Nixon's main failure was arrogance. He considered his becoming POTUS to have been predestined. He also targeted minorities and white liberals directly with his policies, especially with respect to illicit drug use. Then there's the whole Southern Strategy, which he played a large role in, which is still haunting us to this day. The semi-normalization of diplomacy with China and the creation of the EPA are about the only things I'm willing to give him credit for. Which is ironic, since the people he was trying to court with the Southern Strategy are the very same people now destroying the EPA and damaging relations with China.
