The United States presidential election of 1996 was the 53rd quadrennial presidential election. It was held on Tuesday, November 5, 1996. The contest was between the Republican national ticket of President William Morgan from Indiana and Vice President John McCain from Arizona and the Democratic national ticket of California Senator Jerry Brown for President and Massachusetts Senator John Kerry for Vice President.

President Morgan's chances of winning were initially considered guaranteed in the middle of his term as his party had won both the House and the Senate in 1994 for the first time in decades. He was able to regain ground as the economy began to recover from the early 1990s recession with a relatively stable world stage. He went on to win re-election with a substantial margin in the popular vote and electoral college. The Republican Party was able to maintain a majority in both the House of Representatives and the Senate.
