Liberals and democrats continue with their petitions to put Hillary Clinton in the White House, even though Clinton lost the 2016 election in a fair fight.
Liberals claim that Hillary will win the popular vote, but that’s actually unlikely. You see, Hillary may win the votes that were counted, but not the total number of votes that were completed. What does that mean? It means that at some point the people counting votes might stop counting because the election is over. Trump won the electoral votes and that’s all he needed.
The electoral votes protect the integrity of your vote, ensuring that people in every state have an equal say and that specific states that are way overpopulated with democrats and liberals will not win the election every time. The electoral college ensures that low income people and high income people have the same say. The electoral college gives the six figure Wall street executive the same vote that the easy living farmer has in the rural parts of the country.
In essence, it keeps the election fair so that overpopulated states don’t have too much say and the little states can have their votes matter.
And let’s not forget that the liberals weren’t complaining about votes in 2008 and 2012 when Obama won.
Here’s more information from American Thinker that goes into the number of absentee votes that are often not even counted because it’s sometimes not needed.
States don’t count their absentee ballots unless the number of outstanding absentee ballots is larger than the state margin of difference. If there is a margin of 1,000 votes counted and there are 1,300 absentee ballots outstanding, then the state tabulates those. If the number of outstanding absentee ballots wouldn’t influence the election results, then the absentee ballots aren’t counted.
Who votes by absentee ballot? Students overseas, the military, business people on trips, etc. The historical breakout for absentee ballots is about 67-33% Republican. In 2000, when Al Gore “won” the popular vote nationally by 500,000 votes and the liberal media screamed bloody murder, there were 2 million absentee ballots in California alone. A 67-33 breakout of those yields a 1.33- to 0.667-million Republican vote advantage, so Bush would have gotten a 667,000-vote margin from California’s uncounted absentee ballots alone! So much for Gore’s 500,000 popular vote “victory.”
