Hillary Clinton’s popular vote lead is now over two million votes. That is INCREDIBLE.
As additional votes have been counted on the West Coast, Hillary’s national popular-vote lead over Donald Trump now exceeds 2 million votes, according to an ongoing tally by the Cook Political Report’s David Wasserman.
Hillary Clinton’s vote total is 64,223,986 (48.1% of the vote), while Trump’s is 62,206,395 (46.6%) – a difference of 2,017,591 votes (1.5%).
To put that popular-vote margin into perspective, Al Gore’s popular-vote lead over George W. Bush in 2000 – when Bush won the Electoral College – was 547,000 votes. Also noteworthy: Clinton’s 64-plus million votes is nearing in on the 65.9 million Barack Obama won in 2012.
And considering the calls for a recount in Michigan, Wisconsin and Pennsylvania…there is hope. Small hope…but it is there!!
