Trump won the popular vote in 31 states; Hillary won 19 and DC. That’s 62% to her 38%. Trump led in the total popular vote for all states except California.
Hillary won California 5,860,714 to Trump’s 3,151,821. 61.6% to 33.1% exclusive of the other candidates. Thus California gave Hillary the popular vote for all states as claimed by the Democrats and their media stooges.
Do you remember that the California State Senate Majority Leader admitted on national television that half his family members were illegal aliens and all had fake Social Security Cards? Some Illegal Immigrants have as many as seven fake Social Security Cards and likely vote seven times. I believe Hillary would probably have won in California even if the election was completely honest but I will never believe Hillary actually defeated Bernie. Hillary had to pay people to attend her rallies while Bernie had Rock Star attendance.
If you deduct her California vote from her national vote leaving her with 54,978,783, and deduct Trump’s California vote from his national total, leaving him with 57,113.976, he wins in a landslide in the other 49 states, 51.3% to her 48.7%.
So, in effect, Hillary was elected president of California and Trump was elected president of the rest of the country by a substantial margin.
This exemplifies the wisdom of the Electoral College, to prevent the vote of any one populace state from overriding the vote of the others. Trump’s Campaign Manager, Kellyanne Conway, whose expertise is polling, saw this early on and devised her strategy of “6 pathways to the White House”.
This meant ignoring California with its huge Democrat majority and going after the states that would give him the necessary electoral votes to win, FL, NC, MI, PA, OH, and WI.
At its lowest point since the civil war, could this election mean the end of the Democrat Party? The GOP now has:
1) The Presidency.
2) A majority of the House of Representatives.
3) A majority of the Senate.
4) Almost two-thirds of all the governorships.
5) Total control of the statehouses in almost two-thirds of all the states.
And in the near future, Republicans will be able to add:
6) A majority of the Supreme Court.
The above has never happened before in American history. Think about that and let it sink in for a moment. And it’s all because of one reason: Barack Obama and his radicals forcing their extreme far-left agenda on an unwilling country by executive orders, left wing judges, and sycophantic bureaucrats.
Don’t let the corrupt media rob you of your joy over this victory. The first President who did not receive a majority of the popular vote also failed to receive a majority of the Electoral College vote. The sixth president, John Quincy Adams, lost to Andrew Jackson but was put in office by the House of Representatives as was their right by law. Nobody turned over buggies or burned down Livery Stables.
President John Quincy Adams took the oath of office on a book of constitutional law, instead of the Holy Bible. Four years later, Old Hickory, Andrew Jackson, was elected outright and served eight years.
With the demand that we do away with the Electoral College and take the popular vote being pushed by the media, etc., all Americans need to know that the Electoral College is working exactly as our Founding Fathers intended.
Citizens might know these things if our education system was about learning instead of about money and if lousy teachers could be fired like everybody else except lazy bureaucrats?
