Elected President

Bill Clinton
Democratic

Kansas was won by incumbent President George H.W. Bush (R-Texas) with 38.88% of the popular vote over Governor Bill Clinton (D-Arkansas) with 33.74%. Businessman Ross Perot (I-Texas) finished in third, with 26.99% of the popular vote. Kansas was surprisingly close, likely because Ross Perot split the vote. Had Clinton won in Kansas, it would have been a major upset victory.[1] Clinton ultimately won the national vote, defeating incumbent President Bush and Perot.[2] As of the 2016 presidential election, this is the last election in which Ellis County, Cherokee County, Leavenworth County, Shawnee County, Labette County, and Miami County voted for a Democratic presidential candidate,[3] as well as the last election in which Wabaunsee County, Anderson County, Jefferson County, and Morris County did not support the Republican candidate.[3]

With 29.99% of the popular vote, Kansas would prove to be Perot's fifth strongest state after Maine, Alaska, Utah and Idaho[4].
