Does any party or candidate have Axis sympathies, because, let's face it, as distasteful as the fact is, it's VERY likely there would be in a continued existing Confederacy at that time, especially given there sympathetic people in the real Deep South in that period who did have such sympathies (William Pelley, who I notice is NOT running in your list above, from North Carolina and the leader of the Silver Shirt Legion was in fact an overt and blatant self-proclaimed fascist and ran as such as a minor candidate in 1936 in RL, advocating, amongst other things, the US joining the burgeoning Axis alliance), and the modern Aryan Brotherhood movement, which supports many Nazi (if not Italian Fascist or Japanese Imperialist) ideals was originally of the KKK, who didn't really have contradictory views on many of those ideas, at least the societal ones. I know it's not a pleasant thought, but just a historical reality. And, in my opinion, as in Sir Winston Churchill's, deliberate revision of history, even if for seemingly 'benign' or 'patriotic' purposes, or to 'better deal with in retrospect great travesties and crimes against humanity,' is, in and of itself (the deliberate historical revisions, that is) a crime against humanity itself, even if a non-violent one.

There was a pretty sizable support for the Nazi party in the US at the time all around the country.  There were even organizations who has the equivalent of Storm troopers ready.

Although Pelley would probably run in this scenario as well, he would probably still have little support as he did in real life when he ran.
