Summary

The election was held on November 8, 1904.


The Incumbent president, Theodore Roosevelt, faced an early primary challenge from Mark Hanna, but this did not last long; Hanna died in 1904. Roosevelt was easily nominated.


The Democrats nominated Alton B. Parker. Unlike the 1896 election, the Democrats decided to advocate the gold standard this time, but Parker, winning only the southern states, was still not able to win the general election. Roosevelt won in a relative landslide.
