* ''WesternAnimation/BeavisAndButthead'' were once given an assignment for History class in which they were required to run for class president. The school only gives them one vote (can you blame them?), but they briefly misinterpret the report to mean they lost by one vote.

** And like in real life, the Donald Trump expy beats Hilary Clinton with over 66% of the popular vote. Randy reacts [[PlanetOfTheApes as if he saw the Statue of Liberty in the sand]] and one guy shoots himself.

* ''Literature/TheRuinsOfAnAmericanPartySystem'': In 1932, Floyd Olsen becomes the first Progressive elected as President when he wins 39 out of 48 states, with the remainder being split among the various other candidates. And even this gets outmatched in 1936, when Olson's Vice-President Fiorello LaGuardia wins all but four states.

* The 2002 Presidential Election on ''Series/TheWestWing'' was originally predicted to be close, but instead turned into a LandslideElection after President Bartlet ''[[CurbStompBattle eviscerated]]'' Governor Richie in the debate.

* ''Series/StarTrekDeepSpaceNine'': Implied to be the case in the special election for Bajoran first minister in the third season. Kira notes that Shakaar is effectively running unopposed, with only niche, regional candidates running against him.



* The ''Series/{{Skins}}'' election for Student President; Naomi is the intelligent, politically inclined, idealistic, injustice hating candidate who thinks she might be able to use the position to make a difference - up against Cook, whose slogan is "vote for me - I don't give a fuck either", and UpperClassTwit Crispin. Since all the students know that the election is largely a show for something that'll look good on the school's OFSTED report, they buy into Cook's anarchic philosophies instead. The teachers attempt to rig the result by stuffing the ballots for Cook into Harriet's bra, and declaring Naomi the winner. Naomi overheard their whole plan though, and since this is injustice hating Naomi we're talking about she [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome pulls out all the votes in front of everybody and gracefully concedes defeat]]. And Cook promptly starts a riot.
* By Season 3 of ''Series/{{Gotham}}'', Penguin has become such a VillainWithGoodPublicity that when he runs for Mayor of Gotham, he's able to absolutely crush incumbent Aubry James. ''Legitimately''.

* An episode of ''WesternAnimation/RockosModernLife'' had Ed Bighead winning the election (after a giant smear campaign against Rocko) with hundred of thousands of votes and only two votes for Rocko when campaigning for the city dog catcher. (The two votes being Rocko himself and Filburt - Heffer broke down and cried that ''even he'' couldn't vote against Ed after his campaign.)
