Lyndon B. Johnson

Hawaii was won by incumbent United States President Lyndon B. Johnson of Texas, who was running against Senator Barry Goldwater of Arizona. Johnson ran for a second time with Senator Hubert Humphrey of Minnesota, and Goldwater ran with U.S. Representative William E. Miller of New York.

This would be the first of three times Hawaii was won by a Democratic presidential candidate with over 70% of the vote, the other two times being Barack Obama - who was born in the state - in 2008 and 2012, although by around 7-8 points less than Johnson's victory.

President Lyndon B. Johnson won the State of Hawaii by an absolute sweep-out landslide of 57.52 points. No presidential candidate has ever won a larger percentage of the vote or a larger margin since.
