    Trump barely won by fewer than 80,000 votes spread across three states. Done a lot to expand his base has he?

    Obama was elected by liberal media propaganda.

    No big deal. Makes sense that when a slate of electors win voter approval, the Electoral College system places the presidential pick solely in their hands.

    We won't be seeing the likes of the 1824 election anytime soon. In that year Andrew Jackson won both the popular vote and won the most electoral votes, but not the majority. The House of Representatives then went with runner-up John Quincy Adams.

    Trump won the popular vote in 49 states by 1 million votes, the will of the people was respected.
