I didn't say that it wasn't the way our election works. As a matter of fact i said that i agree with the Electoral College and the way our elections work. I was simply letting you know that your statement "The American people spoke" was incorrect. The American people chose Clinton. Their representatives at the Electoral College will choose Trump. You never know though...some of them might go rouge Dec 19th :). [Link: change.org]
The difference in votes as of yesterday was about 200K. What is the margin of error?
"As of midday Thursday ET, Clinton had amassed 59,938,290 votes nationally, to Trump's 59,704,886 — a margin of 233,404 that puts Clinton on track to become the fifth U.S. presidential candidate to win the popular vote but lose the election.
Neither candidate got more than 50 percent of the vote: As of noon Wednesday, Clinton stood at 47.7 percent and Trump at 47.5 percent."
59,704,886 Americans spoke.
