Best number of the day: 52 percent of Republicans think Trump won the popular vote

imageHe didn’t. In fact, if facts count anymore, Hillary Clinton’s lead now exceeds 2.8 million votes (more than 2.1 percent of the total vote).

But according to one survey:

A large fraction of Republicans — 52 percent — said Trump won the popular vote, compared with only 7 percent of Democrats and 24 percent of independents. Among Republicans without any college education, the share was even larger: 60 percent, compared with 37 percent of Republicans with a college degree.

Well, super. And another thing, stop with the “popular vote” nonsense. She won the most votes, period. He won based on a system designed, at least in part, to thwart the will of the people. Ironically, it was also designed to ensure an unqualified dolt wouldn’t become president.
