Constitution Party (United States 1952)

For the contemporary third party formed in the 1990s, see Constitution Party (United States).

The Constitution Party was a conservative third party in the United States, founded in 1952. For the 1952 presidential election, they nominated Douglas MacArthur for President and Harry F. Byrd for Vice-President, without permission from either candidate. The ticket won 17,205 votes (0.03%).[1]

In 1960, the Texas-based Constitution Party nominated retired Marine Corps Brigadier General Merritt B. Curtis for President and Curtis B. Dall for Vice-President.[2]
