US Election 1992

Election of 1992 Summary

The US election in 1992 was a legitimate three-way race. It involved Republican George H.W. Bush, Democrat Bill Clinton, and independent candidate Ross Perot.

As George H.W. Bush wrapped up his first term, he was still relatively favored. Despite saying he wouldn’t raise taxes, he did exactly that. And Bill Clinton’s character was already in question and his past was already starting to haunt him.

Early in his campaign, billionaire Ross Perot gained steam. But he flip-flopped by suspending his run for president for a bit. Later, he returned quite possibly losing some of his voters in the process.

During the election, it was a tight race. But Bill Clinton won with 370 electoral votes and became the 42nd president of the United States. George H.W. Bush finished second with 168 electoral votes. Finally, Ross Perot couldn’t get any electoral votes. But he still had 18.9% of the popular vote.
