Trump lauds Electoral College as Clinton wins popular vote

Election forecaster Nate Silver, at, predicted that Clinton had a 72% chance of winning.

"We are calling on the Electors to ignore their states' votes and cast their ballots for Secretary Clinton", reads the petition.

If all 232 Democratic electors reached across the aisle and pledged to vote for a Republican alternative to Trump, it would be a dramatic and disarming gesture of bipartisanship that could help sway Republican electors. Should the victor of the most votes, Hillary Clinton, be voted into the presidency by the Electoral College?

Of course, Trump voters didn't think Clinton was the better candidate either, but they were far more likely to pick "don't know / no opinion" on several measures, rather than choosing Trump or Clinton. So again, what happened?

Current New York Times exit poll results indicate that 53 percent of Trump voters were male, while 42 percent were female. The state's electors will award Colorado's nine electoral votes to the Electoral College on December 19.

Most states count votes after Election Day.

But for Trump's election in 2016, the results should stand uncontested.

Donald Trump will become president even though he got 1.3 million votes less that Hillary Clinton - unless the Electoral College votes against him.

In last week's presidential election, Republican Donald Trump won 289 Electoral College votes, more than the 270 needed for him to become the nation's 45th president. The electoral vote and the popular vote have not coincided on five occasions, which means they have, however, coincided over 90 percent of the time.

The last time a candidate won the popular vote but lost the electoral vote was in 2000, when Al Gore ran as the democratic candidate against George W. Bush.

She says other electors in the state have also received emails. This often has a profound impact on voter turnout.

It has been speculated as to why voter turnout was this low.

Although numerous emails are part of a mass list, Kim said he was getting some personalized responses, as well. Some speak to the debates. To refine his metaphor: Most people don't really care how many points they get in Super Mario, they just want to defeat Bowser.

Trump received 58% of the white vote and 29% of the Latino vote. Shortly afterwards, Trump made his victory speech to a jubilant gathering at the Hilton in Manhattan, with the Vice President elect Mike Pence on his right and his youngest son Barron Trump on his left. Clinton was just an very bad choice for the Democrats, and they will be paying the price for the next four years. In an election focused on character, Trump won on the issues.

Some voted third party, some wrote in Harambe, but even more decided not to vote.

The apparent inaccuracy presented by this election cycle's polls has been attributed to false answers given by polling participants, largely because of the public controversy that continues to surround Donald Trump. "It is no shock to me that millions of people who voted for Mr Trump did so because they are sick and exhausted of the economic, political and media status quo".
