The United States presidential election of 1992 was the 52nd quadrennial presidential election. It was held on Tuesday, November 3, 1992. There were two major candidates: Incumbent Democratic Vice President Lloyd Bentsen and Republican Indiana Senator William Morgan.

The economy was also in the midst of a recession and Bradley's perceived greatest strengths was regarded as much less important following the dissolution of the Soviet Union and the relatively peaceful climate in the Middle East after the defeat of Iran in the Persian Gulf War.

Morgan won a plurality in the popular vote, and a wide Electoral College margin. The election was a significant realigning election after three consecutive Democratic landslides. Northeastern,Upper Midwest, and West Coast states which had previously been competitive began voting reliably Democratic after this election.
