Donald Trump has lost popular vote by greater margin than any US President

Post by sassy on Tue Dec 13, 2016 9:12 pm

President-elect is now 2.8 million votes behind Hillary Clinton - five times more than the second biggest deficit

Donald Trump lost the popular vote in last month’s US presidential election by a bigger margin than any other US president in history. 
The Republican is currently trailing Democrat rival Hillary Clinton by 2.8 million votes as the last remaining postal ballots are counted – despite him winning the November 8 election because of the Electoral College system.
That deficit is more than five times bigger than the 544,000 by which George W. Bush lost to Al Gore in 2000 - the second biggest popular vote deficit in history for a candidate who has still gone on to become President.

Makes a mockery of 'democracy' really doesn't it.

It is pretty ridiculous.

"Lost by greatest margin than any other president."

That's not a record to be proud of. It does not change anything, he will still be president,  but of course such statistics can be useful for leverage.
