberal) 1993-1997
Brian Tobin (Liberal) 1997-1998

Joe Clark (Progressive Conservative) 1998-2001

European Union likes United States bipartisan system
Very nice, only thing I can see that might be off is that Scotland is a constituency of the European Parliament, rather being considered a country, though I suppose that might have changed ITTL.
 
1976 US Presidential Election
In America Ford comes into the election stronger after making a deal with Ronald Reagan to become Attorney General. Meanwhile the "Anyone But Carter" campaign picks up earlier and Carter makes the snap decision to make Frank Church his running mate. His "show stealing" undermines Carter and with Gerald Ford's promise that the "Soviet Domination of Eastern Europe will not destroy the spirits of its citizens" the close election gives Ford and Dole a second term.



1980 US Election
Four years later the USA is mired in stagflation, embassy staff are being held hostage in Tehran (with a dozen who escaped being killed after attempting to hide in another embassy) and Ford's administration is getting all the blame. Bob Dole drops out early in the campaign and the nomination goes to congressman George Bush. Meanwhile Ted Kennedy easily gets the Democrat's nomination and campaigns on Healthcare reform and Ford's record. An "October Surprise", the negotiated release of the hostages in Iran is not capitalized on by the Republicans due to Bush's previous discrediting of the administration responsible. As a result, Kennedy cruises to victory. His win causes nervousness in Britain due to Ted's support for a United Ireland.
