The presidential contest in Indiana was not a surprise, with Bush winning 42.91% to 36.79% over Governor Bill Clinton ((D) by a big margin of 6.12%.[1] Still, the margin of victory was lesser than in earlier elections; Clinton won every state bordering Indiana, and except for the Midwest Bush finished first in no state more northern than Indiana.
