I always had Archie pegged as a Nixon guy, but Wallace was probably who he voted for. I doubt that he was actually registered to any political party-- Republicans would have seemed too hoity-toity, and as you point out, he'd have wanted no truck with the Democrats. Was he bitter? Hell, yeah-- that was the joke.



Whoever he voted for in '68, by the time the show was on the air, he was proudly Nixon:

"Let me tell you one thing about Richard E. Nixon. He knows keep his wife, Pat, home. Roosevelt could never do that with Eleanor. She was always out on the loose. Runnin' around with the coloreds. Tell'in them they was getting the short end of the stick. She was the one that discovered the coloreds in this country, we never knew they was there."


The Archie Bunker of the first season of "All in the Family" was not the same person we saw when "Archie Bunker's Place" ended the tale.

Archie grew and changed, as did our nation.
