He won more electoral votes (71 to 68) than Thomas Jefferson in the election to succeed George Washington, for whom Adams served as Vice President from 1789 to 1797. Though opposed by many within his own Federalist party, Adams seemed the "lesser evil" and preferable to allowing the Democratic-Republicans and Jefferson to win. The lack of party unity meant that Adams served only one term, from 1797 to 1801.
