Designed for the undecided voters of the 1976 presidential election, this button underscores the derisiveness permeating the 1976 election. Voters had to choose between a relative unknown, a Democratic candidate from Georgia by the name of Jimmy Carter, or the seemingly awkward incumbent Gerald Ford. In the end, the American people chose Carter. His modest upbringing on a Georgia peanut farm, for many at least, had been a welcome change. The majority of Americans had simply become disillusioned with the perceived ruthlessness and callousness of Capital Hill insiders amidst the aftermath of Watergate.
