The outcome of the very close election of 1824 surprised political leaders. The winner in the all-important Electoral College was Andrew Jackson, the hero of the War of 1812, with ninety-nine votes. He was followed by John Q. Adams who secured eighty-four votes. William Crawford trailed well behind with just forty-one votes. Although Jackson seemed to have won a narrow victory, receiving 43 percent of the popular vote versus just 30 percent for Adams, he would not be seated as the country 's sixth president.
Al Gore received more votes than George Bush. – True Based on the election updates, establishing later in two thousand, although it eliminated steps and measures to resolve the discrepancy that Al Gore received Five hundred and fourth thousand > George Bush, however by receiving <votes than Al Gore logically Al Gore should have held the Presidency. Therefore, Al Gore was elected President of the United States.
He ran for reelection and was going against his personal enemy Henry Clay, who was representing the Whig Party. This party strongly supported the Second Bank and so Clay urged Biddle to apply for a new charter. Even though this passed both houses without any trouble, Jackson vetoed it. Jackson soon defeated Clay in the election and began to make his own changes to the bank. He ordered his treasury secretaries to remove federal deposits from the bank and to place them in 23 state banks so that he could destroy the Second Bank.
Was president Franklin Roosevelt’s Court Packing scheme a plan that consisted of a wish to help end America’s Great Depression or was it a hunger for dictatorial power? Franklin Roosevelt based his election campaign on a New Deal, a series of programs he claimed would help end the Great Depression. While Roosevelt won the election, many of his New Deal bills would not win the approval of the United States Supreme Court. Franklin Roosevelt believed the problem lied not in his bills but in the Supreme Court. He believed the four Conservatives Justices would convince Justice Owen Roberts, who was somewhat neutral, to vote against Roosevelt’s bills.
When there is a new president we have to vote and there is a lot of that can do it. Then people from the states that can do vote and people he can 't they do not vote. Then the people who are running for it they been trying to convince people to vote for them on Super Tuesday. That is where they vote for them and try to win before November comes around. Ther is so not 2 democrats left to for running for president and there is 5 republican left to run for president.
In the Republican Party I believe that the next person to drop out is John Kasich. The next person that I think is going to drop out is Ted Cruz. That would leave Hillary Clinton in the Democratic Party and Donald Trump in the Republican Party. In the Republican Party there is currently three people running for President because Marco Rubio has dropped out of the election.
On November 6, 2012, Barack Obama was re-elected to serve a second term as the President of the United States. Obama won the popular vote by 65,899,660 and had 332 electoral votes. Obama had to beat history to become 2 term president. No president since the great depression had won reelection with unemployment above 7.2 percent. Even though Obama face high unemployment and slow economic growth he still managed to pull out another victory over his challenger, Mitt Romney.
This week’s lesson gave me more clarity on the-the Electoral College. It was confusing at first to hear that the popular vote does not win an election. Bush lost the popular votes, but won the electoral vote in 2000, cleared by the Supreme Court (POLS201). I think it is better for the candidate to worry about the crucial electoral votes than the popular votes.
Presidential Election Being liked by the whole nation and having more total votes than any one else running doesn’t necessarily mean you will become president. You could be winning the American vote but not win the presidential election. Creating a chance for the loser in total votes to actually win the election. It is not impossible to not win the peoples vote but win the election. In fact, 4 out of the last 56 elections have had the outcome go towards the loser in votes but just won the right electoral votes.
How he would do anything to keep the people safe, and take care of them. Show the people what a good leader looks like. Have you ever heard or seen Julius Caesar say something so strong and caring like that? No, because he’s dangerous. He can’t even do anything himself, if he becomes crowned, he’s going to be a useless leader for the Roman people.
President Theodore Roosevelt opened the doors of opportunity for America when he began the progressive era during his presidency. Starting in 1890 the progressive era was a time in U.S. history that focused on utilizing the government to assist society with their struggles such as poverty, racism, work conditions, and much more. Roosevelt was the first of three progressive presidents but was definitely not the most progressive of them. Woodrow Wilson, the most progressive president, was ironically the one to put an unintentional end to the progressive era but made huge accomplishments as well as some failures during his presidency leading him to become one of the best presidents that the U.S. has seen.
Esmé Hassell-Thean Mr. Blenner AP United States History 12th of March 2016 The controversial politics of Theodore Roosevelt. Theodore Roosevelt is one of America’s most famous Presidents and today his legacy lives on, admired by both liberals and conservatives alike. However, in his day Roosevelt would have been considered left wing and the conservatives of the early 1900s would have frowned upon his policies.
Theodore Roosevelt’s big stick diplomacy is mainly remembered from a phrase he mentioned on September 2, 1901, during his speech at Minnesota State Fair. The phrase is remembered as “speak softly, and carry a big stick; you will go far” and is still famous as of today. The big stick diplomacy is and was a major part of Roosevelt’s relation and peace policy. His main point in the policy was the idea to strive for peace while also keeping other nations aware of their military power. Roosevelt did agree to the arbitration of questions not having anything to do with national honor or vital interests whereas Taft was all for it.
What if the Cold War never happened. What if all of God’s creations created equal were treated equally. What if all citizens were provided healthcare and financial protection. What if both men and women were given equal pay and equal rights. What if Henry Agard Wallace succeeded Franklin Delano Roosevelt to becoming the 33rd president of America .
I think Theodore Roosevelt did not set the country on an unsustainable path to ruin. It’s extremely hard to predict the future on something like what a country will turn into. Theodore Roosevelt probably didn't think about the future consequences of his decisions. I don’t blame him for that he probably thought he was doing the right thing. We can’t blame someone who’s been dead for 97 for the current economic problems.
