Hillary’s Dubious Popular Vote Victory: Just One State

Defeated, desperate Democrats try to console themselves by emphasizing that Hillary Clinton won the popular vote by more than 1.5 million, but this fact hardly suggests a national preference for liberal policies or personalities. Hillary’s advantage was based entirely on a single state, which is why she lost the Electoral College so decisively.

Without California—where she won overwhelmingly—she lost the other 49 states and the District of Columbia by more than a million votes!

If you leave out both California and New York, Trump swept the rest of the country by 3 million votes, carrying 30 of the 50 states. Democrats won’t be able to compete in future presidential elections with most of their votes and power concentrated in a few wealthy states on the two coasts.

Winning New York City by an overwhelming margin won’t help if you lose Ohio, Florida, Pennsylvania, Michigan and Wisconsin.
