In 1992 American voters faced a dramatically changing electoral landscape. What had originally promised to be a predictable reelection of a wildly popular incumbent had evolved into an unusual three-way race that challenged much of the conventional wisdom about presidential politics and awakened a frustrated electorate to new levels of participation. On election day, Governor Bill Clinton of Arkansas emerged victorious from a bruising campaign to claim a mandate for economic renewal and to assume the mantle of a new generation of political leadership. The Election of 1992: Reports and Interpretations, the fifth in a series of bestsellers that began in 1976, provides substantial insight to a most eventful and often surprising campaign season. Led by Gerald M. Pomper of the Eagleton Institute of Electoral Politics at Rutgers University, a distinguished group of political scientists make extensive use of survey data from CBS News/New York Times polls to explain just what happened to the once-bright prospects of George Bush, how persistent concerns about the state of the economy shaped the primary and general election contests, and how Ross Perot, even while losing, contributed to significant changes in American politics. Walter Dean Burnham of the University of Texas at Austin provides a historical perspective for understanding Bush's role as an "understudy" president whose lack of respect or talent for the charismatic dimensions of the office undermined his effectiveness and popularity. Ross K. Baker of Rutgers University tracks the primary process to illustrate the effects both of Clinton's remarkable fortitude in facing down the multiple and repeated attacks on his character and of Bush's mistaken tilt toward his party's right wing. F. Christopher Arterton of the Graduate School of Political Management examines each campaign's strategy in designing a central message to the voters and the tactical maneuvering required to spread it through new media channels. Kathleen A. Frankovic of CBS News cites significant polling data to trace how the voters took control of the electoral dialogue, defining issues and setting new ground rules. Gerald M. Pomper of Rutgers University analyzes the electoral results, illuminating the sodal and ideological dimensions of the presidential contest. Marjorie Randon Hershey of Indiana University describes the conflict between incumbent advantage and anti-incumbent fever in reviewing the dynamics of congressional races throughout the country. Wilson Carey McWilliams of Rutgers University sums up the historic meaning of the national election as an exercise in the democratic process that may have changed the face of American politics for generations to come
