The 2016 election was a test, and it would be easy to assume that since Donald Trump won the election that America passed the test. Unfortunately, it may not be that simple. A closer look at the numbers reveals a very sobering reality. Yes, Donald Trump won far more electoral votes than Hillary Clinton did, and that means that he is on track to become our next president. But Hillary Clinton is going to win the popular vote, and it is likely to be by a very wide margin once all the votes are counted.
As I write this article, Hillary Clinton has a lead of 218,000 in the popular vote, but most of the votes that have not been counted are on the west coast.
In California, Hillary Clinton is leading Donald Trump by a 5,482,166 to 2,966,654 margin, and only 68 percent of the vote has been counted so far. So assuming that the ratio stays about the same the rest of the way, Clinton is going to add at least a million more votes to her lead just from the state of California.
Up in Washington state, Hillary Clinton is leading Donald Trump by more than 370,000 votes, and only 60 percent of the vote has been counted there so far. So she could easily pick up another 200,000 votes in that state.
When everything is all said and done, it seems very likely that Hillary Clinton will have received well over a million more votes than Donald Trump did in this election.
So the truth is that the American people chose Hillary Clinton, but because of some electoral college magic Donald Trump is the winner of the election.
And I am certainly very, very happy that Hillary Clinton is not going to be our next president. Four years under her “leadership” would have likely been the final nail in the coffin for our nation. My hope is that she will now disappear from national politics for good.
But just because she is not going to be our next president does not mean that we passed the test.
In this election, the American people were faced with a very stark choice. Hillary Clinton is the most wicked politician that our country has ever seen, and over the past three decades the American people have gotten to know exactly who she is and what she stands for.
And despite knowing exactly what they would be getting, more Americans voted for her than voted for Donald Trump.
If every vote counted equally, she would be our next president.
I certainly don’t mean to rain on the Trump parade. Christians, conservatives and patriots are right to celebrate this victory by Donald Trump. But the truth is that I don’t believe that we did actually pass the test that we were faced with.
As a nation, we willingly chose Hillary Clinton by a pretty substantial margin.
And don’t think that the radical left is going to forget that Trump lost the popular vote. Already, violence and protests have erupted all over the nation.
Shortly after Trump declared victory, riots broke out in Berkeley, San Jose and Oakland…
“Not my president! Not my president!” chanted anti-Trump rioters in Berkley, California as they light flares and storm the streets.
Riots erupted in Berkley, San Jose and Oakland shortly after the announcement of Donald Trump as president-elect. Rioters are breaking into stores, vandalizing cars and shooting flares.
One woman in Oakland was hit by a car on Highway 24 just after midnight and has suffered serious injuries after. When she pulled over to the right shoulder, she was surrounded by anti-Trump rioters, who vandalized her car and broke the back window, according to CHP officers.
There were reports of protesters burning American flags in some areas of the country, and there were even brawls outside of the White House.
And once the sun set on Wednesday night, the protests started again. According to USA Today, “thousands of demonstrators” have hit the streets in New York City…
In New York, thousands of demonstrators blocked off streets around Trump Tower near the busy intersection of 57th Street and Fifth Avenue, chanting “hey hey, ho ho, Donald Trump has got to go” and “p—y grabs back,” a reference to tape of a Trump conversation from years back in which he One woman protester was topless while another climbed on top of a tree to see the activity. Taxis, city buses and passenger vehicles stood at a standstill.
In Boston, radical leftists were organizing a giant protest against Trump…
Far-left organizers are planning a mass protest in Boston against President-elect Donald Trump, citing the need to “immediately start fighting against him.”
Approximately 2,300 people have indicated they will gather outside the Massachusetts State House in Boston tonight for a “Boston Against Trump Rally.” According to the Facebook event page, another 5,000 people say they may be interested in attending.
“Donald Trump is the next President of the United States. We need to immediately start fighting against him. We need to build a movement to fight racism, sexism, and Islamophobia,” the event description says.
Sadly, this could be the beginning of a new era of protests, rioting and civil unrest.
Instead of coming together behind the new president, the radical left seems ready to go to war.
So even though Trump won the election, the truth is that our troubles may only just be starting. More than half the country didn’t want Trump, our nation was already more divided than it has been in decades before he won, and it won’t take much for many of our big cities to descend into utter chaos.
Without a doubt, we should be very excited that Donald Trump won the election, but an election victory is not going to magically make our problems go away.
When faced with the most monumental election in any of our lifetimes, Hillary Clinton received the most votes from the American people, and the consequences for that decision may be far more severe than most people are now anticipating.

She didn't win because of what she represented, corruption scandal and all of the perverse things you could imagine. She didn't connect with the people, minorities, and was just a plain fake. People did not see her as a leader. Her sheepoles can't believe it is possible, but it did happen, and it is her fault, not Comey's or Obama's for not stopping Comey, it was her indignant ways that prevented her from her coveted White House and coronation. You need to check your distorted numbers as I remember the numbers being different on election night.
We DON'T elect presidents based on popular votes, we elect on STATE BY STATE results JUST AS PRIMARY WINNERS ARE SELECTED. It makes NO difference of the margin in a state--for primary or national office winners since the STATES select their OWN winners and not a count of the whole country. Donald Trump won the MOST delegates in primaries by winning the MOST STATES. Again, in the presidential election he again WON THE MOST STATES--31 wins vs. only 19 wins for Hillary. WHY would we give Hillary the nomination when Trump clearly won MOST STATES, MOST ELECTORAL COLLEGE VOTES? Majority of voters in any specific state is 'icing on the cake' for THAT state but does NOT affect results from other states. Amazing after all these years, damn DemocRATS can't count Electoral votes!
The article does not take into account several aspects of a total count and only that of a Democrat leaning populist vote.The USA does not have a populist vote for President and has the Electoral Vote system. As such, the Trump campaign worked to win in the system in place and took the Electoral Vote system by a landslide margin to win.If it was only a total popular vote system, Trump would have ran his campaign in CA, NY, and other high population areas and not worked his rallys across the country for th Electoral Vote system.So you cannot say how the vote would have turned out if the campaign was run for a different system, like a popular vote. Trump had a movement never before seen in the USA and his rallys were filled with thousands of supporters. I believe if he would have ran his campaign for popular vote, he would have won it in a landslid as well.
New movement: "Trump-Voter Lives Matter". I do not see the mainstream media widely reporting on the incident(s) of people who voted for Trump being pulled from their vehicles, BEATEN on camera, and having things STOLEN from their vehicles. Does anyone think that Trump supporters would be doing this to people who voted for Clinton, if she had won? I think not, we are too busy WORKING for a living. I am very saddened by these people who think the government owes them a life.
This is exactly why the framers of our nation created a Rebublic, not a Democrocy. If you don't know the differance or the reason why I'm not going to tell you. You'll have to reseach it yourself because they don't teach it in our schools anymore. It's called the sin of ommision.
If we were a true democratic nation I would agree with the pretense of the article. However, the framers of our constitution understood the wisdom of an electorate, because it is not just about California, Oregon, New York and highly dense populated areas. It is about the whole nation. The Founding Fathers did not want a few states to wield the power of the federal government. Because, it could lead to mob rule. The Electoral College grants a balance of power across all of the states to allow each to be represented in their respect interests. The sad news is the evidence from the protesters own actions, that most either have not read the constitution or have no respect for it. That we have festered this disregard for our most precious civil document is the result, in large part, of Academia poisoning the well. And, we have by design or ignorance created a "Cupcake Generation" the profile of a spoiled child. Thank God for the Constitution of the United States. Even if the emotional hemophiliacs are throwing a temper tantrum, As a good parent, America has passed the test.
With 2,000,000 dead people on the voting rolls, 15,000,000 or more illegal aliens being encouraged to vote by Obama, and no voter ID being required in most of the country fraud voting is flourishing in the USA! At minimum 5,000,000 democrat votes are not legally valid votes.
So if Trump won the "popular" vote and Hillary won the Electoral College and the Trump voters hopefully (influenced by $$$$) demonstrated and (destroyed) property that would be okay ? Also how many of the voters (for Hillary) were actually citizens of the USA ?
WRONGS THING SHE DID WAS A BIG MISTAKE TO LET BE A CANDIDATE FOR UNITED STATES
What you say is not so. You are not taking into consideration that some states do not even count the mail notes from overseas unless there is a close result. This includes persons living overseas and our military, which is an extreme amount of votes. These usually break Republican You are also not taking into consideration all of the illegal votes. (Watch Project Veritas videos.). If all of this is taken into consideration, there. Would be a very different outcome.
