This Day in the History of Historic Upsets

On this day in 1948, Harry S Truman defeated Thomas Dewey to the surprise of pollsters and newspapers, in perhaps the greatest presidential upset in U.S. history. Would that we could repeat that in two days, but I fear the odds are about 13 to 1 against. Possible, but not bloody likely. Looks like Chicago papers were writing stories before the event back then too.
