United States presidential election in Arizona, 1992
|Elections in Arizona|
The 1992 United States presidential election in Arizona took place on November 3, 1992, as part of the 1992 United States presidential election. Voters chose eight representatives, or electors to the Electoral College, who voted for President and Vice President.
Arizona was won by incumbent President George H.W. Bush (R-Texas) with 38.47% of the popular vote over Governor Bill Clinton (D-Arkansas) with 36.52%. Businessman Ross Perot (I-Texas) finished in third with 23.79% of the popular vote. Clinton ultimately won the national vote, defeating incumbent President Bush. Bush very narrowly won in Arizona by a margin of 1.95%, and Clinton went on to win the state in the 1996 election narrowly over Bob Dole.
In achieving the best performance by a Democrat in Arizona since Lyndon Johnson’s landslide in 1964 – when Goldwater held the state by five thousand votes due to a “favourite son” vote in the Phoenix metropolitan area – Clinton broke some notable county droughts. He placed Cochise County in the Democratic camp for the first time since 1964 and last to date, Pima County and Santa Cruz County also voted Democratic for the first time since 1964, whilst Flagstaff’s Coconino County voted Democratic for the first time since Harry S. Truman carried it in 1948.
