  • The 1792 United States general election elected the members of the 3rd United States Congress. Congress was broadly divided between a faction supporting the policies of George Washington's administration and a faction opposed to those policies, although the Federalist Party and the Democratic-Republican Party were starting to emerge as distinct political parties in the First Party System. In this election, the Pro-Administration faction maintained control of the Senate, but lost a majority in the House.In the Presidential election, incumbent President George Washington was re-elected without any major opposition. Washington had considered retirement, but was convinced to seek re-election for the purpose of national unity. Though Washington went unchallenged, Democratic-Republican Governor George Clinton of New York sought to unseat John Adams as vice president. However, Adams fended off Clinton, and finished with the second most electoral votes, thus earning re-election as vice president.In the House, 37 seats were added following the 1790 census. The anti-Administration faction picked up several seats, narrowly taking the majority from the pro-Administration faction. However, Frederick Muhlenberg, who leaned closer to the pro-administration faction, was elected Speaker of the House.In the Senate, the anti-Administration faction picked up one seat, but the pro-Administration faction maintained a small majority.
