The Facts About the 2016 Presidential Election


The following email was submitted to Pesky Truth by our roving correspondent, Rock P.

A big H/T to him for digging up The Facts!


But here are the facts:

Trump won the popular vote in 31 states to Hillary’s 19 and DC.  62% to her 38%.
Trump led in the total popular vote for all states except California.

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

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 vote of any one heavily populated state from overriding the vote of the others.
Trump’s Campaign Manager, Kellyanne Conway, whose expertise is polling, saw this early on and devised her strategy of “6 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.

Could this mean the end of the Democrat Party?  The party will be at its lowest point since the civil war!  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 governorships.
5)  Total control of the statehouses in almost two-thirds of all the states.

And in the near future, Republicans will be able to add:
6)  A majority of the Supreme Court.  The above has never happened before in American history.

Think about that and let it sink in for a moment. And it’s all because of one reason:  Barack Obama’s forcing his extreme far-left agenda on an unwilling country by executive orders, left wing judges, and obsequious bureaucrats. It’s important to pass this on.  With the demand that we do away with the Electoral College and take the popular vote being pushed by the media, etc, all Americans need to know that the Electoral College is working exactly as our Founding Fathers intended.



NOTE: We submitted the data in the following email to our favorite fact-checkers at Pesky Facts to verify the validity of the email’s content. After checking five sources for 2016 election results by state, the numbers in the email could not be corroborated (exactly). However, none of the facts noted were deemed to be wrong, it’s just that the exact numbers differed from our sources. The statements are true, we just couldn’t locate the source for the votes shown in the content.

  1. Nice post, Kathy. I lived most of my adult life in Ca and did feel it to be a nation-state. Perhaps, though, all states are now nation-states.

    I enjoyed your blog and will look forward to your future comments.

  2. I love the site; in fact my wife and I leave Tuesday to go to our very first ever Inauguration swearing-in/ parade/ event followed by dinner & ballroom dancing at Virginia Women For Trump (Falls Church just in case anyone of your other fine readers happens to be in the area!); both on Friday. My comment is “what happened to New York” in this discussion? We live in “irrelevant California” who blathers garbage about seceding from the Union (baloney; we don’t make anywhere near enough money even with Facebook & Silicon Valley to support the whole damned state) so those people are true BLUE idiots….however I love the fact that if you discount our already deplorable state isn’t NY the “other one” that got her some important Electoral votes? Clearly no where near enough…got that…happy about it…but it seems like NY sort of got lost in the fact checking…right or wrong?


    • Bob, I hope y’all have a lovely time and would love to hear your thoughts on the inauguration once you return.

      Kudos to you for surviving in such a blue state – people like you are few and far between.


  3. I most definitely agree with Rock P. that it was the leftwing, anti-Constitution agenda of Barack Obama & Co. that helped Republicans dominate these past few elections. I also agree in the wisdom of the Electoral College and that we must fight to keep it.

    I don’t agree that this was a landslide election. The very first presidential election I can remember as a child was the contest between Richard Nixon and George McGovern. Nixon won 520 electoral votes and 49 states to McGovern’s 17 electoral votes and one state. THAT was a landslide. Nixon beat McGovern by nearly 18 million votes. In 1984 Ronald Reagan won 525 electoral votes and 49 states to Walter Mondale’s 13 electoral votes and one state. Reagan beat Mondale by nearly 17 million votes. THAT was a landslide. Since then we seem to be re-defining what it means to win in a landslide. By my count Trump won 29 out of 50 states, four of which he won by a margin of 1.2% or less, while losing the popular vote by about 3 million votes. That’s not a landslide folks, and it’s a big mistake to fool ourselves into thinking that it was. This was a close election, and Trump is going to have his work cut out for him to win over a meaningful majority of the American population.
