He did also run as an independent to Washington State Senate a few times so him becoming this Left Wing ‘People’s Mayor’ or something could be fun.
Somewhere in an alternate universe, Hunter S. Thompson just woke up in a cold sweat.

"Hell, if you wanted to go back in time, you could have an earlier AIDS/HIV epidemic happen right during the tail end of the Summer of Love. In that world, young people are overloading the healthcare system in a panic instead of the old, so you'd see a mass of young people organizing for universal healthcare (during the heyday of late-20th-century activism) fighting against older folks who are saying "I told you so" with their ballots. That could create an interesting scenario where political polarization is at an equal magnitude to OTL's present, but it's broken across generational lines with boomers of all people being shifted to the left permanently."

The problem I see with this is that the 1960s were not evenly distributed. America may be different I guess but my parents studied in London at the time and talked about what a shock it was too see the values and fashions of what we think of as the 60s now. I wonder how many people, especially in small towns and very religious communities, would actually become more socially conservative

Oh lord, that's true - "we legalised gay sex and look, within months there was a Gay Plague." Eeesh.

Yeah, that's the point, hence the twelve straight years of Republican presidencies. The fiscal policies of the late 60s and 70s are what breaks this rule apart, and Gore Vidal, a pseudo-political leader who rode the wave of HIV-related discontent to federal office representing an increasingly-less-red California, becomes president on a platform of taking us back to the good old days of Kennedy. After twelve years of malaise, malcontent, and increasing pseudo-martial law decrees against protestors, a lot of the young people who were sympathetic to the ideals of the civil rights and Vietnam protests but didn't actively protest (i.e. Joe Biden) start to shift left.

tl;dr imagine a "Ford wins '76->Dem '80s" tl but with a little more "lawh'n'ordah" mixed in.

List of Prime Ministers of United Kingdom
2015-2016:
David Cameron (Conservative)
2015 def: Ed Miliband (Labour), Nicola Sturgeon (SNP), Nick Clegg (Liberal Democrats), Leanne Wood (Plaid Cymru), Nigel Farage (UKIP), Natalie Bennett (Green)
2016: Theresa May (Conservative)
2016-2021:
Theresa May (Democracy)
2017 def: Nigel Farage (Reform), Keir Starmer/Nicola Sturgeon/Tim Farron/Leanne Wood/Caroline Lucas (Progressive Alliance), Jeremy Corbyn (Socialist), Norman Lamb (Radical)
2021-0000: Andy Burnham (Democracy)

The aftermath of the EU referendum, in which the UK voted narrowly to leave, was a time of great upheaval in British politics. Despite the best efforts of Prime Minister Cameron and the left-wing Leader of the Opposition, Andy Burnham, the country rejected their united but uninspiring vision of more of the same, in favour of the mystery-box offered by various fractious Leave campaigns. Cameron resigned instantly; Burnham did not. But the experience of sharing a platform in the Remain campaign set some strategists thinking, and the election of Theresa May as the new Tory leader signalled a turn towards Christian-democratic, positive thinking from the Conservatives. Within months, May and Burnham had negotiated a merger between the Conservative and Labour parties in favour of a broadly centrist social vision and a Norway-style soft Brexit.

This was not plain sailing. On the Tory side, the hardcore Brexiteers swept out of the party to join forces with Nigel Farage under the label of the 'Reform' party, a blatant piece of nomenclative larceny from the Canadians. Meanwhile, the Labour Party conference rejected a merger with the hated Tories - although as two thirds of their MPs had already signed up, this was (as one sexist wag put it) a case of locking the stable door after Jess Philips had bolted. The remnants of the Labour Party, formed of Stop-Brexit activists and Labour-Till-I-Die types, chose Keir Starmer (decidedly of that first mould), a brand-new MP, as their new frontman, and he engaged positively with the rising tide of debate around a 'Progressive Alliance' of anti-Brexit parties. However, he didn't impress in any other respect, notably failing to prevent the ludicrous multicephalous leadership structure. The PA came off in the end - but at the cost of further fractures in the political scene, with Norman Lamb heading a splinter group of relative conservatives and Brexit moderates out of the Lib Dems. They called themselves the Radical Party, not because of any sort of radicalism, but because they were getting back to the roots of Liberalism. Lib Dem humour is a little bit sui generis.

Labour split once more over the Progressive Alliance issue, with a small group of tribalists and leftists seeking to register as 'Real Labour' or 'Provisional Labour'. However, these efforts were denied by the Electoral Commission as the proposals was too close to the name of the Labour Party, which was a protected designation of the PA. This, argued the Real Labour group, was precisely the point they were trying to make. Instead, they had to call themselves the Socialist Party of the United Kingdom, although this precipitated another split when the non-socialists walked out. The remnant Socialists elected Jeremy Corbyn as leader, since they thought it had been unfair that he'd narrowly failed to be nominated for the Labour leadership in 2015.

With Article 50 finally submitted and planning for Brexit creaking into action, Theresa May called a general election to electorally validate 'Democracy' ('Democratic Party' was taken) and hopefully get rid of some of the tiresome grouplets on the Opposition benches. Although there had been fears that Labour voters wouldn't take to the new party, the rubbishness of the organisations headed by Starmer and Corbyn pushed them towards the May-Burnham axis. Their far-sighted social care funding policy was a particular vote-winner among the youth, but retirees departed for the shores of the Reform Party, who came second with 145 seats. A strong parliamentary majority, however, was dealt to May.

Since then, the effects of Brexit and of the Uncommon Cold pandemic have ensured that May's tenure of the top job will be remembered as one of the most ill-fated and unpleasant in modern history, and the smile on her face as she handed over to Andy Burnham (this was prearranged at the foundation of Democracy, and in order to prevent Blair-Brown shenanigans, May had unveiled a large stone carved with the pledge 'I will resign in favour of Andy in five years' - it became known as the Granite Pact) spoke volumes. Next year, Burnham will face fresh challenges from the Right, as Boris Johnson succeeds the retiring (but never shy) Farage. The Left, however, shouldn't trouble the scorers too much: the Socialists have collapsed in an acrimonious shit-fight about anti-semitism and other forms of racism, while the Progressive Alliance has suffered a split from a minority group called the 'Transgressive Alliance', whose accusations of transphobia against the PA have taken on a rather indecorous and uncivil character.
