Donald Trump may have won the Electoral College, and will be inaugurate on January 20, 2017, as our 45th President.
But he will be inaugurated knowing that he is the most unpopular Presidential winner in American history!
It looks as if Hillary Clinton will have won the widest popular vote victory of the five Democrats who have lost the Electoral College.
Andrew Jackson had a 45,000 vote edge over John Quincy Adams in 1824.
Grover Cleveland had a 100,000 vote edge over Benjamin Harrison in 1888.
Samuel Tilden had a 250,000 vote lead over Rutherford B. Hayes in 1876.
Al Gore had a 540,000 vote lead over George W. Bush in 2000.
But now in 2016, Hillary Clinton has a constantly mounting popular vote lead over Donald Trump of at least 672,000 votes, and it is thought when all votes are counted, including absentee, overseas, and mail ballots not yet counted, and many of them coming from California and Washington State and even New York, that the margin could reach 2 million!
Trump already was the most unpopular Presidential winner in public opinion polls, with 60 percent not endorsing him, and yet he won the right combination of states to win the Electoral College.
