2016 Popular Vote Facts

Trump won the popular vote in 31 states to her 19 and DC. 

That’s 62% to her 38%.  

Trump led in the total popular vote total for all states except California.

Hillary won California 5,860,714 to Trump’s 3,151,821. 

That’s 61.6% to 33.1%, exclusive of the other candidates.

Thus California gave Hillary the popular vote for all states as claimed by the Democrats and their media allies. 

But, deduct her California vote from her national vote leaving her with 54,978,783, and deduct Trump’s California vote from his national total, leaving him with 57,113.976, he wins in a landslide in the other 49 states, 51.3% to her 48.7%.

So, in effect, Hillary was elected president of California and Trump was elected president of the rest of the country, by a substantial margin.

This exemplifies the wisdom of the Electoral College, to prevent the votes of any one populace state from overriding the votes of the others.

Trump’s Campaign Manager, Kellyanne Conway, whose expertise is polling, saw this early on and devised her strategy of “Six Pathways to the White House.”  This meant ignoring California with its huge Democrat majority and going after the states that would give him the necessary electoral votes to win, FL, NC, MI, PA, OH, and WI.

When the afternoon of January 20, 2017 arrives, the Republican Party will have: 

1)  The Presidency.

2)  A majority of the House of Representatives. 

3)  A majority of the Senate. 

4)  Almost two-thirds of all the governors. 

5)  Total control of the statehouses in almost two-thirds of all the states. 

6)  And in the near future, Republicans will be able to add a majority of the Supreme Court. 

The above has never happened before in American history.

Think about this and let it sink in for a moment. History is being made and you are a witness.
