Trump had less votes than McCain in 2008 and Romny in 2012, the problem is that Clinton had a lot less votes than Obama in 2008 and 2012.  If more people had voted she would have won.  She won the popular vote but the electoral college gave the election to Trump.  

Among liberals, one of the most popular explanations for Donald Trump's victory is that it was a "whitelash," a primal scream of lost influence and latent racism among white voters. I myself certainly talked about racial animus quite a bit during the runup to the election. However, in the spirit of figuring out where we were wrong, the actual voting patterns suggest this is flat wrong. Here is Trump's share of the vote compared to Romney in 2012:

Whites voted less for Trump than for Romney, while both blacks and Latinos voted more for Trump.1 There's nothing here that suggests Trump appealed to white backlash in any special way

The mind of an infant?
Like many who voted for him. Religions do that to people.

I'm still too shocked, too outraged, too boggled, too stunned, toooooooo everything to even feel bad for the people who tried so hard for a different outcome. I am not yet to even shedding a tear stage.

Comment by Stephen on November 9, 2016 at 7:49pm

I think I remember that, but lets face who in their right mind imagined he would win. I still cant believe it. Most politicians are idiots but many UK politicians are coming out and calling him a spoiled brat of a child.

I can't find the page as it was too many months ago............

I've read from many sites that he's a spoiled, narcissistic little boy in adult clothing.

I thought he'd lose too, but Neal said he'd NEVER win the white house.

Comment by Stephen on November 9, 2016 at 7:35pm

I just couldn't imagine anyone wanting to vote for such an idiot. Like Sam Harris said Trump had the mind of an infant.

Comment by Stephen on November 9, 2016 at 7:33pm

Lets face it Mrs.B. most people thought that Trump was going to lose.

I know I did.
