The 1972 United States presidential election in Arkansas took place on November 7, 1972, as part of the 1972 United States presidential election. Arkansas voters chose six[2] representatives, or electors, to the Electoral College, who voted for president and vice president.

Arkansas was won by incumbent President Richard Nixon (RCalifornia), with 68.82% of the popular vote, against George McGovern (DSouth Dakota), with 30.71% of the popular vote.[3][4] John G. Schmitz was the only other candidate on the ballot, and, as the candidate for the American Independent Party, he received just over three thousand votes.

In a state that would reflect McGovern's national results,[5][6] the Democratic nominee did not win a single county in Arkansas. This is also the best showing in the state by a Republican presidential candidate. As of the 2016 presidential election, this is the last election in which Phillips County, Jefferson County, Lee County, Chicot County, and Desha County voted for the Republican candidate.[7]

Republican Ulysses S. Grant first won Arkansas in 1868.[8]
