Still showing everyone you arent a math mathematician I see.

12.5 million out of 65 million..

Using the primaries to try and determine a general election...better yet, comparing it to a general election is ridiculous. The voter turn out is much higher...Much higher, in a general election.

Oh, this excuse again? Most of the 16 dropped out before we even got to the serious voting, and there were 3 others running against Hillary, not just 1. nice try though
