There have been 5 Elections where winner lost popular vote
1824: John Quincy Adams.
1876: Rutherford B. Hayes.
1888: Benjamin Harrison.
2000: George W. Bush.
2016: Donald Trump.

The 1824 and 1876 elections were settled by blatant political means. The 1888 election was still before secret ballots, and a blatant vote selling scheme was uncovered in Indiana that gave Benjamin Harris the state. Indiana did not have enough electoral college votes to determine the election, but a similar scheme was suspected in New York City. NY state did have enough electoral college votes to determine the outcome.

The 1888 and 1892 elections had the same two candidates running. Grover Cleveland won in 1884 and 1892. Benjamin Harrison won in 1888.

The results in three critical states are below. Harrison won all three states in 1888 and Cleveland won all three in 1892. They had more than enough EC votes to determine outcome.
Candidate	NY			IN			IL		
1888 1892 1888 1892 1888 1892
G. Cleveland 635,965 654,868 261,013 262,740 348,351 426,281
B. Harrison- 650,338 609,350 263,361 255,615 370,475 399,288


In contrast most people accept the results of 2000 and 2016 as a simple statement about demographics of party support in the 21st century.

Bush and trump are the only ones who
lost it because of illegal votes. Thank
god for the EC.
If you take a risk, you may lose. If you never take a risk, you will always lose.
