Election time comes with a lot of stress and anxiety for many of us. However, despite any political affiliation, we have to admit that some of the creative slogans to come out of presidential campaigns are on point. Whether they are hilariously horrible or surprisingly successful, this list has the best of the best (or the worst of the worst as the case may be).
Franklin Pierce (1852)
We Polked You in ’44, We Shall Pierce You In ‘52. Yikes. Sure, the mid-1800s was a completely different time, but this somehow passed the standard for campaign slogans. Needless to say, nothing like this would fly nowadays. The thought was to remind the public of the last Democratic candidate, James Polk, and then to introduce the new candidate, Franklin Pierce. The campaign was successful – Pierce was elected the 14th president of the United States.
