    To avoid a very long, complex and probably boring detailed explanation -

    No.

    No fucking way. Nobody even heard of Nixon until after RFK was shot. Not that they literally never heard of him. People still remember Nixon getting his ass kicked by JFK in their televised debate 8 years before. But the buzz about RFK running really jacked up this country. He got all the attention and all the news coverage.

    One particular speech was quite memorable. It was in Indiannapolis the night MLK got shot. And RFK had to inform the crowd of what happened. Now this was a predominately black crowd and they were concerned about what would happen after they announced the news to people in attendance. Because all over the country they were rioting after hearing word of MLK's death. But RFK went out there and told them MLK had been killed. He also told them he knows what they're going through. He said, "I to had a brother that was killed..." and the crowd really connected with what he was saying. That night, there were no riots in Indiannapolis.

    Not likely. People would have imagined seeing JFK's ghost standing at the voting booth, politely opening the curtain for them as they entered. But that was a long ago era when the Democratic Party was still pro America.
