This chapter examines the 1976 presidential elections in the U.S. and its impact on the presidency of Gerald Ford and his Republican Party. It suggests that though Gerald Ford lost to his Democratic opponent Jimmy Carter, he succeeded in reviving his party and improving the economy. Unlike his immediate predecessors, Ford left both the economy and his party in better shape than when he took office.

Keywords:   presidential election, U.S, Gerald Ford, Jimmy Carter, Republican Party, economy
