It’s been fun, this past week, watching the media and pollsters have to reel in and apologize for their predictions of Hillary’s shoe-in victory.
Their prognosticating was for naught and planned victory celebrations turned into moaning sessions because the real winner turned out to be the very guy they all hate, Donald Trump.
And their complaining, which was once funny, too, has become flat out annoying, because they will not concede! In fact, liberals starting petitioning to request the electoral college ignore the election’s outcome and make Hillary Clinton president based upon the mistaken premise that she won the popular vote.
According to American Thinker:
First of all, she’s probably not going to win the actual number of votes cast. She may win the number of votes counted, but not the votes cast.
States don’t count their absentee ballots unless the number of outstanding absentee ballots is larger than the state margin of difference. If there is a margin of 1,000 votes counted and there are 1,300 absentee ballots outstanding, then the state tabulates those. If the number of outstanding absentee ballots wouldn’t influence the election results, then the absentee ballots aren’t counted.
Who votes by absentee ballot? Students overseas, the military, business people on trips, etc. The historical breakout for absentee ballots is about 67-33% Republican. In 2000, when Al Gore “won” the popular vote nationally by 500,000 votes and the liberal media screamed bloody murder, there were 2 million absentee ballots in California alone. A 67-33 breakout of those yields a 1.33 to 0.66 million Republican vote advantage, so Bush would have gotten a 667,000-vote margin from California’s uncounted absentee ballots alone! So much for Gore’s 500,000 popular vote “victory.” (That was the headline on the N.Y. Times, and it was the lead story on NBC Nightly News, right? No? You’re kidding.)
The liberals just cannot conceive of the possibility that Hillary lost, so they are revolting against the system they all would have supported had Hillary won.
There are no do-overs in this game, millennials.
