Kennedy v. Nixon

The Kennedy–Nixon contest fell into three phases. The first ran from the end of the Republican convention to the eve of the first presidential debate, July 28–September 25. The second encompassed the period of the four presidential debates, September 26–October 21. The final stage was the last two and a half weeks of the campaign, October 22–November 7. Kennedy prevailed in the first two rounds, but Nixon closed with a rush and almost pulled off a political upset that, if he had managed it, would have ranked second only to Harry Truman's comeback victory in 1948.
