Ron Paul (L-TX)/??? (L-??) 9,357,804 7.9% / 0 electoral votes

California was raaaaazor-thin.  Like 2,000 votes thin. Sad

1988



Senator Ted Kennedy (D-MA)/Senator Al Gore (D-TN) - 323 electoral votes and 60,319,192 (50.4%) popular votes
Vice President George H. W. Bush (R-TX)/Senator Dan Quayle (R-IN) - 215 electoral votes and 53,991,416 (45.1%) popular votes
Others (Paul, Fulani) - 5,455,061 (4.6%) popular votes

President-elect Kennedy pulled off a fairly easy win on election night after the election looked to be extremely close on election day, with the Senator ahead by just 0.3% in the polls, but still far behind Vice President Bush in projections for the electoral college.

Wow... you win as Kennedy against HW Bush....and I can't win against Pat f**in Robertson?? Tongue

1976 (as Ford):




Gerald R. Ford (R-MI)/Ronald W. Reagan (R-CA) 49.6% / 325 electoral votes
James E. Carter (D-GA)/Birch E. Bayh (D-IN) 50.4% / 213 electoral votes

Carter was destroying me up until the last two weeks, then it was almost as if he just stopped campaigning.  Bayh moved around, but Carter stayed put in Nebraska of all places.  He tanked, but hey, at least he won the popular vote.
