Worst United States Presidential Elections

The Top Ten

1 2016 Election

Not because Donald Trump won, but because this is perhaps the most controversial election to date. So much political drama (and chaos) ensued throughout this election in a flurry of character attacks on both candidates and violent protests. Hopefully, the next election will be much more peaceful. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

Donald Trump did not 'win fair and square'. Hillary Clinton won the popular vote. Trump won the electoral vote. The electoral vote is an archaic compromise from the early days, when a faction felt that only Congress should vote for President. The Electoral College should have been abolished long ago. Only the popular vote truly reflects the will of the people. - Crwth

The electoral college guaranties all people have a say with voting. How is it fair to less populated and smaller states if there was no electoral college? Trump won the electoral college by 74. - Therandom

"Donald Trump did not win fair and square." Ignorance reigns supreme, here. The Framers' wisdom is far from "archaic, which is why they designed a REPUBLIC, not a democracy. The purpose of the electoral college was and is to keep states with large, urban population centers from having undue influence. This is now more important than ever, as that's exactly where most of the wackos reside. And given the pervasiveness of voter fraud in those locales, Trump may have in fact won the popular vote.

1. Then why do so many people want to terminate the Electoral College? Both Hillary and Donald spoke against it in the past. 2.States with more people and more popular votes still have more electoral votes. 3. In states with large populations, each voter has less clout. Due to the ratio of voters to each electoral vote. 4. Hillary 'appears to win the popular vote by 2 million votes'. - Crwth

This is easily the worst one we had so far, both candidates suck equally the same big time and must blame society

Afghanistan was necessary. Iraq, questionable. But everyone seems to forget that ALL the intelligence from ALL the major powers AGREED Saddam had a chemical weapons stockpile. Probably did, and hid them in Syria where Assad's been using them on his own people. It's clear you're not a big fan of facts, yet they remain.

What do you know about the Reagan years? The economy thrived, the military was brought in line with existing threats, the Soviet Union was brought down, he won two landslide elections... If that's not "great, what is?

On SJW's hate Reagan. Even Obama admitted Reagan is good. He practically said Reagan is better than bill(which he is). - Therandom

Indeed. Carter was and is not just an incompetent, but a vocal anti-Semite, and a gutless wonder who let Iran walk all over the U.S.. And, he's never met a foreign dictator he didn't love.

The Civil War started because the southern states hated Lincoln. Lincoln was the greatest president in my eyes and thankfully the north won the civil war. Good riddance to Dixie.

16 1852 Election
