United States presidential election, 1956
President Eisenhower had served faithfully during his four years in office and was popular for reelection. Although he had heart problems, he seemed to be healthy enough for another term. He was decisively nominated by the Republican party along with his running mate, Richard Nixon. The Democrats renominated Adlai E. Stevenson to run again against Eisenhower. The election was not a tense battle. Eisenhower easily won the election.
