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.
