President Truman had decided not to run for the Presidency again. General Eisenhower was popular as a candidate for which the Republicans were desperate. He got nominated easily on the Republican party ticket,[1] while Adlai Stevenson won the Democratic nomination. The Republicans who had not won a presidential election since 1928 decisively won the 1952 election.[2]
