About Hillary Clinton's Popular Vote Win

We are reminded incessantly by Hillary Clinton, the Democratic National Committee, and their obedient servants in the "Main Stream Media" that Hillary Clinton won the popular vote.

If we assume that big city Democrat politicians have changed their ways, that no dead people cast ballots, and that illegal immigrants were turned away from the polls, she sure did. 

Here are the official final popular vote totals for the nation in the U.S. Presidential Election of 2016:
Hillary ClintonDonald Trump
U.S. Popular Vote Totals   65,844,610  62,979,636

As you can see, Hillary Clinton did defeat Donald Trump in the national popular vote totals by 2,864,974 votes. The problem is that Hillary's entire national popular vote margin exists because of the size of her popular vote in just one state: California.

A group of disgruntled anti-Trump Californians has launched a petition drive for the purpose of achieving California's secession from the United States. It is interesting to consider what the result of last November's popular vote would have been had that state already left the union.

Hillary ClintonDonald Trump
U.S. Popular Vote Totals (without California)   58,482,120  59,063,427

So without California, Donald Trump wins a national popular vote majority of 581,307 votes. In fact, except for the votes in just 12 of 58 California counties (Los Angeles, Alameda, Santa Clara, Contra Costa, San Mateo, Sacramento, Orange, Sonoma, Marin, Santa Cruz, Ventura, and Solano) Trump would have carried California as well.

Do you think that 12 Caifornia counties should elect the President of the United States? I don't. It reduces to this. Hillary Clinton won the popular vote in and therefore deserves to be President of Southern California. The rest of the country? Not so much.
