that would be either George Washington or Ronald Reagan.

George Washington was unanimously elected in 1789 with 69 electoral votes. (meaning he got 100% of the vote)

Ronald Reagan (against mondale in 1984) won 525 electoral votes (out of 538) the highest total ever received by a presidential candidate.

President Ronald Reagan had the highest total with 525 in the year but lost 13 votes in 1984. Franklin Roosevelt won 523 votes in 1936 and lost only 12 votes and that was before DC had its 3 votes which would surely have gone to FDR since the Democrats always win DC, so maybe the record deserves an asterisk.
