Hillary Clinton Might Have Lost The Election But She Won The Popular Vote (PETITIONS)

Here's a kick in the ass: American's choose Clinton but they got Trump instead.

Despite losing Tuesday’s presidential election, Hillary Clinton was the choice of the people as a day after Election Day she has taken the lead in the popular vote.

With nearly 125 million votes counted, Clinton had 47.6 percent of the vote and Trump had 47.4 percent.

That’s a lead of about 200,000 votes. A lead that will only grow in the coming days as most of the outstanding votes appear to be in Democratic-leaning states

The biggest chunk of uncounted votes is in California, Washington State, New York, Oregon and Maryland.

Since Clinton won all those states so it stands to reason that she will pad her vote lead by more than an estimated 1 million votes.

This means that Hillary Clinton will become the second Democratic candidate for president this century to win the popular vote but lose the presidency joining, ironically, her husband's Vice President Al Gore.

It was after Gore's loss in the 2000 presidential election to Republican George W. Bush, despite winning the popular, that calls to deep six the outdated voting system.

Unfortunately scraping the Electoral College isn't likely to to happen anytime soon now that Republicans control both the House and Senate.

But it doesn't mean we shouldn't raise our concerns and voices about initiating the archaic practice repeal.

In fact most American's are in favor of just such a move according to a 2011 Gallup poll...

Now let this sink in... Without the Electoral College, Trump wouldn’t have been elected president.

If having the candidate our country chose loosing the election twice in 16 years rubs you the wrong way here are a few petitions you might want to sign your name to...
