US Election 1844

This was the 15th presidential election. But John Tyler actually dropped out for re-election.

James Polk emerged as a dark horse candidate, basically coming out of nowhere. His main idea was to expand the United States from east to west.

This widely popular belief helped James Polk earn top spot. In the US election of 1844, he became the 11th president of the United States with 170 electoral votes.
