The Popular Vote…Loses

October 10, 2017 by

“The Popular Vote…Loses” is a new exhibit on the end shelves of the Notarianni Political Collection, 4th floor, Dayton Memorial Library.

Five presidential candidates have won the popular vote of the people, and yet lost the election: Andrew Jackson, 1824; Samuel Tilden, 1876; Grover Cleveland, 1888; Al Gore, 2000; and Hillary Clinton, 2016. They lost the election because they got fewer votes in the Electoral College. This exhibit displays some of the campaign items of the losers, as well as those of their victorious opponents.
