Quick, pop quiz! Who won the majority vote in the 2016 presidential election?
See, I can read your mind. Just because you say something — again and again and again — doesn’t mean it’s true. That’s what is known among mental health professionals as “magical thinking,” and it’s not healthy.
In this case, it’s the incessant whining of Democrats and liberal media howling that former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton won the 2016 presidential election majority vote. Um, no, she didn’t, according to Townhall — and common sense.
For those who skipped both math and logic class, let’s break it down one more time.
First, Hillary Clinton didn’t win a majority of the vote. A majority is anything over 50 percent. With each candidate receiving just less than 50 percent, Clinton won a plurality with a razor-thin margin.
Did Hillary Clinton receive more of the vote than Donald Trump? Absolutely, according to The New York Times. Does that matter? Absolutely not. While ABC and the rest of the liberal media are losing their cookies over this, let’s move to our next point.
Second, the popular vote is largely irrelevant. The Electoral College exists to protect heavily skewed states (such as the liberal coasts where herd mentality rules and Clinton’s margins were higher) from hijacking the election. The Electoral College ensures that ALL of the people are represented fairly and proportionately.
Do try to keep up, libs, for heaven’s sake.
Third, Trump DID win a majority of the states, something the liberal myth-peddlers regularly fail to mention. With a GOP Congress, a majority of state legislatures, a majority of governors, and nationwide the largest number of elected offices in the party’s history, Republicans do have a mandate to set this country back on track.
Fourth, the majority of Americans DO have an opinion about Hillary Clinton. They believe she is a liar, dishonest and untrustworthy. That’s why they didn’t elect her.
So while the mainstream media continue to blow hot, stale air about more than half the country voting for Hillary, that’s a flat-out lie. Somebody needs to pop that balloon.
