This article devotes several paragraphs to the Novak "amnesty, abortion and legalization of pot" stuff. I suggest that this be cut. First, it is unsourced, and second, Novak is not a reliable journalist IMO. Penskeer (talk) 00:13, 25 August 2012 (UTC)
There was some editor who years ago inserted that material in about a dozen different articles. I weeded it out of several places before and it should be taken out of here as well. Wasted Time R (talk) 00:16, 25 August 2012 (UTC)
In that case, I'll remove it. Penskeer (talk) 00:20, 25 August 2012 (UTC)
I don't believe the McGovern campaign believed it "would win" just because of the inclusion of 18-20 year-olds in the vote. They knew it would help them perhaps significantly, no doubt, and I'm sure they were positive about it, but they always knew it was going to be an uphill battle against the incumbent Nixon. The cited article is not being specific as to the overall campaign. In this interview http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a203s39qPuI the campaign is rehashed by the participants, including Senator McGovern. I believe rewording this sentence does not take away from the spirit of the meaning. I also don't believe any campaign would automatically assume they would win for any single issue or condition.
