Two historians, David Corn and Max Holland, believe JFK was shot by a lone shooter and both focus mainly on why Oswald shot Kennedy.

One of the issue focused on the JFK assassination was whether or not he would have won his next election. The 1964 presidential election could have had a totally different result if JFK would have ran for it. According to Yahoo News “JFK had a popularity rating that was 58 percent right before his assassination”. Also, according to constitution center, “that number was higher than Richard Nixon, Ronald Reagan, Bill Clinton, George W.
