He won by a landslide after becoming president by accident when Kennedy was killed. He became "the people's choice" and it must have given him confidence to push his programs through Congress in the belief that he had the people behind him

Andrew Johnson did nothing to help newly freed slaves. He was more concerned with helping White people who were hurt by the Civil War, especially Southerns.

When is a President more likely to be successful in using persuasive skills with Congress?

I'm not sure exactly what you are looking for, but here is one possible answer. When the president and the majority of Congress is of the same party the President will use persuasive ways to get his bills passed. The president will appear at campaign stops in order to help get the congressmen on his side. Congressmen up for election need a lot of money for re-election and a visiting president will get him that money. This is happening right now for the 2006 elections. Bush is visiting with GOP congressmen at privite donation dinners. He is also making public stops with them, but not too many, because his ratings are real low at this point. Hope this help, Christopher Moats http://backup.visuallink.com

How did the Republican Party 'help Johnson achieve the kind of victory he desired' in the 1964 presidential election?

Lyndon Johnson was elected as the youngest minority leader in Senate. Soon after election the democrats had won majority leader in the senate. This gained Johnson huge skill which he later obtained passage of a number of key Eisenhower measures. Later in the 1960 campaign, Kennedy was Johnson running mate, Kennedy ended up winning and Johnson made the Vice President. After Kennedy died Johnson was sworn in as president. In 1964 Johnson won presidency with over 15,000,000 votes. The republican party was a ruling group of the time in the nation and though Kennedy wanted to stop civil rights, he never got time to. So the republicans in the nation all swarmed to Johnson to a new civil rights bill and tax cuts. source: whitehouse.gov
