Would it have led to a backlash in the election?
Oh, no question, of course.
Can you start by when I say, "It would have lead to a backlash," just repeat part of the question?
Oh, lead to a backlash, my goodness there's no question. A terrible backlash, because there were many people who felt, that the Civil Right's Movement had gotten too many things already. You know, we'd gotten the Civil Right's Bill passed, you know, many things had happened, nationally, you know after President Kennedy was killed and Johnson was doing, President Johnson was doing, I think a terrific job, on the domestic front. And, ah, I think there are many people in this country who thought that we had given, the Blacks enough. You know.
