Texas Regulars-nobody on this ticket?
Is it true that nobody ran on this ticket-yet it still came with .3% of the votes?
Poorly worded statement
This line "The passing of the 22nd Amendment of the United States Constitution in 1947 renders this election the only occasion in United States history in which a candidate has been allowed to run for a fourth term as president." is misleading or just poorly worded.
Anyone prior to FDR could have ran for as many terms as they were able to, its just that no one ran for a 3rd (and hence 4th) term. Saying no one was 'allowed' to makes it sound like the 22nd amendment allowed him to, when it just closed the door for later Presidents. 184.108.40.206 (talk) 05:41, 17 February 2009 (UTC)
Incorrect number of votes for TN on map
This article said that this was the first election when "either of the major party candidates was born in the 20th century." In addition to not being true (Roosevelt was born in 1882) it was an awkward phrase, so I removed it. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Qwcasd (talk • contribs) 05:25, 3 November 2012 (UTC)
- Why didn't you just edit it? "Either" means one of the two people. And it's the first time one of the candidates (in this case, Dewey) was born in the 20th century. --Richjenkins (talk) 03:39, 8 November 2012 (UTC)
Why is the Republican Party listet above the Democratic Party in this section? The incumbent and winning candidate was a Democrat, and D is before R in alphabet. --220.127.116.11 (talk) 20:10, 13 February 2015 (UTC)
