How many times did the person you vote for win?

I have voted in Three elections 2008, 2012 and 2016 I voted for Obama twice in 2008 and 2012 ,and Hillary in 2016.

So for me that's 2 wins and 1 loss.

To answer your question, though I have been around a little longer than you have, my score (if you want to frame it that way) is 6 wins and 4 losses.

As an FYI, I have voted for both (D's & R's) when the parties have given me good choices. The (D's) have fallen short as of late, with candidates like Bill Clinton or JFK long gone from the Democratic party. Neither of them could even get the nomination of the party today, which frankly is very sad and indicative of how far to the left the (D's) have become.

I voted for Trump. Before that it was Ross Perot and before that it was Jesse Jackson.

Honestly I didn't want to vote in either the 2012 or the 2016 election. More so in the 2016 election I personally wanted to stay home in the 2016 election. My parents and co-workers kinda pushed me vote in the last election. Telling me how important it was to vote and how Trump was unfit for office. So I voted at the last minute for Hillary although I personally just wanted to stay home in that election. As for the 2012 election I felt Obama needed a second chance because whether you were Republican or Democrat you couldn't undo the mess he inherited like the terrible economy ,and 2 wars in just 4 years. So I decided to give him a chance instead of staying home ,and voted for him again.

I'm 4 for 7. Happy to say I've never voted for a Democrat for President (except Trump) and I doubt I ever will.
