I thought I saw a comment that said that if they typed Harrison they got one president but not the other but it looks like that comment got removed. I looked into it and in fact if you misspell it as Harison (one R) you get William Henry but not Benjamin.

Level 67
May 3, 2018
I just tested this and it's true. If you type Harison with one R, it will fill in William but not Benjamin. This probably has more to do with the 2% discrepancy between them than people typing first names. If Harison was added as a type-in for Benjamin, I bet that difference would go away.

+11
Level 66
Mar 7, 2017
Actually, Blurr, George Washington really was nonpartisan. It is just that his policies leaned closer to Federalist ideology. So it's right to say that he was a nonpartisan with Federalist leanings. He even intentionally balanced his cabinet just that half or so were Federalists, and half or so were Anti-Federalists. So yes. George Washington was our only independent/nonpartisan president.
+1

John Tyler was disowned by his party and governed against them often, but I don't think he joined Democrats either because he disliked the Andrew Jackson style, so he was our second nonpartisan president.

Level 72
Jan 25, 2021
I know that your username would suggest that you like Lincoln the best, but Washington was without a doubt the best possible choice for a first president. His humility and desire to make the government work the way it should was paramount to making sure that we didn't fall right back into a dictatorship or that he would take on the role of king. His choice to step aside after 2 terms is, I think, the single more important choice made by any American in politics, period.

Well, Washington and Jefferson owned slaves, John Adams tried to criminalize speech against the government, Lincoln threw lots of people in jail without due process (arguably necessary under the circumstances, perhaps), and JFK cheated on his wife... so, maybe? I don't know enough about John Quincy Adams to have any dirt on him.

Jefferson tried to write a condemnation of slavery into the declaration of Independence. He may have owned slaves, but he hated the practice, and made it illegal to be involved in the trade. He may not have outlawed slavery itself, but he stopped more slaves from coming.

Here's a relevant quote: 'People happy with the results argue the system is working fine -- of course they do. Their team won. But government isn't a sport where a singular "winner" must be determined. It's a system to make rules that everyone follows and so, we need a system where everyone can agree the process is fair even if the results don't go in their favour. If you support a system that disenfranchises people you don't like and turbo-franchises people you do - then it doesn't look like you support representative democracy, it looks like you support a kind of dictatorship lite.' That's CGP Grey. If you're upset with how the election turned out, *tough luck*. There's a set of rules for how an election works and, no matter how stupid the rules are, Trump used them to garner a majority of electoral college. Logically, he is the president. He isn't a good president? Well, neither were any of the others, according to (about) half of all people. At least in most cases. Deal with it.

Level 52
May 23, 2020
The smaller the state the more representation they have per capita. Each state gets 2 guaranteed seats in the electoral college no matter the size. Those 2 seats become more valuable when the population is smaller - so the smaller the state the more representation they get.

Bigger states are under-represented.

For all of you guys ranting on about the electoral college and how the election should be decided on the popular vote, there's a reason we have the electoral college. This reason is so other states with lower populations (ex: Wyoming, the Dakotas, Montana) can have a say in the voting. Our government is a republic, so everyone has a say. If the elections were decided on the popular vote, the election would be decided only in the states with a large population such as California, New York, Texas, and Florida. So that would basically ruin the point of our government and start a tyranny.
+24
Level 81
Mar 1, 2018
Every ONE has a say? That doesn't make any sense when the ONEs from Wyoming have 3.6x the voting power as the ONEs from California. We've moved past the idea that the United States is a collection of states with competing interests. We're all one country. The only reason Republicans want to disenfranchise people so much or reduce their voting power is because they know that they can't possibly win if the will of the people was accurately represented. They NEED things like gerrymandering, illegal voter purging and voter registration restrictions, and the electoral college to hold on to power. If you're worried about tyranny look to those who represent a minority and are imposing their will on the majority, not the majority who have no power.

I could get behind the 6-week-long election season Australia has or whatever it is, I could have the time period wrong. Trump started his campaign to get reelected like the day after being sworn in, and most candidates for president in the USA start trying to generate buzz at least 3 or 4 years before the election and then start openly campaigning at least a year before. It's exhausting, even though you do have longer to vet and get to know everyone that is running.

Minus Polk the run of 8 presidents before Lincoln are also not well known amongst Americans. They were all forgettable. Most of them exercised little power (Congress was really in control of the country at the time). A few of them died a short while in to their terms in office. One was not even elected. And all are ranked among the worst presidents in US history, though Trump has got them beat in that category according to the latest polls.

While it's true only 44 men have served as president, often people get confused because the current president is usually listed as the 45th. That's because Garfield, who served two non-consecutive terms, is listed as both POTUS # 22 and POTUS #24.

Everyone talks about the Electoral College (rightly so), but what about the fact that elections take place on a working day, and that voting is a complicated hassle compared to other countries?

It seems like presidents' middle initials and middle names are accepted rather inconsistently. Richard M. Nixon is not accepted, but Dwight D. Eisenhower is. William Jefferson Clinton is accepted, but Barack Hussein Obama is not. It seems to me like the best fix is "don't make more work for yourself by entering unnecessary initials" but I can also see an argument that the quiz should be consistent on this.

I mean, if you want to do the two Harrisons, the two Johnsons, the two Adamses, and the two Bushes separately then fine, add first names and middle initials where necessary.

Not during his 2nd term. He left office after 2 terms, then decided he didn't like the job Taft was doing and sought a 3rd term. He failed to get the Republican nomination so he ran third party and ended up splitting the vote, thus leading to Wilson winning the election.

It's not looking like they will, but if they did; No, technically he wouldn't. Invoking the 25th doesn't actually remove the President from office. The Vice President becomes "Acting President" and all the President's powers are transferred over, but the sitting President remains the sitting President until their term ends or the 25th is revoked.
