The 1992 United States presidential election in Indiana took place on November 3, 1992, throughout all 50 states and D.C., which was part of the 1992 United States presidential election. Voters chose 12 representatives, or electors to the Electoral College, who voted for President and Vice President.

Indiana was won by President George H.W. Bush (R-TX). The presidential contest in Indiana was not a surprise, with Bush winning 42.91% to 36.79% over Governor Bill Clinton (D).[1] Still, the margin of victory was lesser than in earlier elections; Clinton won in every state bordering Indiana, and except for the Midwest Bush finished first in no state more northern than Indiana. Billionaire Businessman Ross Perot (I-TX) finished in third with a significant 19.77% of the popular vote in Indiana.[2] Indiana would continue to vote Republican in presidential elections until 2008, in which Barack Obama won by a close margin, becoming the first Democrat to carry the state since 1964.
