Running a political campaign is all about advertising. It is important for presidents to make sure their names stick in the minds of citizens. That way, when they go to the polls, they remember the campaign slogan, and they associated with the president. As a result, it is not unusual for a president to have a very strong campaign slogan. Even though it is difficult to look back at history and figure out all of the presidential slogans, a lot of them have been inscribed in history textbooks to this day. Therefore, it is helpful to take a look at some of the presidential campaign slogans that have been successful in the past.
The very first memorable campaign slogan was Tippecanoe and Tyler too. That was the campaign slogan of William Henry Harrison, who was elected president in 1840. John Tyler was the running mate of William Henry Harrison. Eventually, John Tyler would have to take over as president of the United States, as William Henry Harrison passed away after only a month in office. William Henry Harrison was considered a war hero at the time. He defeated Tecumseh, served in the War of 1812, and was widely anticipated to be a strong president. Unfortunately, he did not get to leave his mark on the White House, as he passed away shortly after taking office.
Abraham Lincoln is widely considered to be one of the greatest presidents in the history of the United States. He led the country out of the American Civil War, and he had a handful of campaign slogans that he used in 1860 and 1864. For example, many people called him honest all day. He also frequently said that the union must and shall be preserved. It was also said that voting for Abraham Lincoln was like voting for a farm and horses. He was re-elected president in 1864, and he had several similar campaign slogans at that time. For example, many people said that it was important not to Change Horses Midstream. He was also said to run for Union and Constitution.
Franklin Delano Roosevelt was one of the most popular presidents in the history of the United States. He is also the longest-serving president in the history of the United States. He had several popular campaign slogans. For example, when he was first elected in 1932, he said that we are turning the corner. He also said that Happy Days Are Here Again. In 1936, his slogan was Forward with Roosevelt, and Remember Hoover. In 1940, he had a handful of campaign slogans that he used again. For example, there was the slogan Wilkie for the Millionaires, Roosevelt for the Millions. All of these slogans proved popular, as Franklin Roosevelt won in decisive, landslide elections every time that he ran for president.
