Presidential candidate Bill Clinton's campaign had its ups and downs. After surviving accusations of adultery and dodging the draft, the Democratic candidate built up a 20 percent lead on his Republican rival, George Bush. But as D-day approached this dwindled to only 5 percent. On 3 November 1992, 100 million Americans - 54 percent of the total electorate - voted to put an end to 12 years of Republican rule. "The American people have voted to make a new beginning," said the president-elect to a jubilant election night crowd in his home state of Arkansas.
