Thanks so much vandygrad11.
I was not sure about the second question. I was wondering whether I should consider the '% of popular vote' or the 'actual value of popular votes' information to answer. So you say we should use the 'actual value of popular votes' info to answer this.
Happy to help. I don't think there can be any doubt that they are referring to the 'actual value of popular votes'. The question asks about the percent increase in popular vote
. You're right to question your understanding of a problem, but be careful not to overthink it! Your other option would require the statement to read something like this: "Of those Presidents elected for two terms, Clinton had the smallest increase in percentage of popular vote between the two years".
