I don't think he was a stupid man, so I'm pretty sure he was rather confidant in his voting even up till then.
Lyndon Johnson changed a lot with regard to the Democratic Party. There were plenty of people, I'd imagine, who were happy with the New Deal but felt the Great Society was going too far. Notice in the very next election after LBJ passed all his stuff, a lot of people voted Republcan (Nixon), and then McGovern came along, who was endorsed by LBJ, and Nixon won again in a landslide....In many ways the Great Society did go too far, too fast. Basically shoved a bunch of crap down people's throats within 2 years which radically altered the country.
Son when a girl breaks up with you and says" oh it's not you, its me" trust me, its you, she is tired of your ass and she is gone.
Reagan changed, he matured, when confronted with logic he was not rigid he reacted to it. Learn from him he was a wise man.
A good example of why you should look at voting records, history, and the man is this.
Several years ago during the Senate race in S.C., Lindsey Graham was the Republican and Bob Conley was the Democrat.
Graham defeated a much more conservative Bobby Witherspoon in the primary for the nomination and then went on to defeat the Democrat .....who again held much more conservative stances than Graham.
The AmericanSpecator called Graham "The worst Republican Senator" and he's the biggest RINO in the Senate....yet there are people on this board that think that someohow returning the R over the D to Washington limits the left wing power structure?
Oh...Conley's challenger even admitted that they had just nominated a Republican during a Democratic primary.
