United States elections, 1964

The 1964 United States general election was held on November 3. Democratic incumbent Lyndon Johnson was elected to serve his first full term as President of the United States, defeating Republican nominee Barry Goldwater. The presidential election coincided with U.S. Senate, U.S. House, and gubernatorial elections in several states.[1]

Democrats made substantial gains in Congress. They picked up 37 seats in the House and 2 seats in the Senate, thereby capturing supermajorities in both chambers.
