Election of 1916 Summary

In 1916, World War I had no end in sight. It was a bloodbath in Europe with hundreds of thousands of soldiers fighting until their death. For most of the war, America mostly sat on the sidelines.

But when Germany sank a British ship carrying Americans, the United States had a choice for action. Without a doubt, foreign policy dominated voter action.

Woodrow Wilson won re-election edging out Charles Hughes. But it was close. While Wilson gained 277 electoral votes, Hughes received 254.
