George McClellan, 1864
George had little chance of winning the election because most of the states that would have voted against Lincoln were in the Confederacy anyway and couldn't vote, and Union soldiers, in a touching display of patriotism and voter fraud, intimidated potential Democrats at the polls, voted in states where they were not registered, and, in extreme cases, rose from the dead to cast their ballots for the Great Emancipator. The outcome proved George McClellan every bit as effective a presidential candidate as he had been a general.
Abraham Lincoln: 212
George McClellan: 21
