Trump won the electorate, not the popular vote. The question is this. How did he get the electorate, but not the popular vote?

Nope, can't hear the cows because in a lot of those red spaces, there are more cows than people. That map means nothing esp. when voters in many of those red areas are so disproportionately represented by the electoral college.

Here's a map that takes both votes and population density into account as well as reflecting that the nation is mostly purple anyway

Election maps
I have seen that before and thats a pitiful map. Trump won 30 out of 50 states and the most counties a republican has won since reagan. 2,623 counties to clintons 489.

Even carville and bloomberg are pessimistic about democrats chances in 2018 and 2020. Bloomberg said the Democratic Party is going to be torn apart by the left attacking centralists

The democrat party is being run by pelosi and schumer, not to mention an even more out of touch and hated media and idiot celebrities. Its like Dems love being humiliated and losing

Cows don't vote. Counties don't vote. People vote. And what you call the "pitiful map" represents people, actual voters.

Then I just read this off ann coulters twitter feed.

Illegal immigration and border security, voter id laws and stopping voter fraud and guys like kris kobach, job outsourcing and globalism,repairing infrastructure, cracking down on welfare and crime,are issues where republicans are going to win.

These never trump republicans should be voted out and banished after their humiliation

Problem is , he's all hat and no cattle. He promised us universal healthcare, cracking down on Immigration violations and outsourcing, but he outsources and uses H2b labor himself, recently increasing the number of those h2b visas issued by 45 percent.

He has decreased illegal immigration, I think, but only by talking a tough game. His victory can largely be attributed to American's frustrations with the status quo who are outsourcing us, importing poverty, and overall decreasing American's standard of living. I think Trump voters were hoping to see a reversal of that, but no. All we got was tough talk, and more war spending.

That map you posted represent nothing pertaining to the reality of the electoral college and how people voted. There is an enormous racial division in this country and it will only get worse as democrats lose their strategy with the browning america and replacing whites with immigrants

Illegal immigration is down 67% since President Trumpís Inauguration.

low gas prices.

In President Trumpís first six months since the election and since his inauguration the US Stock Markets are at record highs and millions of Americans are benefitting in their retirement savings accounts.

US Debt has decreased under President Trump since his inauguration by (-$103) Billion.

President Trump added a projected 1,027,000 jobs in his first six months (January through June 2017.) President Obama on the other hand lost more than 3,826,000 million jobs in his first six months.

Also according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics President Trump decreased unemployment every month since his inauguration (January through May 2017.)
Housing Sales

Housing sales are red-hot in the US right now. In 2011, houses for sale were on the market an average 84 days.

The US Manufacturing Index soared to a 33 year high in February 2017 shortly after President Trump was sworn into office. The index reached 43 in February which was the best outlook since 1983 under President Reagan.

In Obamaís first five months in office (January through May of 2009) the best manufacturing index activity rating was a negative -22.

Donald Trump's electoral victory was not a landslide. Not in the slightest. Both of Obama's elections were won by a greater margin, and neither of those should be considered a landslide either.

Granted, landslide isn't necessarily an exactly defined term. But Trump won 56% of the electoral vote and I'm fairly certain "just over half" isn't really the point where we decide it's a landslide.

I wouldn't go any lower than 80% to qualify as a landslide. Trump's actually victory was largely unimpressive.

Ok, and 73.4% DID NOT vote for Hillary.

There's another landslide.

Electoral college counts.

Trump won that in a LAND! SLIDE! Over 300.

How you like them apples?

Half of eligible voters didn't vote. You forgot to add that in to your little number up there.
Then you have the people who voted Stein or whatshishead. You forgot to add that in to your little number up there.

Hillary got .6% votes more than Trump in the popular vote. POINT 6. Not even a full percent. And popular vote doesn't mean jack spit. The rest of the country doesn't care what CA thinks.

And that is why every day you have your new, wonderful president, President Donald J. Trump leading the way. Enjoy!

It is this arrogant, snotty attitude that is going to see the Dems lose again in 2018 and 2020.
