For the 1988 United States presidential election, incumbent Vice President, George H.W. Bush served as the Republican nominee in the race. Choosing Senator Dan Quayle of Indiana as his running mate, Bush faced off against the Democrats nominee, Governor Michael Dukakis of Massachusetts. Capitalizing on Reagan's popularity as well as benefiting from a Dukakis's campaign that suffered many miscues, Bush would go on to win in a landslide victory. Securing 426 electoral votes versus Dukakis's 111, no candidate since has managed to equal or surpass Bush's number of electoral votes nor his popular vote percentage of 53.4%
