Famous Texan LB Johnson dons a pretty red cowboy hat and rides dead ex-Prez Kennedy's coattails to the biggest landslide victory every.

Giddy up LBJ.

Must be nice to think you know more than Wikipedia and Brittanica:

Johnson won by a sweeping landslide. Johnson won the presidency with 61 percent of the vote and the then-widest popular margin in the 20th century — more than 15 million votes

The shirt depicts 1964, not today.

You are wrong.

Nixon is traditionally credited with the largest landslide victory with percentile of eligbile voters (61% to 60.7% johnson). These stats fluxuate and flipflop from time to time. A general margin of error is 5-7% for elections of this type. Many polling centers in the south simply 'guesstimated' during each election due to equipment malfunction/hangin chads/etc... What can I say... Seems will still can't get this right.

The 'true' largest landslide was George Washington (Both terms). He recieved 100% of the electoral college vote each time out.

No one is 'wrong' per say. That doesn't make either of you 'right'.
