|It's not like they call him Young Kinderhook|
|Nixon's Head||8 (38.1%)|
|Martin Van Buren||13 (61.9%)|
This came as a bit of a surprise. With Spiro Agnew doing most of the fighting, we expected Nixon's Head to eke out a win. Instead, Van Buren pulled out the win by quite a margin. How did this happen?
Martin Van Buren will advance to the 2nd Round, where he is scheduled to face Ronald Reagan Oct. 10. Stay tuned for Monday, when polls open for James K. Polk vs. Harry S Truman. In the meantime, any NYC-area readers best beware... the Van Buren Boys are going to be whooping it up tonight.
