WASHINGTON, Aug. 8, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Following is the daily "Profile America" feature from the U.S. Census Bureau:
Profile America —Friday, August 8th. On this date 40 years ago, President Richard Nixon announced on a nationwide broadcast from the Oval Office his resignation, effective the next day. The resignation and departure from the White House was in response to the long building, wide-ranging Watergate scandal and the recent passage of likely successful articles of impeachment in the House of Representatives. Just 21 months earlier, Nixon had won re-election as President in one of our most notable landslides and still the largest margin of victory in the popular vote. In that 1972 election, Nixon received almost 61 percent of the nearly 78 million votes cast, with a turnout of over 55 percent. In the 2012 election, nearly 133 million Americans voted, almost 62 percent of those registered. Profile America is in its 17th year as a public service of the U.S. Census Bureau.
