Clay, a Whig candidate, ended up losing New York by just 5,000 votes, mostly because of a third party candidate opposed to the annexation of Texas due to the expansion of slavery that would follow. If Clay had remained opposed to the annexation, he might have won the state, which would have handed him the election as well.
