Don't read this if you have a problem with high blood pressure.

Since Bill Clinton beat Bush the Elder by winning the popular vote and the electoral votes in 1992, the Democratic presidentisl candidates have won the popular vote in every subsequent election except the one in 2004---and that "defeat" still leaves a very bad taste in my mouth.

Arguably, the Republicans should have occupied the White House for just 4 of those 28 years, not 12.

And, during those 12 years, five SCOTUS Justices were appointed. Clearly, the current SCOTUS represents a minority of Americans.

3. Thinking that 2004 is the correct answer, isn't it?

5. That's what I was thinking.

I think that Bush beat Kerry, although it was very close.

6. 1996

Clinton did not win a majority of the popular vote, but his popular margin of 8.5 percentage points remains largest popular vote margin won by either party since the 1984 presidential election.
