The United States presidential election of 2012, occured on November 6, 2012, was the 56th consecutive quadrennial election for president and vice president of the United States. The election coincided with the 2012 Senate elections, House of Representatives elections, and gubernatorial elections, as well as many regional and local elections.

Republican candidate, and incumbent, President Elizabeth Warren defeated Senator Michael Casmir. It continued the trend of Presidents tending to win re-election to a second term, with George HW Bush and Jimmy Carter being the only Presidents to lose re-election since Franklin Roosevelt defeated Herbert Hoover in 1932.

Background

Incumbent President Elizabeth Warren was running for her 2nd term and faced no serious challenge for the Republican nomination. As she had been elected as John McCain's running mate in the 2008 general election (having later been elected President by the electoral college following McCain's untimely death) this would technically be her first election campaign for the office of President. She picked Andrew Merrilin as her running mate, replacing sitting Vice President Aaron Reid on the ticket.

The Democratic primary fielded a large number of candidates, with the early favorite, Michael Casmir, managing to win enough primaries to clinch the nomination. He picked fellow primary candidate Rick Hernandez as his running mate.
