The United States presidential election of 1992 was the 52nd quadrennial presidential election, held on Tuesday, November 3, 1992. Al Gore, Jr., the Democratic nominee, defeated incumbent Lowell Weicker, the Republican nominee.

Gore was seen as an avatar of a new generation of Democrats, those that left behind the right-wing tendencies of the Muskie-Jackson Democratic Party, and embraced the moderation of Weicker's Republican Party, combining that with a high-tech, market-friendly economic program, environmental awareness, and social tolerance. This proved to be a winning combination, for Gore and the Democratic Party at large.
