IT’S OFFICIAL! Look What We Just Learned About the Popular Vote
The results are in, and it looks like Hillary Clinton owes her popular vote majority to just ONE STATE – California.
Investor’s Business Daily reported:
Democrats who are having trouble getting out of the first stage of grief — denial — aren’t being helped by the fact that, now that all the votes are counted, Hillary Clinton’s lead in the popular vote has topped 2.8 million, giving her a 48% share of the vote compared with Trumps 46%.
To those unschooled in how the United States selects presidents, this seems totally unfair. But look more closely at the numbers and you see that Clinton’s advantage all but disappears.
As we noted in this space earlier, while Clinton’s overall margin looks large and impressive, it is due to Clinton’s huge margin of victory in one state — California — where she got a whopping 4.3 million more votes than Trump.
California is the only state, in fact, where Clinton’s margin of victory was bigger than President Obama’s in 2012 — 61.5% vs. Obama’s 60%.
This is why the Electoral College is so important, my friends. If a candidate could campaign solely in one state, and focus solely on the interests of the people in one area, the rest of the country would be completely left out. The corn farmer in Ohio would be forgotten, the coal miner in Kentucky would be S.O.L.
This is precisely why Donald Trump won the election. The average American is sick and tired of being abandoned by their elected officials in Washington, who favor their progressive agenda over the will of the people.
