This is a button showing support for Jimmy Carter in his 1976 Presidential election. "Peanut" is an affectionate nickname for Jimmy Carter given to him because he used to work on a peanut farm. The slogan on the button "Put a Peanut in Every Pot" is a play on words of  "to put a chicken in every pot," a phrase used by Herbert Hoover in the 1928 election as he promised to voters prosperity and abundance. Hoover announced that if he wins, there would be “a chicken in every pot and a car in every garage.”
