Assume that Watergate, and Agnew’s tax fraud never come to light, and Spiro wins the 1976 GOP nomination. How would you vote in this hypothetical election.

if we're assuming that Agnew's corruption never came to light, I imagine that even if I was not aware of or fond of Governor Agnew, Howard Baker's presence on the ticket would assuage my concerns. And if Agnew's corruption should lead to his resignation in disgrace while in office, then all the better for rightful President Howard Baker
