Final Count ??

Further down the page, the site’s anonymous author wrote, "To all the liberal loonies still rioting because you claim Trump did not get the popular vote, get your meds now and prepare to be shocked because the finals results are in. Trump got 306 Electoral College vote while Hillary Clinton got 232. For #PopularVote: #Trump: 62,972,226 #Clinton: 62,277,750."

Something else to remember about the popular vote for the true believers:

Hillary wins the popular vote – not

Okay, let’s address this “Hillary might win the popular vote, isn’t that Electoral College situation just awful” thing head on.

No, it’s not awful.  It’s great, and it protects the importance of your vote.  It’s also uniquely American and demonstrates yet again the once-in-creation brilliance of the Founding Fathers.

First of all, she’s probably not going to win the actual number of votes cast.  She may win the number of votes counted, but not the votes cast.

States don’t count their absentee ballots unless the number of outstanding absentee ballots is larger than the state margin of difference.  If there is a margin of 1,000 votes counted and there are 1,300 absentee ballots outstanding, then the state tabulates those.  If the number of outstanding absentee ballots wouldn’t influence the election results, then the absentee ballots aren’t counted.

Who votes by absentee ballot?  Students overseas, the military, businesspeople on trips, etc.  The historical breakout for absentee ballots is about 67-33% Republican.  In 2000, when Al Gore “won” the popular vote nationally by 500,000 votes and the liberal media screamed bloody murder, there were 2 million absentee ballots in California alone.  A 67-33 breakout of those yields a 1.33- to 0.667-million Republican vote advantage, so Bush would have gotten a 667,000-vote margin from California’s uncounted absentee ballots alone!  So much for Gore’s 500,000 popular vote “victory.”  (That was the headline on the N.Y. Times, and it was the lead story on NBC Nightly News, right?  No?  You’re kidding.)

Bottom line, if you wish to ignore the verified facts above, the
Electoral college is the sensible way to give credit to every person
who cast their vote. Why do the cheating liberals flood the country
with illegals that are promised a free ride, after all, whitey will
donate by way of mobumcare and other scams they dream up.

Jack, tell what your opinion would be if the electorial vote  and the popular vote had been opposite.

hildabytch would have won, do you know the difference between
an opinion and a fact.? I realize you're ignorance of the election
process, so try reading the facts and stop listening to lying liberals
for once in your life. 

The US is a republic not a democracy.  in a democracy the majority votes would be the finality, meaning that a large population center, ie, a city, could dictate to the remainder of the country how they want it to be governed. In our Republic, the electoral college protects individuals for the most part, by not permitting large population centers, ie, cities, to dictate their preference.  This is great since most of the time these large centers, though they will never admit it, are far out of touch with reality and the common people.
