    Actually there are five Presidents who never won a nationwide election -

    John Tyler
    Millard Fillmore
    Andrew Johnson
    Chester Arthur
    Gerald Ford

    There are also two "minority presidents" who won the electoral vote but not the popular vote:

    John Quincy Adams
    Rutherford B. Hayes

    And then there's George W. Bush, who won neither the electoral vote nor the popular vote.

    There were several people who didn't win the popular vote, most recently George W. Bush. George Washington was never elected and actually gave up power so he wouldn't be like a king

    G.W Bush is the one i remember. He did not win the election on Electoral or the Popular vote, but still served as president. And they say Obama is corrupt. lol

    G.W. Bush would be the 3rd Minority as he didn't win the popular vote in 2000 against Gore but did have the electoral.

    Actually Bush didn't win the electoral vote, either, since it was only the unconstitutional interference in the Florida recount which prevented Al Gore from receiving the Electoral Votes to which he was entitled.

    Aha...sounds bout right from my own opinions on it. Though I'm sure some would disagree and argue it. But I agree.

    Whether you like it or not, Bush won the 2000 election. Tough sh*t.

    Yes he "won" in the sense that he became President. It was America that lost. Thank God we came to our senses in 2008.

    I want to piggyback on your post in response to the puke progressive that blocked me.
    He is a cowardly disgrace to our country and has no right displaying Lincoln as an avatar, as the man is a disgraceful cowardly paltroon who takes cheap shots and blocks people. Much like succer punching a guy and then running in the house and locking the door. proud progressive eptitomizes everything wrong in the nation with his terrorist loving mentality.

    That's funny. Because every credible count of the votes in Florida came out with Bush winning.
    Even after gore conceded.
    Good thing too. Gore would have apologized to the terrorists for the World Trade Center getting in the way of the hijacked planes.

    No, actually every study of the full recount that the Supreme Court prevented (so much for "one man one vote", right?) showed a solid victory for Gore. The only studies that tried to paint a Bush win were those that excluded thousands of validly cast votes.

    Where those "valid" votes from the ones who punched two times for President because they were too stupid to understand a ballot?

    You would have considered any vote for Bush as a vote for gore merely because the voters were "confused about the ballot".
    The many studies that have been done have all shown Bush as the winner. Even without the questionable vote that you call valid.

    Keep in mind your interacting with a person (proud progressive), who is terrorist friendly and would condone Al Gore appoligizing for the Trade Centers getting in the way of the hijacked planes.

    Give him credit. He hasn't blocked me for disagreeing with him, yet.
    That puts him well above the mindless prog drones that infest this site.

    Just so you know, the moron above you is a supporter of terrorists and torturers who celebrates in the streets when innocent children are murdered, and who believes that every dead American soldier is a traitor. In all the time I've been on the site he's only the second person whose behavior is so disgusting that blocking was necessary. You and I disagree on a lot, but you've never shown such utter disrespect for this country that you would celebrate the death of innocents and spit on your own country's flag.

    What he says below is pure garbage, and the coward blocks instead of talking like a man. He is spewing lies and filth, and has to block me cause he isnt man enough to confront me. Coward, lying, scumbag.
