The 2012 United States presidential election in Guam was held on November 6, 2012, as part of the 2012 General Election in which all 50 states plus The District of Columbia participate.

Despite the fact that Guam lacks representation in the Electoral College, the island territory has conducted a straw poll for the office of President since 1980, when it picked then-incumbent President Jimmy Carter over Ronald Reagan. In every poll conducted from 1984 to 2012, the results accurately predicted the winner of the election on the mainland.

Incumbent President Barack Obama won the preference vote handily, receiving over 70% of the vote.[1]
