She lost the Presidency, but.?..

The popular. vote is irrelevant to the more important issue
of the requirements of the Electoral College, but she did receive
more votes than The Donald, which, like it or not, means
that more voters chose her than chose him. That is no small
thing. As Joe Scarborough said this morning, the Republicans
have a lot to worry about. They have lost the popular vote in six
of the last seven Presidential elections.

Only George Bush 43, won the popular vote in 2004.

Weiche, Wotan, Weiche!
