Walter Mondale lost a state election in every state. Does this make him persistent?

  • Yes it does.

    Walter Mondale is the kind of person that does not easily give up, and for this reason alone he would have made a great president. It shows a strength of charcter that he kept going despite the odds being stacked against him, and he likely would have done well as the leader of the US.

  • No, I don`t think so.

    Walter Mondale did not become president by losing every state, because that is not the electoral process. Mondale needed to have won these states in order to become President. A candidate needs 270 to win the Presidency, and Mondale did not even come close. The rules are what they are, and Mondale did not succeed to become president.

  • It makes him a loser

    Mondale ran into the buzzsaw that was Ronald Reagan in the early 80s, so there's really no faulting him for losing an election in every state. The result was less about his persistence and more about the great campaign of his opponent. He got blown out and to this day people refer to a blowout in a national election as a "Mondale."

  • He did not win the election.

    Walter Mondale did not become president by losing every state, because that is not the electoral process. Mondale needed to have won these states in order to become President.
