Five presidents were elected after losing the popular vote.

  • John Quincy Adams in 1824 (Andrew Jackson won the popular vote. Jackson also led in electoral vote but did not get the required majority so the House of Representatives decided the election.)
  • Rutherford Hayes in 1876 (Samuel Tilden won the popular vote)
  • Benjamin Harrison in 1888 ( incumbent president Grover Cleveland won the popular vote)
  • George W. Bush in 2000 ( Al Gore won the popular vote.)
  • Donald Trump in 2016 (Hilary Clinton won the popular vote).

US presidents are never elected by popular vote. Popular vote in each state and DC elects the people called electors, who then elect the president. Most presidents have won the popular vote well as the electoral vote - only J. Q. Adams in 1824, Hayes in 1876, Ben. Harrison in 1888 and George W. Bush lost in the national popular vote total.

Yes- this can happen and has happened- what counts is the electoral vote.1824- Andrew Jackson lead in popular vote and electoral vote- did not get a majority-- House elected John Quincy Adams as president.1876- Samuel Tilden won popular vote, Rutherford Hayes won the electoral vote and the election .1888- Grover Cleveland won popular vote, lost election to Benjamin Harrison.2000- Al Gore won the popular vote - lost to George W. Bush.

Yes, popular vote does not directly determine the president. In fact, on three occasions, the leader in popular vote lost the election.

Rutherford B. Hayes lost the popular vote to Samuel Tilden but won the electoral vote and became president. There was a huge controversy about the credentials of some of the electors.

George W. Bush won in 2000 and lost the popular vote. He was re-elected in 2004 but when he was re-elected he won the popular votes as well as the electoral vote. (The other three Presidents who lost the popular vote, John Quincy Adams, Rutherford Hayes and Benjamin Harrison , were not re-elected .)

But still lost the election. Your welcome.

No US president was elected unanimously by popular vote. The only president elected unanimously by the electoral college was George Washington (There was no popular vote in this election).

Yes it happened in the 2000 election, president gore won the popular vote by a slim margin, but lost to Bush because he won the electoral college.

George Bush won the Electoral College, but lost the popular vote.

No. Not really. He lost the popular vote the year he was elected, 1888, and lost his try for re-election in 1892. He was rather stiff and formal as a person.

Popular votes is not directly used to elect the President. However, the winner also won the popular vote in every election except 1824 (Adams won; Jackson led in popular vote),1876 (Hayes won; Tilden led in popular vote), 1888(Harrison won; Cleveland led in popular vote) and 2000(Bush won; Gore won the popular vote.)/
