The 1972 United States Presidential election was contested on November 7, 1972 to elect a President of the United States. At the height of his popularity, incumbent President Hubert Humphrey of Minnesota, a Socialist, defeated former Democratic Governor George W. Romney of Michigan in a landslide. No Socialist, as of 2013, has reached a margin of victory in either the electoral college or popular vote as great as Humphrey's.
