First winning ticket with no WASPs?[edit]

From the article: "The Obama-Biden ticket was also the first winning ticket in American history on which neither candidate was a White Anglo-Saxon Protestant."

That isn't accurate: McKinley/Roosevelt were Scotch-Irish and Dutch respectively; Eisenhower/Nixon were both German-Americans. I bet there are other examples. WASP shouldn't be used as a synonym for "white Protestant." marbeh raglaim (talk) 22:53, 14 June 2019 (UTC)

Alan Keyes, "America's Independent Party," no Wiki article?[edit]

Hi, in the Results sub-section, why isn't the above titled America's Independent (political party) a hyperlink to a Wikipedia article? I found America's Party, but several articles end up saying, 1) "Create Page," or 2) are disambiguation, or 3) are confused with the ol' "Independent Party" actual party, or 4) are not to be confused with Americans who vote (small i) independently, or lastly are 5) about those like Nader who align with no Official Party at all.. Any ideas? -Peter aka Vid2vid (talk) 03:20, 14 July 2019 (UTC)

P.S. If one Googles, "America's Independent Party," the following results:

"Did you mean: American Independent Party
