The United States presidential election of 1968 was the 46th quadrennial presidential election, held on Tuesday, November 5, 1968. Nelson Rockefeller, the Republican nominee, defeated incumbent Wayne Morse, the Democratic nominee.

Although very popular among liberals and students, many pundits throughout Morse's first term argued that, with the right nominee, the Republicans would have little trouble unseating him. The consensus revolved around Rockefeller, who easily captured the nomination and presidency.
