Hillary wins the popular vote – not

Blog: Hillary wins the popular vote – not:
"Okay, let’s address this “Hillary might win the popular vote, isn’t that Electoral College situation just awful” thing head on.
No, it’s not awful.
It’s great, and it protects the importance of your vote.
It’s also uniquely American and demonstrates yet again the once-in-creation brilliance of the Founding Fathers.
First of all, she’s probably not going to win the actual number of votes cast.
She may win the number of votes counted, but not the votes cast.
States don’t count their absentee ballots unless the number of outstanding absentee ballots is larger than the state margin of difference.
If there is a margin of 1,000 votes counted and there are 1,300 absentee ballots outstanding, then the state tabulates those.
If the number of outstanding absentee ballots wouldn’t influence the election results, then the absentee ballots aren’t counted.
Who votes by absentee ballot?
Students overseas, the military, businesspeople on trips, etc.
The historical breakout for absentee ballots is about 67-33% Republican.
In 2000, when Al Gore “won” the popular vote nationally by 500,000 votes and the liberal media screamed bloody murder, there were 2 million absentee ballots in California alone..."

Maybe...Maybe not.

Without the late-in-the-race FBI announcements, Hillary takes FL, MI, NH, PA and WI and is the President with 307 EV.

The GOP took power on the basis of a dirty trick.

Trump had been surging and was tied in the polls with Hillary before the FBI announcement. They bith were leap frogging one another throughout the election. Face jt you lost due to Obama's numerous faikures. 70% of the country believed we were going in the wrong direction. Hillary was more if the same.

Hillary shoumd be kissing Comey's ass for letting the DOJ pressure him into standing down AGAIN. It's the only reason Hilary isnt in jail. She destroyes evidence (e maiks and devices) AFTER she gkt a subpoena. Illegal! She ket her maid print out CLASSIFIED material and oaid for her daughters wedding with her foundations mjneh. Illegal! Her foundation is still under FBI investigation.
