The United States presidential election of 1964 was the 45th quadrennial presidential election, held on Tuesday, November 3, 1964. Wayne Morse, the Democratic nominee, defeated Robert Taft, as an independent, and Richard Nixon, the Republican nominee.

After Warren's disastrous second term, the Republican party was left in chaos. Conservative Vice President Robert Taft struck out as an independent after losing the nomination to liberal Attorney General Richard Nixon, and, with the Republican vote split, Morse was easily elected.
