Interesting Facts About the 2016 Election

One reason that Hillary lost in 2016 is that she got slightly fewer votes than Obama got in 2012: she received 65,853,000 vs. 65,915,000 for Obama. Trump, on the other hand, got over 2 million more votes than Romney got in 2012: he received 62,984,000 vs. 60,933,000 for Romney.

Not only did Trump beat Hillary in states won 30-20, but Trump buried Hillary in counties won: He won over 3,000 counties, while she won fewer than 200.

If you add up all the votes for president in the 2016 election, including votes for third-party presidential candidates, the center-right won the popular vote, not the left:

Trump -- 62,983,000
Johnson -- 4,500,000
McMullin -- 700,000
Castle -- 172,000
TOTAL -- 68,355,000

Clinton -- 65,853,000
Stein -- 469,000
TOTAL -- 66,322,000

This means that the center-right vote topped the center-left vote by more than 2 million votes: 68,355,000 to 66,322,000. That is encouraging.

And, excuse my interruption; if you took out only one county, Los Angles, Trump would have won the popular vote.

This is why I don't understand people voting Third Party.  The Libertarian Vote was 4 million.  That could have cost Trump the election.

ALL of my third-party-voting friends have told me that they are glad that Trump won and that Trump is proving to be a lot more conservative than they thought he would.
