Majority Party: House Republicans Win National 'Popular Vote' By Three Million Guy Benson Posted: Nov 11, 2016
As the Left grapples with Hillary Clinton's shocking electoral loss on Tuesday, many are pointing to her popular vote "victory" as if it proves something meaningful. It does not. Sure, it's a piece of interesting historical trivia that she will end up receiving more raw votes nationwide than Donald Trump, but presidential elections are decided based on the outcomes of 50 separate popular votes (plus DC, and setting aside the proportional systems in Nebraska and Maine), of which Donald Trump appears to have won 30. Those wins will reap him 306 electoral votes, well over the winning threshold.
