In 1987, Michael Stanley Dukakis was a Governor of Massachusetts. The state was doing really well, unemployment was down and the economy of Massachusetts was doing better than most states in the union. He decided to bank on his success in Massachusetts and run against George Bush. The focus of his campaign was the "Massachusetts Miracle."
Mike Dukakis didn't handle the national stage to well. He wasn't aggressive in responding to political attacks by George Bush. There was an issue with his views of the military, including pictures of him wearing a helmet in a tank. He lost the election by wide margin, winning only 9 states.
