ABSTRACT
The article analyzes the results of the November 1952 presidential election, which was won by a large margin by Republican candidate Dwight Eisenhower. The victory of the Republicans meant that industrial workers turned to Eisenhower after being wooed by the Democrats, that Southerners were weary of bureaucracy and that young people were craving for change. The article also discusses Eisenhower's adoption by the Republicans, clear mandate from voters and challenges as president.
