List of United States National Republican/Whig Party presidential tickets | Wikipedia audio article


This is a list of the candidates for the offices
of President of the United States and Vice President of the United States of the defunct
National Republican/Whig Party of the United States, which changed its name during the
1830s.==(1828 to 1860)=====As the National Republican Party======As the Whig Party======1844======1848======1852======1856===
The collapse of the Whigs after 1852 left political chaos. Even though the party disintegrated, it continued
to win some elections under its own banner, as the “Opposition Party”, or as the American
Party. The American, or “Know-Nothing” Party, formed
from various prohibitionist and nativist movements, based originally on the secret Know-Nothing
lodges. It was a moralistic party that appealed to
the middle class fear of corruption, which it identified with Catholics, especially the
recent Irish immigrants who seemed to bring crime, corruption, poverty and bossism as
soon as they arrived. Remnants of the Whig party met once more in
convention in 1856, and nominated the Know Nothing’s nominees in order to provide a “centerist”
pro-slavery alternative to James Buchanan.===As the Constitutional Union party===
The Republican Party was more driven, in terms of ideology and talent; it surpassed the hapless
Whig/American Party coalition in 1856. By 1858 the Republicans controlled majorities
in every Northern state, and hence controlled the electoral votes for president in 1860. The tattered remnants of the Coalition’s southern
wing, under the name, “Constitutional Union Party”, ran a ticket in order to prevent secession. They were joined by a few anti-secessionist
Southern Democrats. Nearly all of the Northern wing had already
joined the Republicans; the only free states where the Constitutional Union Party garnered
more than 3% were Massachusetts and California.==See also==
