Did Nixon remain on the republican ticket as elisenhower's running mate or did he step down?
Nixon was Eisenhower's running mate both times that Ike ran.
Fillmore ran for vice-president as the running mate of Zachary Taylor in 1848. His opposition for the office of vice-president were William Butler , running with Lewis Cass, on the Democratic ticket and Charles Adams, running with Martin Van Buren on the Free Soil ticket. In 1856 he ran for president on the American (a.k.a. Know Nothing ) ticket. His opponents were James Buchanan ( Democrat) and John C. Fremont (Republican)
Split ticket voting means that a person votes for either democrat or republican based on the candidate's values. Straight ticket voting means that a person votes for either democrat or republican every single time, no matter what their views are. In 2012, more people began to vote a straight party ticket.
Depends. Some say it is Thomas Jefferson as part of the Democratic-Republicans. Otherwise it would be Lincoln who ran under the "Republican" ticket to be acknowledged as a Republican president. If you mean the first Republican that has the same political ideology as the current Republicans, then that would be Nixon.
Democrat Andrew Johnson was selected as Republican Abraham Lincoln's running mate in 1864 to balance the ticket in the midst of the U.S. Civil War, but Johnson never ran for President (he became President when Lincoln was assassinated). Ronald Reagan had originally been a Democrat, but his switch to the Republican Party was many years before he ran for Governor in 1966. (Reagan had commented that he didn't leave the Democratic Party; they left him.)
Thomas Jefferson was leader of the Democratic-Republican party, organized from the group originally known as the Anti-Federalists, and became the first of four Presidents representing this party. James Madison, James Monroe and John Quincy Adams also served as Democratic-Republican Presidents, although John Quincy Adams ran for a second term (and was defeated) on the National Republican Ticket (aka Anti-Jackson Ticket).
Abraham Lincoln had a two vice presidents. For his first term, his running mate was Hannibal Hamlin, the first Republican Party vice president. He had served as governor of Maine as well as in the Senate and House of Representatives. His second vice president, who became president after his assassination was Andrew Johnson. Johnson was a Democrat running with Lincoln on the National Union ticket.
