The United States presidential election in Maryland, 1972 was held on November 7, 1972. Both the Democratic and Republican (Sargent Shriver and Spiro Agnew, respectively) Vice Presidential nominees were from Maryland.

Incumbent President Richard Nixon of California and Vice President Agnew of Maryland won the state, winning 61.26 percent of the vote to George McGovern and Shriver's 37.36 percent. Nixon won every county-equivalent in the state except Baltimore City. He won over 77 percent of the vote in Carroll County, and over 70 percent in nine counties overall. This is the last time Prince George's County has voted Republican in a presidential election,[1] and the last of only six occasions[a] since the emergence of the Republican Party that Maryland has voted more Republican than the nation as a whole.[2]

Of his three presidential campaigns, this is the only time in which Nixon carried the home state of his running mate. Nixon failed to carry Maryland in 1968 and in 1960 did not carry Massachusetts the home state of his then running mate Henry Cabot Lodge Jr.
