Hillary Clinton lost the presidency in 2016 even though more people voted for her than Donald Trump. Mrs. Clinton is not the first person to lose the presidency even though she had more votes than her opponent.
In 1824 Andrew Jackson lost to John Quincy Adams. It worked out in the end, in 1828 Andrew Jackson, who created the Democratic Party we still have today, ran again and beat John Quincy Adams.
In 1888 Grover Cleveland lost to Benjamin Harrison. Cleveland, seeking a second term as president, became unpopular with Civil War veterans, farmers, and industrialists yet, he still won the popular vote by a very narrow margin.
In 2000 Al Gore lost to George W. Bush. Bush is the son of George Bush, who was also president. Like our current election, a recount occurred.
Will Hillary Clinton remain the fifth person to lose the presidency even though she had the popular vote? What do you think?
