As of right now the popular vote is showing Clinton with approx. 2M more votes than Trump, but should we weigh in Stein and Johnson's votes as well? By pure popular vote numbers, conservative candidates got more votes than democrat candidates. By a margin of about 2M votes when you combine Johnson and Trump. Clinton got more votes than any other individual, sure, but if we look at the popular vote by ideology, the conservatives clearly came out ahead. Is the media failing to point this out, or does it just not matter because "Clinton Wins Popular Vote" is a better headline for controversy and sensationalism? Would people be more accepting of the outcome if they were aware that more conservative votes were cast than democrat votes?
Another observation, and this one is a bit more concerning, but do the people pushing for Hillary to call for recounts really want to open up that can of worms considering the number of alleged illegal immigrants and dead people who fraudulently voted for her. If she goes up against Trump on this she's just going to come out looking like more of a crook even if she wins. My opinion is to let it rest. Trump has put forth a seemingly sane and viable plan, he's soft on many of the social issues we're all concerned about, and he's appearing to try to work with everyone and he's even bringing in dems as insiders. Can't we just give the old orange dude a chance before we go and rehash the election? What's your opinion?
