The 1952 United States presidential election in New Mexico took place on November 4, 1952. All 48 States were part of the United States presidential election. New Mexico voters chose four electors to represent them in the Electoral College, which voted for President and Vice President.

New Mexico was won by World War II hero and supreme allied commander Dwight D. Eisenhower by a wide 11 point margin. Running against Eisenhower was Governor of Illinois Adlai Stevenson, who largely only carried the American South during his two gambits for the presidency.[1] This was the 10th consecutive U.S. Presidential Election which New Mexico participated in.
