This is flame suit country....

They don't confirm the popular vote until at least Monday...

I wonder what'll happen if he wins it.

No more tears, lol.

Popular vote means NOTHING as the campaigns strategized and invested to win electoral votes rather than the popular vote.

If popular vote meant anything trump would have invested the majority of his campaign resources in NY, California and Texas.

Trump did not even bother with NY and California which have the biggest populations by far and barely campaigned in Texas which is the biggest GOP stronghold state.

In the very narrow definition of who won the White House, you are correct.

The Republicans have a lot to deliver to the 'Torches and Pitchforks' crowd in the next two years. People on both ends of the spectrum are not happy with politics as usual.

With their control of the Senate, House and Supreme Court it is very doable.

We are not the 'torch and pitchfork' crowd. That is how the leftist 'intellectual' elites characterized Trump supporters ... uneducated white red-necks. My friends, lawyers and physicians, almost to a person, supported Trump.

If popular vote were to determine the President, we wouldn't need anything more than the votes from California, Illinois, Washington, Oregon and New York. Ours is a federal system, which assures the smaller states don't get washed out by the huge population centers.

One thing I noticed is that every single small business owner I talked to supported Trump and their decision wasn't close in that regard.

Right BJ
Small businesses are the job creating engine for our country. Obama Care crushes small business and disincentivizes hiring more than 49 employees. Limits growth, strangles job creation, and impoverishes workers.

My point was that if he wins both the popular and the electoral college votes this last 5 days (and nights) of protest will have been for nothing.
Pretty silly protest anyway,IMO.

But not even in the same realm of silly as the election.
