The 1992 United States presidential election in Louisiana took place on November 7, 1992, as part of the 1992 United States presidential election. Voters chose nine representatives, or electors to the Electoral College, who voted for president and vice president.

Louisiana was won by Governor Bill Clinton, a major swing from the statewide results in 1988 when Republican nominee George H.W. Bush carried the state with 54 percent of the vote and with a double-digit margin of victory. Clinton won most of the parishes and congressional districts in the state, dominating the rural areas of the state. The only congressional district Bush won was the first district, which includes two of the most heavily Republican parishes in the state, Jefferson and St. Tammany. Independent Ross Perot gathered 11.81 percent of the vote, a strong showing for a third-party candidate but still his sixth-weakest state. Perot did best in the southwestern Acadian bayou parishes, exceeding 23 percent in Cameron Parish.[1]
