AND: He would have won even more votes if it weren't for votes for Libertarian Gary Johnson...

Do you have any other source. I just googled the results and Clinton is at 61,039,676 and Trump at 60,371,19.

Remember that Trump overcame both the Hillary and Gary Johnson obstacles. So funny where third parties got more votes than the Dim offer for prez...
Hillary Clinton, Meet Gary Johnson…
Here’s a table of Gary Johnson’s share of the third-party vote:

State Third-Party/Write-Ins Total Johnson’s Share
Wisconsin 151,162 106,470 / 70.4%
Pennsylvania 210,805 141,476 / 67.1%
Florida 295,721 206,189 / 69.7%
It is indisputable that Johnson’s libertarian voter-base is strongly anti-authoritarian, young, & fall on the far-right of the political spectrum — none of which are very favorable demographics, in this case. By which I mean that it’d be difficult for even the most determined optimist to imagine that Clinton — a liberal, establishment-democrat — could even get near the 50% mark with these folks. Yet, she would need to score — not 50%, not 60% — but 70%+ of the 69.7% libertarian votein Florida!
