Even though numerically Dole did worse, Bush 1992 has to be the worst performance (ala Hoover's reelection in 1932) in that the electoral realignment that exists today.   

Bush received 10 million votes less than 1988.  Furthermore, Clinton was able to align the coastal states with significant chunks of the South and Midwest--and this defined how the Democrats should run their election campaigns.
