George W. Bush was elected president without winning popular vote.
because they want to if they want the president to be elected they have to vote
The US president it elected by an indirect process. Popular vote elects people known as electors who are pledged to vote for one particular candidate. The electors then vote for the president.
People vote for the president. If he/she (when there is a she) gets the most votes, they are elected president. Then they have to swore in and all that stuff.
George W. Bush was the only president elected to two terms with less than 50 percent of the popular vote.
The President is elected by popular vote.
Benjamin Harrison was elected in 1888 even though Grover Cleveland won a majority of the popular vote. Bill Clinton was elected with 43% of the popular vote in 1992, but that was a plurality.
John Q. Adams, Rutherford B. Hayes, Benjamin Harrison, and George W. Bush were elected without winning the popular vote.
None. The election is not based on the popular vote. It is based on the electoral vote. The electors actually cast the vote, so a president without the popular vote can be elected president, such as in the 2000 Election between George Bush and Al Gore.
Electors are elected by popular vote but the president is elected by the electoral college. A president candidate can win the popular vote and still not win if he doesn't win the electoral college.
The Electoral College formally elects the president. The Electoral College is elected based on population of that state and the persons elected cast the vote majority of their state. Although, not all Electoral College representatives cast the majority vote, some cast the vote based on their own opinion. See the last election, Bush and Gore. Al Gore won the popular vote, yet George W. Bush became president because of the Electoral College.
A president is elected by the electoral college, not by the people.
There are four elected president who did not win the popular vote. The fourth and the most recent was President George W. Bush in the election in 2000.
The electoral college elects the president and vice-president of the US. The electors are elected by popular vote and declare in advance how they will vote if they are elected, so the people choose electors who will vote the way they would vote if they were electors.
No, the President is elected by a college consisting of the Bundestag and representatives of the various states.
This is correct. The U.S. President is elected by vote by the Electorate College.
Well, with the elected president comes the vice president.__________________As a footnote, neither the president nor the vice president is nationally elected. The people vote for electors in the presidential election.
The US president is elected if they win the vote of the Electoral College.
Because we took a vote and he won!
It is a group of electors that are elected by the people to cast the vote to elect the president

He is nominated at a party convention and runs for the office. In the general election people vote, but a president is not elected by popular vote but by electors. These people are House members, senate members. It takes 270 electoral votes to win.
The president is chosen by the United States. People vote. Whoever gets the most votes is elected.
Congress cannot appoint the President. The United States President is elected by the people through a public vote. You have to be at least 18 years old to vote.
The people of the United States. We vote for who we want elected and we ultimately decide who is president and vice president.
