Dewey Defeats Truman!


Don Walker, in the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, today: "The Drudge Report this afternoon breathlessly reports that exit polls from Tuesday's recall election show Gov. Scott Walker holding his seat. One problem, though. He provides no information to suggest that.... Republical and Democratic sources in Wisconsin told the Journal Sentinel that the numbers used by the Drudge Report are wrong."

For those of you in Rio Lina, Harry S. Truman defeated Thomas E. Dewey in the U.S. Presidential election of Nov. 3, 1948, despite the embarrassingly inaccurate banner headline on the front page of the Chicago Tribune.
