US Election 1996

Election of 1996 Summary

In the 1996 election, Bill Clinton went for re-election for the Democratic party. He found himself up against Bob Dole, who was attacked mostly for his age and being out of touch with the present time.

Ross Perot was back for his second election and created the brand new Reform party. But he couldn’t participate in live television debates, so he believed this really hurt his chances of winning the election.

When the votes were counted, Bill Clinton remained president until his impeachment. He won by a significant margin of 379 electoral votes compared to just 159 from Bob Dole.
