Failed to become president despite winning most of the popular vote in 1824?

Andrew Jackson is the presidential candidate who won the popular vote in the 1824 election but failed to secure the presidency. Despite winning the highest number of popular votes, Jackson did not have the majority needed in the electoral college, and the election was ultimately decided by the House of Representatives, who chose John Quincy Adams as the president. This outcome is often referred to as the "corrupt bargain" because Adams appointed Henry Clay, who had supported him, as his Secretary of State.
