NOTE: The most obvious candidate for this chart, The Candidate, fell outside the 1978-Present parameters, but we'll try to find a gross for it and fold it in later. ""Campaign"" is used in the broadest sense here to include movies about the political games played, not just elections. If there are any movies that you think should be on this list, e-mail us at mail@boxofficemojo.com.
