Richard Nixon was sworn in as president on January 20, 1969. Nixon later became the first — and so far the only — president to resign from office. Nixon defeated Democratic nominee and incumbent Vice President Hubert Humphrey on November 5, 1968, garnering 43.4% of the vote and 301 electoral votes to Humphrey's 42.7% and 191 electoral votes. George Wallace, a proponent of segregation, got 13.5% of the vote and 46 electoral votes. President Lyndon Johnson announced in spring 1968 that he would not seek the nomination for the presidency that year — a decision prompted by growing backlash to the war.
