Anachronisms 

The road Nixon is traveling along to get to the ranch in 1972 has yellow markings. At that time, although the USA was replacing the white ones, country roads would have not been changed, and even if it had been changed, the marking would not have been faded.

Crew or equipment visible 

At about one hour 40 minutes in, when Nixon and his associates are discussing what to do about Daniel Ellsberg's leak of the Pentagon Papers and Nixon says to Kissinger "...this Ellsberg, wasn't he a student of yours at Harvard?" a long-haired crew member can be seen attempting to duck out of the right-hand side of the next shot.

Factual errors 

The film shows Nixon signing his resignation letter the day before he leaves office and prior to it being publicly announced. Historically, Nixon informed the nation in an address the night before leaving office, and then signed the letter the next day, which was his last morning in the White House.

When Nixon travels to Texas in November 1963 on behalf of Studebaker, the auto company is promoting its 1963 line of cars. In November 1963 they would already be promoting their 1964 models.

Numerous scenes throughout the movie feature President Nixon seated or standing in front of a crackling log fire, particularly in the scene where he talks to the portrait of Abraham Lincoln. Although in each scene real logs can be heard crackling, hissing, and popping, as real wood will do, close-ups of the fire reveal it to be a "fake" natural gas fireplace, with artificial logs that are "burning" evenly and cleanly with a vertical flame, and no smoke or embers coming off them.
