Abraham Lincoln vs Barack Obama in the elections of 1860, who wins more votes IN THE SOUTH?  This one should be a little harder as historicly Lincoln wasn't on southern ballots and the south would not vote for a black man at this time.

Barack would destroy him since Lincoln was a terrible speaker.

I'd heard he was the exact opposite?

I heard Lincoln was quite the good speaker as well.

Back then Presidents won because of their actual credintianls. How they were quoted in the newspapers is what people across the country saw. In todays superficial world, Lincoln wouldn't have stood a chance of winning the Presidency.

YEs! I was correct!

No, you were wrong. The reason Lincoln won was because he was a great speaker. The newspapers were the only communication for the vast majority of the country; no tv to see his face on. The fact that he was a very ugly man by today's standards would have made listening to him on the tv a difficult task for most non-educated people in todays world.

I was merely commenting on how Presidents won because of what they were about, not because of how they looked.Television has vastly changed how polititions are elected in this country today.

Here, to help prove my point, back in 1960, John F. Kennedy and Richard Nixon squared off in some of the greatest debates this country has ever seen. When the votes for those who saw the debates on tv came in, Kennedy won handily. When the votes for those who listened to the debates on the radio came in, Nixon won handily.

Actually seeing the candidate makes a huge difference.

In this case here, Obama would have lost handily because the news of him being black would have reached every southerner. With it being a time of definate inequality, it would have been an ugly loss.

But to today's standards wouldn't Lincoln be a bad speaker compared to Obama?

No. Lincoln would still be amazing.
