Top Ten U.S. Presidential Candidates Who Should Have Been Elected

Which losing candidates do you think should have won the election?

The Top Ten

1 Bernie Sanders (2016) Bernie Sanders (2016) Bernard "Bernie" Sanders is an independent American Senator from Vermont and was a candidate for the Democratic nomination for President of the United States in the 2016 election.

You know we're screwed when we're going from Obama to either Trump or Clinton. I'm legit scared about my financial status after the election. Scratch that. I'm scared for the country as a whole. I prefer Clinton over Trump, but I still feel uneasy. We had one job: vote Sanders. And we blew it.

Bernie Sanders is more honest than Hillary Clinton. He also doesn't say the wrong things at the wrong time, unlike Donald Trump. Yeah, Bernie Sanders should have been nominated, not Hillary Clinton. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

The perfect candidate. Even as someone that is not American and actually dislikes America a bit, I know Bernie Sanders is going to make America even more amazing than it is now. And then they pick the wife of the first black president: Hillary Clinton.

14 Vermin Supreme (2008)
