Hillary Clinton's Popular Vote Lead Now Over 2 Million

At least six electors in the USA have vowed to cast ballots that don't align with the popular vote results of their states.

Back in 2012, Donald Trump called the Electoral College a "disaster for democracy" and refused to accept the results of the vote.

"Trump is kidding nobody on climate as he simultaneously stacks his transition team and cabinet with climate-science deniers and the dirtiest hacks the fossil-fuel industry can offer", Brune said in a statement.

"The Founding Fathers created the Electoral College as the last line of defense, and I think we must do all that we can to ensure that we have a Reasonable Republican candidate who shares our American values", DailyNews cited him as saying.

It is the second time this century that a Democrat has won the popular vote but lost the presidential election.

Of course, presidents are elected by the Electoral College, not the popular vote, and what sunk Clinton's campaign was her performance in the key battleground states, particularly in the Midwest. "I'm not sure it's possible to undo the results, and all the people are focusing their energy on opposing the worst ideas of this administration at this point, not the legitimacy of the results", Daniel Doubet, an organizer for Keystone Progress, told The New York Times.

In 2000, vice president Al Gore lost to George W. Bush despite winning almost 544,000 more votes than his Republican rival.

Mrs. Clinton and also former president Bill Clinton, must now be concerned about their legacy.


Statisticians looking at the popular vote say claims of vote-rigging are unlikely to stand up.

Clinton's margin in the popular vote against Trump's as additional votes have been counted in the presidential election, furthered the record for a candidate who lost in the Electoral College. That you are no different than the swamp you want to drain.

Today, the Electoral College simply feeds political ennui.

US officials say in the two weeks since the election, the president-elect has attended far fewer briefings than his predecessors.

- Disavowed white nationalist sympathizers who celebrated his election during a conference in Washington over the weekend.

"Three thousand votes are all that separate Clinton and Trump in New Hampshire". It has also caused many to question the Electoral College and Democratic strategies for winning presidential elections. Pick a position. Do you want an establishment bulwark against populist candidates or don't you?

October 1, Hillary Clinton asked the Coast Guard for permission to shoot off fireworks, then abruptly cancelled on November 7, the day of the election. Why?
