Presidential elections usually go smoothly once the votes are in, but sometimes they don’t.
In 1960, the presidential election between Republican Richard Nixon and Democrat John F. Kennedy was challenged by many Republicans who thought Kennedy had won because of election fraud. Kennedy was declared the winner, as Nixon admitted defeat.
The Gore campaign wanted to recount the votes, which the Bush campaign fought against. After Bush was finally declared Florida’s winner, Gore once again fought the results. The Supreme Court eventually had to rule. They stopped the count, and Bush was declared the winner.
Many Americans believe that a Supreme Court case may once again decide the winner of the presidential election. The 2020 election results have a lot of confusion, but America has faced this kind of situation before.
