Article: The Ghosts of ’68 Haunt the Election of 2016
#3
The biggest problem I see in comparing 2016 to 1968 is that, for all his faults, Donald Trump has won the GOP nomination fair and square through a mostly democratic process.  In 1968 party bosses were still in control, installing in Humphrey when the masses preferred RFK or McCarthy.  Perhaps there was potential for a comparison through a brokered convention, but now Trump's GOP rivals, one by one, are falling in line.
