The basic idea of this thread is that you answer the Presidential Election trivia question asked by the previous poster.  I'll get it started:

Who was the Progressive Party VP nominee in 1912?

Easy one, Hiram Johnson of California.

Now for my question, in what year did Henry Cabot Lodge jr. loose to Kennedy for a Massachussetts senate seat?

You didn't read it correctly. You were suppose to answer the question above! Bloody Hell.

1952 was the year Henry Cabot Lodge Junior lost to John F. Kennedy.

In 1946, Richard Nixon won California's 12th Congressional District seat, who did he defeat?

1916, 1948, 1968  

Just a note, you can trust that I am being honest.

I have studied Presidential politics since June of 2005. I know all of the political maps from 1932 to present like the back of my own hand.

I have read all sorts of books about the Presidents.

Apparently, you didn't look too closely, Bush lost NY and PA in 2000 and 2004, but he still won.  Also, please remember to ask a question at the end of each post.

Who did Al Gore endorse in 2004?

Reagan endorsed Barry Goldwater, and gave his speech in October.

Who was the first candidate to lose the Popular Vote but win the election?  Also, Gore endorsed Dean, not Kerry.

Andrew Jackson

No, Jackson lost the election to Adams.  The answer was Rutherford Hayes.  Remember to ask a question after answering the previous one.

Who was the first women to receive and electoral vote, and for what party?

The idea of parodying the preceding Atlasian's postings is laughable, of course, but not for reasons one might expect.

George Wallace in 1968.

-----

During the presidential history of the 1990s and early 21st century, we saw a situation in which an incumbent was defeated for re-election, his successor serving two full terms in office, and then the original incumbent's son winning election in an open race and going on to serve two terms.

This same situation has happened before in a state-level race, involving a person who would later become president.  When and where was it, and who were the people involved?

A guess, but my response is Teddy Roosevelt.

My question is, who was the first "king" to become President of the United States?




You ignored my answer, which was the correct one.  Pay attention.

It was Andrew Johnson. Now answer the following question, which was posted before...

If that is the answer for my question, then it is incorrect.
