1952 United States presidential election in Kentucky took place on November 4, 1952, as part of the 1952 United States presidential election. Kentucky voters chose ten representatives, or electors, to the  Electoral College, who voted for president and vice president.
Kentucky was won by Adlai Stevenson ( D– Illinois), running with Senator John Sparkman, with 49.91 percent of the popular vote, against Columbia University President Dwight D. Eisenhower ( R– New York), running with Senator Richard Nixon, with 49.84 percent of the popular vote. The race in Kentucky was the closest in the nation, with the candidates separated by a mere 700 votes, or 0.07 percent of the vote,  and in fact was the closest presidential election in any state since  New Hampshire was won by Woodrow Wilson by fifty-six votes in 1916.
