This was the 51st presidential election in American history. The economy was in stride. Reagan finished with strict penalties for drug traffickers. And as the tradition goes, Reagan decided to not run for a third term.

For the Republicans, the front-runner became George H.W. Bush. Then, Michael Dukakis got the nod for the Democrats. But George H.W. Bush had a much more aggressive campaign than Dukakis. Also, he had a bit of momentum from Reagan’s success.
