Which statement accurately describes the presidential election process in the United States? a. A candidate can lose the popular vote but win the electoral vote and become president. b. A candidate must win the popular vote in a majority of states to become president. c. A candidate can lose the electoral vote but win the popular vote and become president. d. A candidate cannot become president without receiving a majority of the popular vote.
I would say A because in the election between John Quincy Adams and Andrew Jackson, Adams won the least amount of popular votes, but gained more electoral votes and he became president because of that.
