The 1996 United States presidential election in Texas took place on November 5, 1996. All fifty states and the District of Columbia, were part of the 1996 United States presidential election. Texas voters chose thirty-two electors to the Electoral College, which selected the president and vice president.

Texas was won by Kansas Senator Bob Dole, who was running against incumbent United States President Bill Clinton of Arkansas. Clinton ran a second time with incumbent Vice President Al Gore as his running mate and Dole ran with former New York Congressman Jack Kemp.[1] Texas provided both two of the nation‘s three most Republican counties – High Plains Ochiltree in its north and Glasscock in the central plains – and its most Democratic county in rock-ribbed Tejano Starr County at the opposite end of the state.[2]

Texas weighed in for this election as 13 percentage points more Republican than the national average.

Partisan background[edit]

The presidential election of 1996 was a very multi-partisan election for Texas, with more than 7% of the electorate voting for third-party candidates.

In his second bid for the presidency, Ross Perot led the newly reformed Reform Party to gain over 6% of the votes in his home state of Texas, and to pull in support nationally as the most popular third-party candidate to run for United States presidency in recent times.

As of the 2016 presidential election, this is the last time a Democratic presidential candidate won the following counties: Hudspeth, Pecos, Terrell, Ward, Swisher, Hall, Cottle, Hardeman, Foard, Baylor, Knox, Haskell, Stonewall, Kent, Dickens, Crosby, Jones, Fisher, Nolan, Mitchell, Menard, Comanche, Palo Pinto, Bastrop, Caldwell, Nueces, San Patricio, Refugio, Bee, Karnes, Atascosa, Burleson, Milam, Falls, Limestone, Navarro, Waller, Grimes, Galveston, Trinity, Orange, Jasper, Tyler, Sabine, San Augustine, Shelby, Panola, Harrison, Marion, Cass, Bowie, Camp, Titus, Red River, Rains, Hopkins, Delta, and Fannin.[3]
