The Left now complain about the popular vote, as if the rules in presidential elections suddenly changed.
These whiners could have a ham under each arm, and would complain they didn’t have biscuits.
Liberals lose badly. And they had become so accustom to winning, they figured they’d never lose again. Keep in mind, post-Obama, the Democrats have been beaten like rapist at the nudist colony.
They’ve lost state houses, governorships, the House, the Senate, and now the presidency. But ask them, and they report, “We’re on the right path.”
Obama couldn’t have been a better president for Republicans if he were a Republican plant, hired to infiltrate and ruin the Democrats.
After pulling out all the stops, Barack Obama couldn’t drag Hillary Clinton tread-worn carcass across the finish line, legitimately. So all that remains is for the Left to complain about the process.
“Clinton won the popular vote!”, they protest.
No argument from the winners. Here’s Hillary’s 2nd Place trophy.
Unfortunately what Hillary Clinton accomplished doesn’t get you the presidency.
There is a reason for the electoral college, and Donald Trump’s shellacking of Hillary Clinton can be shown in the real election numbers.
The Associated Press finds that Clinton won 487 counties nationwide, compared with 2,626 for President-elect Donald Trump. Thus the total number of counties in America is 3113. Rounded up, Clinton won 16 percent of the counties in the election, which means President-elect Trump won 84 percent of the counties.
Thus, using the logic of the Democrats, if the election were about “counties” won, Trump beat Hillary Clinton to within an inch of her political life.
In New York state where Hillary Clinton received an overwhelming number of the popular vote, Trump won 46 of the 62 counties, and Hillary Clinton carried 16.
At latest count, Clinton won the popular vote by approx. 2.5 million votes.
Note that in the 5 counties that encompass NYC, (Bronx, Brooklyn, Manhattan, Richmond & Queens), Clinton received well over 2 million more votes than Trump. Further, Clinton did not sweep these counties, as she won 4, while Trump won Richmond.
Nevertheless, these 5 counties alone can almost account for the disparity in the popular vote won by Clinton.
These facts might make Clinton the president of New York City, but DeBlasio already has that job.
Let’s shift to land mass
As the voting map suggest, Hillary Clinton is in no way the president in any way.
These 5 counties of NY have a land mass of 319 square miles. This is a very small portion of the 3,797,000 square miles that makes up the United States.
When you have a country that encompasses almost 4 million square miles of territory, it would be ludicrous to even suggest that the vote of those who inhabit a mere 319 square miles should dictate the outcome of a national election.
As the electoral process has proven yet again, densely populated Democrat-controlled speak for the rest of our country. Because what the rest of the country mandated loudly and clearly was the need for change from Barack Obama and his Liberal policies.
