In 1992, President George Bush of the Republican Party defeats Democratic challenger William J. Clinton to earn a second term as President of the United States. The following timeline explores what changes would have occurred as a result.
Point of Divergence
- First POD: The Federal Reserve decides not to pursue a restrictive monetary policy in 1989 and 1990. The early 90s economy, while not as robust and strong as the previous decade, is relatively neutral and does not enter a mild recession.
- Second POD: On July 16, 1992, Ross Perot drops out of the race and does not reenter. As a result, the race is narrowed to a competition between Arkansas Democrat Bill Clinton and incumbent President George Bush. Bush goes on to score victories in Colorado, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Ohio, Montana, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Jersey, Tennessee, and Wisconsin.
