1824--Jackson/Adams/Clay cluster of an election, where Jackson won a plurality and it got thrown to the House which elected Adams.

1876--Tilden won both the popular vote and the Electoral College but Hayes stole the election by bringing in his own set of votes from three states.

1888--Cleveland won the popular vote but Harrison won the election.

2000--Gore won the popular vote but Bush won the election.

the 24 elections and 76 elections don't count in this discussion, because we are talking specifically of the disparity between the electoral college and the electorate, not having it thrown into the house nor fiddling with the college.

But thanks for the info..it is interesting.
