Topic - Thomas Dewey
Almost every candidate who is behind in the polls invokes President Harry S. Truman's come-from-behind victory over New York Gov. Thomas E. Dewey in 1948 to boost the spirits of their supporters.
It has been 64 years since President Truman pulled the upset victory of the 20th century and historians still can't get enough of it.
