  1. 3. Nixon emphasized the strong economy and his success in foreign affairs, while McGovern ran on a platform calling for an immediate end to the Vietnam War, in the 1972 election.
    4. Some argued that such actions must be authorized by Congress under the War Powers Resolution, which was passed over President Nixon's veto in 1973.

  2. So 3 would be true and 4 would be false?

  3. #3 is false, as you "called it". Vietnam was very much a part of the 1972 election campaign. #4 is false. Congress did resist Nixon's efforts to run things as he saw fit, especially the expansion of the war in southeast Asia.
