Prior to Trump, it was 1928 the last time the GOP won without a Nixon or a Bush on the ticket. Americans have always elected the sleaziest candidate they could find. It seems the GOP has a hard time finding somebody sleazy enough, but the Dems have no such problem.
And, since some nitwit always challenges that, here is the list:
Herbert Hoover March 4, 1929 – March 4, 1933 NO BUSH, NO NIXON
Ike January 20, 1953 – January 20, 1961 VP Richard Nixon
Richard Nixon January 20, 1969 – August 9, 1974
Ronald Reagan January 20, 1981 – January 20, 1989 VP George H. W. Bush
George H. W. Bush January 20, 1989 – January 20, 1993
George W. Bush January 20, 2001 – January 20, 2009
Really no matter who is in office, he/she will never be able to fully satisfy mankind's needs. This is because : God did not create humans to live independently of his rulership and be successful. For their benefit he made them dependent on his righteous laws. The prophet Jeremiah acknowledged: “I well know, O Jehovah, that to earthling man his way does not belong. It does not belong to man who is walking even to direct his step. Correct me, O Jehovah.” (Jeremiah 10:23, 24)
Clearly, God knew that the human family could never be successful in regulating itself without his rulership. In a vain attempt to be independent of God’s rule, humans have set up different political, economic, and religious systems. These differences have brought people into constant conflict with one another, resulting in violence, war, and death. “Man has dominated man to his injury.” (Ecclesiastes 8:9) That is just what has happened throughout human history. As foretold in God’s Word, wicked men and impostors have continued to “advance from bad to worse.” (2 Timothy 3:13) And the 20th century, which saw mankind reach great heights in scientific and industrial achievement, saw the worst calamities ever. The words of Jeremiah 10:23 have been abundantly proved—humans were not created to direct their own steps.
The tragic, long-term consequences of independence from God have once and for all demonstrated that rulership by humans can never succeed. God’s rulership is the only way to happiness, unity, health, and life. That is why I cast my vote for Jesus Christ, head of God's government. And God’s Word shows that Jehovah’s toleration of independent human rule is nearing its end. (Matthew 24:3-14; 2 Timothy 3:1-5) Shortly, he will intervene in human affairs to assert his rulership over the earth.
