Twice now since the year 2000. Two elections the candidate that got more votes across the country by citizens did not become president. Again it doesn't matter if you get more votes from Americans you only win if you get electoral votes.
The first time was in 2000 election (I and my family wanted Bush then FYI) and now again in 2016. So 40% of elections since the turn of the millennia have elected a president that more people voted against.
Let me put it another way. More Americans voted for Romney in 2012 than people voted for Trump in 2016. https://mic.com/articles/159032/how-donald-trump-won-fewer-votes-than-romney-or-mc-cain-but-still-won-the-election#.3ekU4HIPO
