Election Chokes

Tim G looks at some election chokes – where the party or candidate that should have won, choked and didn’t. His top 5 are:

  1. Victoria Premier Jeff Kennett in 1999
  2. Thomas Dewey in the 1948 US Presidential election
  3. Shimon Peres repeatedly
  4. Australian Liberal Leader John Hewson in 1983
  5. Al Gore in 2000

If Tony Abbott doesn’t win this September, he will make the list.
