It’s been nearly two weeks since Election Day, and even though Hillary Clinton lost the Electoral College, it appears that her popular vote count considerably exceeds that of President-elect Donald Trump.
As the dust settles, it would appear that Trump will walk away with 306 electoral votes compared to Clinton’s 232. According to the latest numbers, however, Trump received 61,820,845 votes in total, while Clinton has 63,390,669 votes to her name.
The voter difference comes out to 1,569,824, and ABC approximated that the 2016 voter breakdown was technically 48% for Clinton, and 47% for Trump.
Trump critics have been angered by the election results, which have manifested in protests and calls for legislation to do away with the Electoral College. Concerned Americans have also backed a petition asking the Electoral College to take heed of the popular vote, and give the presidency to Clinton instead of Trump.
