In 1808, James Madison became the 4th president of the United States and won by a significant margin. He received 122 electoral votes, which represented 70% of the total voting.

This was the 6th presidential election. Similar to George Washington, Thomas Jefferson refused to seek a third term as president.

Even though Pinckney gained from the 1804 election, he still fell short with only 47 electoral votes. This spelled the end of Pinckney, paving the way for a new candidate to take his place in the Federalist party.
