This is a 12 slide, highly animated, power point presentations on US Presidential Elections - Election of 1992 & 1996 - Clinton. Each of the presentation slides are editable so you can change it to fit your individual needs.
Although Vice President George Bush faced some opposition in the primaries from Senator Robert Dole of KS in 1988, he won the Republican nomination by acclamation. He chose Senator Dan Quayle of IN as his running mate. The Democrats nominated Michael Dukakis, governor of MA, for president and Senator Lloyd Bentsen of TX for vice president.
In 1991 incumbent President George H. W. Bush’s approval ratings reached 88%, the highest in presidential history up to that point. But by 1992, his ratings had sunk, and Bush became the 4th sitting U.S. president to lose re-election. Bush had alienated much of his conservative base by breaking his 1988 campaign pledge against raising taxes. The economy was also in a recession and Bush's perceived greatest strength, foreign policy, 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 Iraq in the Gulf War.
The 1996 election was the most lavishly funded up to that point. The combined amount spent by the 2 major parties for all federal candidates topped $2 billion, which was 33% more than what was spent in 1992. During this election the Democratic National Committee was accused of accepting donations from Chinese contributors. Non-American citizens are forbidden by law from donating to U.S. politicians, and 17 people were later convicted for the activity.
