There have been perversions of democracy throughout its history, the most notorious example being the democratic election of Adolf Hitler as Chancellor of Germany in 1933.
More recent examples include:
Nick Clegg effectively using all the Lib Dem votes cast in the 2010 general election as one block vote to support a Tory government.
Possibly - lots of Tory supporters joined the Labour Party to vote for the 'unelectable' Jeremy Corbyn in the leadership contest
The current government using a marginal majority vote a non-binding referendum, after a campaign of lies, as grounds for Britain leaving the EU.
A new marine research vessel being named the 'Sir David Attenborough' despite the name 'Boaty McBoatface' receiving the most votes!
Donald Trump becoming president in the USA despite many more people voting for Hillary Clinton.
