For shits and giggles, I decided to go to the Politico Election page and run the numbers on this election.
See, the big bug up the Left’s ass is that Hillary Clinton won the popular vote by 202,340 votes. That’s about the population of Fayetteville, North Carolina. Hell, Birmingham, Alabama has ten thousand more people than that.
But Hillary’s flock are really apoplectic over the fact that she received 202,340 more votes than Donald Trump.
For that small number, they feel as though they were robbed.
”Hillary got the majority! She was the more popular candidate!!!!”
I got curious. I decided to find out how many of the total votes went to Hillary Rodham Clinton.
So I went down through Politico’s state-by-state vote tallies and added up all the third party candidates’ votes to see what I came up with.
Six million, seventy-thousand, eight-hundred and two people voted for one of the many third-party candidates running for President. To put it into perspective, that’s more than the combined population of Houston and Chicago.
That means that the total number of people who voted against Hillary Clinton was 65,682,480 people.
In other words, Hillary Clinton received 47.6% of the popular vote.
For those keeping score, that means the majority of votes cast did not, in fact, go to Hillary Clinton.
Neither Donald Trump nor Hillary Clinton won a majority of votes.
But our Presidential elections are not determined by majority of votes. Rather, they are determined by the majority of Electors.
We do not live in a pure Democracy. We live in a Republic. Our Presidential elections are not based on majoritarian rule. Voters were casting their ballots to determine which candidate would receive their state’s Electoral votes.
Donald Trump received the most Electoral votes. So he won the election.
It’s not rocket science, kids.
Maybe if these crying children would take a Civics class instead of something like Gender Roles in Comic Books or Queer Musicology, they might be able to grasp that.
