Plurality is when someone has the most popular vote but not enough to win.
The votes are in, Mr. Andrew Jackson has received the plurality of the votes. But sadly not enough to be our next president. Since no one has won over 51% of the votes we will have to take this decision to congress.
Favorite sons are the people who receive votes from their home state and all their political views reflection on what would benefit that state.
Of course he has plurality he is the most popular of the favriote sons.
The other favorite sons in this election were Henry Clay and John Quincy Adams.
Henry Clay used his advantage as Secretary to persuade the house of representatives to all vote for Adams.
There was a lot of suspicion about Clay persuading the house, but because there was no real evidence he was never charged.
Sadly his plan worked Adams became our next President.
Because Clay is the only real reason Adams won, he was quick to make him his Secretary Of State
I declare you my secretary of state!
At the next election, 1828, Andrew Jackson became our president.
