Election 2016

Before the election of 1948, the presidency was a lock for Republican Thomas Dewey–so said the polls. About two week's after Clifford Berryman's cartoon was published, Harry S. Truman held aloft a copy of the Chicago Tribune, headlined "DEWEY DEFEATS TRUMAN," hist jubilance signaling his upset victory.
