PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This is a 17 slide, highly animated, power point presentations on US Presidential Elections - Election of 1948, 1952 & 1956 - Truman-IKE. Each of the presentation slides are editable so you can change it to fit your individual needs.

In the election of 1948, President Harry S. Truman, who had succeeded President Roosevelt after his death in 1945, stood for reelection on the Democratic ticket with Alben Barkley of KY as his running mate. The Republican slate consisted of 2 prominent governors: Thomas E. Dewey of NY and Earl Warren of CA. Results were uncertain to the last minute. A well-known photograph shows Truman the day after the election smiling broadly and holding aloft a newspaper with the headline Dewey Wins!

When President Harry S. Truman declined to run for a 3rd term in 1952, the Democratic convention nominated Governor Adlai E. Stevenson of IL for president on the 3rd ballot. Senator John Sparkman of AL was chosen as his running mate. The Republican fight for the nomination was a conflict between the isolationists, represented by Senator Robert Taft of OH, and the more liberal internationalists, who backed World War II General Dwight D. Eisenhower, then president of Columbia University. Eisenhower won the nomination. Richard M. Nixon, an anticommunist senator from CA, was the vice-presidential candidate.

In 1956, despite suffering a heart attack and abdominal surgery during his first term, President Dwight D. Eisenhower was nominated by the Republicans for a 2nd term without opposition. Although Richard M. Nixon had been a controversial vice president and many Republicans felt he was a liability, he was also re-nominated. For the 2nd time. The Democrats chose former governor Adlai E. Stevenson of IL; his running mate was Estes Kefauver of TN.

Television allowed Eisenhower to reach people across the country without enduring the strain of repeated coast-to-coast travel, making a national campaign more feasible.
