Test your political knowledge: the answer

Yesterday’s political poser was:

The Swedish election of 1956 saw a political first. What was it?

The answer? This was the first election to feature a televised debate. Forget Kennedy, Nixon and 1960: it was the Swedes in 1956 who led the way.

Congratulations to Bernard Salmon for being first with the answer.

(By the way, the 1948 US Presidential election had a set of pre and post surveys to gauge why people voted the way they did, which is why¬†Oranjepan’s and Toby were both wrong.)

I’ll search further in the recesses of history next time to try to fox you all…
