Is Trump the most unpopular President-elect? History would like to check your answer.
Abraham Lincoln (Republican) was elected with 39.8% of the popular vote in 1860.
Following that, seven states seceded from the country between election day and inauguration day. South Carolina, Mississippi, Florida, Alabama, Georgia, Louisiana, Texas, and Virginia were all gone before March 4, 1861. A fairly strong statement about their feelings about the incoming administration, eh?
Unless I've missed it, none of the States have decided to object to the current President-elect by seceding from the Union and taking up arms.
History gives the nod to the Great Emancipator as the most unpopular President-elect by a landslide.
Tomorrow begins a new chapter in the American Story. I am choosing to greet it with hope.
