In American elections, the popular vote is the amount of ballots cast for a candidate by the voters. In most elections in America, the candidate that wins the popular vote wins the election. However, in Presidential Elections, one must win a majority of electoral votes to be declared the winner. The justification for this has often been questioned, especially after the 1824, 1876, 1888, and 2000 elections, when the popular vote winner lost the election.
