We here at Rancho LawDog are seeing a whole bunch of fluster in the air regarding Secretary Clinton "winning the popular vote."
Leaving aside for the nonce the uncomfortable fact that there is no such thing as a popular vote for the Office of President of the United States (yet another sin that the Mainstream Media will have to answer for) near as I can tell -- if we had been foolish enough to do so -- had there been a Popular Vote the winner would have been "None of the Above".
According to data from the United States Election Project, there are just over 231,000,000 (231 million) eligible voters in the United States at the time of this cycle's General Election.
Secretary Clinton got (so far) ~ 66,000,000 (66 million +/-) of those eligible voters.
Mr Trump got (so far) ~ 63,000,000 (63 million +/-) of those eligible voters.
Let us add 66 million to 63 million -- if my math skills are up to scratch -- about 129,000,000 (129 million) votes.
231,000,000 (total eligible voters) minus 129,000,000 (eligible voters participating) -- leaves 102,000,000 (102 million) eligible voters who sat at home, muttering into their beers on Election Day.
In other words, it sure looks like the Presidential picks were so dismal this year that 45% of the electorate couldn't get enthused enough to cast a vote.
To quote Herself: "So, she got about half of the half that showed up?"
It actually cyphers out to Secretary Clinton getting 48% of the 55% that showed up, but close enough.
Hillary Clinton didn't win the popular vote.
"Bugger This For A Lark" and "None Of The Above" won the popular vote with a total of 102 million to Secretary Clinton's 66 million -- almost half again as many votes.
A cheeky young bugger has pointed out that it could be said that "Noah Ward" was actually the winner of the popular vote.
