Trump had fewer votes than Romney (how does that happen?). Trump lost the popular vote. It's impressive he won and all, but honestly it feels more like Hillary lost rather than Trump won.

If Obama had let all those out of prison Bill Clintoon locked up she would've won. Never underestimate the power of super predators.

Trump won by turning out the vote where it counted, like in Floriduh and Pennsylvania.

The Math: Trump 2016 Would've Beaten Obama 2012

What good was it for Romney to win Texas by over a million votes and a 16% advantage, but narrowly lose the big swing states?

Also Trump would have had a much bigger vote total had he not been stabbed in the back by the Neocons and NeverTrumpers who can go rot in hell.

The last time a republican idiot won the White House without the consent of the majority, we had 8 years of absolute disaster including the greatest attack on American soil in history, a total economic collapse, and the sending of thousands and thousands of our soldiers to die for nothing.

And now, they've done it again with even more gusto. God help us.

We elected Trump. We'll have to live with it.

If you do not like the way the president is elected you are free to raise an army and change it. War of the Roses all over again.
It's not that at all. It's just when you consider less people voted for him than Romney AND more people voted for Hillary than him, it feels a cheaper victory. it's a victory, but it feels like there should be an asterisk attached to the victory. Like this;


*Won




*Ran against Hillary Clinton who somehow managed to perform so horribly that she received 7 million less votes than Obama 4 years earlier. Trump's victory largely may have stemmed from running against such a weak candidate. This candidate also received more votes than Trump.


Did Trump win? Yeah of course he did. But it sure is ugly when you really look at it

Of course, none of that happened in the way you described it.

How many people do you think live in California?

Trump would have had to have an incredible, inconceivable night and handily win nearly every state he did end up winning by substantial margins to overtake the massive gaps between registered Republicans and Democrats in huge states like New York and California.

More people voted for Trump than obama. But, at this point you will undoubtedly cling to anything to make yourself feel better.

That's only cuz you're liberal. You're not familiar with the constitution nor why. If it helps you sleep nights, Hillary won cuz California says she did.

I didn't vote for Trump. Not that I answer to your sorry ass.

But you didn't elect Clinton. You get to live with that. Good luck ?

I can only hope she fades away very fast.

After 8 years of Obama, my write in for Bozo the Clown still seems like a good choice.

No they didn't. You're own link puts Obama at +6,000,000

God I can't believe you fucking idiots pulled this off...

All of it. There were NOT 8 years of an absolute disaster. Bush wasn't responsible for the greatest attack on America, Clinton was. The economy did not totally collapse, and the thousands who died did NOT die for nothing.

Why not just admit you have a warped view of life? Come on, don't puss out now.
