In 1992, Bill Clinton ran for president against incumbent president George Bush. President Bush faced opposition from within the Republican party due to breaking his pledge to not raise taxes during his first term. Democratic candidate Bill Clinton gained popularity until his campaign was threatened by the evidence of his twelve-year marital affair. With both candidates facing problems during their campaigns, the opportunity arose for a third-party candidate to gain momentum. Ross Perot secured almost nineteen percent of the vote, while Bush received about thirty-seven percent of the vote. Bill Clinton won with forty-three percent of the vote, and his presidency ended a twelve-year stint of republican presidents.
