Final  numbers

: 62,972,226 : 62,277,750

 vote  306  232

To all the liberal loonies still rioting because you claim Trump did not get the popular vote, get your meds now and prepare to be shocked because the finals results are in. Trump got 306 Electoral College vote while Hillary Clinton got 232. For : 62,972,226 : 62,277,750

Go see your therapists now – or maybe do a 24/7 yoga until you recover from this shock.

Tonight Michigan was finally called for Donald Trump moving his Electoral College (EC) count up to 306 total to Hillary Clinton’s 232.  (Although Google will still not report it like other media institutions.)

…media is also hiding from you that Trump CRUSHED Hillary in the Electoral College (EC). As of today, most if not all media outlets show that Trump won the election with only 279 EC votes. But the truth is Trump also won Michigan with 16 EC votes and Arizona with 11 EC votes for a total of 306 EC votes. Hillary only won 228 EC votes but it looks like she barely won New Hampshire which should put her at 232 EC votes. As a result, Trump won 57% of all EC votes. Gateway Pundit

      Just in, drum circles don’t work.

    • Spikey Norman

      All those dead people that voted for Hillary will be spinning in their graves.

    • Andy

      gotta love this – even with all their vote rigging, Killary LOST the popular vote by nearly 700,000 votes

      • Me

        Where are you getting that? From the numbers on this page, Hillary won the popular vote by 424,623. Not that it matters, she still lost the electoral college.

        • caribbean critic

          take out the illegals that voted the dead that voted the flipped electronic votes and trump won the popular vote by at least 4 million

      • Me

        Whoops, my bad, you’re correct.

    • haha

      ha ha ha ha! You political sleepers are pathetic now. You wanna pick on me?!? Well… Take this you bunch of punks!!!!!!

      Trump wins! Flawless victory!…. Fatality!

    • wiseoldlady

      Yes, the dead, the hidden boxes of pro-Hillary ballots full of 10s of thousands of ballots, the torn up Trump ballots, fraudulent machines, and all the illegal aliens votes were not enough…. If the truth was known only about 17K voted for her…only God knows.

      • wiseoldlady

        oops….17M not K

    • Anonymous

      Hers a total lie as she had busses driving from poll to poll, election staff stuffing ballot boxes and stole at least 5 states….

      That’s why polling places stalled releasing results.

      Trump ran an honest campaign. Clintasaurus lied, cheated and stole her votes without any integrity and disgraced even Donald Duck…

    • Spikey Norman

      The Donald may just decide to restore integrity and complete transparency to the next election.

      Maybe voter I.D. + the blue finger + scrutiny of ballot boxes both by video surveillance, and designated human observers from each of the major parties.

      Nothing wrong with initially machine counting the votes for a quick accurate result on election day, but hut backed up by carefully scrutinised human counting. Its does not have to be difficult or complicated.

      The Electoral college is a bit of a strange issue, is it really needed at all ?

    • Wynter Silvermoon

      WRONG! Hillary did not win the popular vote. This site has the real numbers.

    • Daffers

      Wouldn’t it be great if these results stopped all the rioters in their tracks – but I guess Soros is paying them too much money! WAY TO GO PRESIDENT TRUMP – :grin:

    • Leo

      Love those numbers :cool:

      “media is also hiding from you that Trump CRUSHED Hillary in the Electoral College”

      Strange, since the electoral college hasnt voted yet.

      • LifeIs

        Um. You realize the electors are representing their political party, are chosen by their party, and are pledged to their candidate, right?

        And almost every one of them wants to vote for their party’s candidate.

        And in about half the states, they are legally required to vote for their candidate.

        You might think the fine, for not voting as pledged, is too small to stop them from voting for the opposition. But that brings up the 12th amendment. CONGRESS counts the votes January 6th.

        The NEW Congress, which will have been sworn in already. The REPUBLICAN House and Senate.

        And why would they count and certify the votes of “faithless electors,” when those votes were cast in violation of state laws?

        They wouldn’t.

        Especially if that would mean putting someone in office who would need to be impeached and removed, anyway. Which Clinton would.

        So, yeah, the electoral vote has been decided already. The election is over.

        • Air Quotes Shill Air Quotes

          I’m a firm believer that the election is always rigged, and the person TPTB want in office, always ends up in office.

          So sure, its over, I think were just as doomed with Hitlery as we are with Stump.

          There have been 157 faithless votes cast in the electoral vote. 71 due to the death of a candidate, but 82 done for personal or political reasons.

          2004 – Anonymous (Democrat, Minnesota)
          An unknown elector from Minnesota, pledged to vote for Democrat John Kerry, cast a presidential vote instead for Kerry’s running mate John Edwards (the elector also cast his or her vice presidential vote for Edwards). One Minnesota elector, who believed the Edwards vote must have been a mistake, said, “I’m certainly glad the Electoral College isn’t separated by one vote.”

          2000 – Barbara Lett-Simmons (Democrat, District of Columbia)
          Barbara Lett-Simmons, a Democratic elector from the District of Columbia, did not cast her vote in order to protest the lack of congressional representation for Washington, DC. Lett-Simmons was the first elector to abstain from voting since 1832. Her abstention did not affect the outcome of the election.

          1988 – Margaret Leach (Democrat, West Virginia)
          Margaret Leach, a nurse from Huntington, WV, was pledged to the Democratic Party. During the Electoral College process, Leach learned that members of the Electoral College were not required to vote for the candidates to whom they were pledged, whereupon she decided to draw more attention to the situation by switching her votes for president and vice president. She cast her presidential vote for Lloyd Bentsen, the Democratic Vice Presidential candidate, and cast her vice presidential vote for Michael Dukakis, the Democratic presidential candidate.

          Leach tried to get other electors to join her, but hers remained the only unexpected vote.

          1976 – Mike Padden (Republican, Washington)
          Mike Padden, a lawyer from Spokane, WA, was pledged to vote for Gerald Ford, the 1976 Republican candidate for president. Instead Padden voted for Ronald Reagan, who had run in the Republican primary and lost. For vice president he voted for Robert Dole, Gerald Ford’s running mate.

          1972 – Roger L. MacBride (Republican, Virginia)
          Roger L. MacBride was pledged to the Republican party of Virginia. However, in the 1972 election, MacBride did not cast his electoral vote for Richard Nixon, the Republican presidential candidate, but for John Hospers, the Libertarian presidential candidate.

          He also cast his vice presidential vote for Toni Nathan, the Libertarian vice presidential candidate, (making Nathan the first woman to receive an electoral vote). MacBride ran as the Libertarian candidate for president in the next election but did not receive any electoral votes.

          1968 – Dr. Lloyd W. Bailey (Republican, North Carolina)
          Dr. Lloyd W. Bailey was an elector for the Republican Party of North Carolina. He did not vote for Richard Nixon however, but for George Wallace, the presidential candidate for the American Independence Party. (Wallace received a total of 46 electoral votes).

          Bailey claimed that Nixon had done some things that displeased him (like appointing Henry Kissinger and Daniel Moynihan) and so he decided not to vote for him. He also protested that he had never signed a pledge promising to vote for any particular candidate and that his vote for Wallace was justified because Wallace was the winner in Bailey’s district.

          Bailey later admitted at a Senate hearing that he would have voted for Richard Nixon if his vote would have altered the outcome of the election.

          1960 – Henry D. Irwin (Republican, Oklahoma)
          Henry D. Irwin, a Republican elector from Oklahoma, was originally pledged to Richard Nixon. Irwin later admitted in an interview with CBS that he “could not stomach” Nixon. He tried to convince the Democratic and Republican electors to reject both Kennedy and Nixon as presidential candidates. His choice replacement was a combination of two conservative senators: Harry F. Byrd of Virginia and Barry Goldwater of Arizona. In fact, he sent out telegrams to the other electors.

          One telegram sent to the 218 Republican electors read:

          “I am Oklahoma Republican elector. The Republican electors cannot deny the election to Kennedy. Sufficient conservative Democratic electors available to deny labor Socialist nominee. Would you consider Byrd President, Goldwater Vice President, or wire any acceptable substitute. All replies strict confidence.”

          Irwin received several replies (about 40) from other electors but he was the only one to vote against his designated party. He cast his electoral votes for Byrd and Goldwater.

          In the same election 14 unpledged electors (eight from Mississippi and six from Alabama) cast their presidential votes for Harry Byrd. All 14 also voted for Senator Strom Thurmond of South Carolina as vice president.

          1956 – W. F. Turner (Democrat, Alabama)
          W.F. Turner, a Democratic elector from Alabama, voted for Walter Burgwyn Jones instead of the Democratic candidate Adlai Stevenson. Jones was formerly a circuit court judge from Turner’s hometown.

          1948 – Preston Parks (Democrat, Tennessee)
          Preston Parks was a member of Tennessee’s Democratic Party. He was appointed as one of their state electors early in the election year. Before the election, members of the Democratic Party split off and formed the States Rights party.

          Parks vowed before the election to vote for Senator Strom Thurmond, the States Rights Party candidate instead of Harry Truman. Another elector also made the same pledge but ended up voting for Truman.

          Thurmond, who gathered less than 3% of the popular vote, received a total of 39 electoral votes. These votes came from Louisiana, Alabama, Mississippi, and South Carolina.

          1912 – Eight Republican Electors
          In 1912, Republican Vice Presidential candidate James S. Sherman died before the election. He was President William Howard Taft’s vice president and they were both running for re-election.

          Eight Republican electors had pledged their votes to him but voted for Nicholas Murray Butler instead.

          1896 – Four People’s Party Electors
          In 1896, two parties, the Democratic Party and the People’s Party, ran William Jennings Bryan as their presidential candidate. The two parties, though they shared a presidential candidate, nominated different candidates for vice president. The Democratic Party nominated Arthur Sewall and the People’s Party nominated Thomas Watson.

          The People’s Party won 31 electoral votes but four of those electors voted with the Democratic ticket, supporting Bryan as president and Sewall as vice president.

          1872 – Sixty-three Democratic Electors
          The Democratic Party nominated Horace Greeley for President in 1872. However, Greeley died after the November election but before the Electoral College had cast their votes. 63 of the 66 Democratic Electors refused to give their votes to a deceased candidate. 17 of these 63 Electors abstained from voting. The other 43 Electors split their votes among three other Democratic candidates.

          1836 – Twenty-three Democratic Electors
          The Democratic Party nominated Richard M. Johnson of Kentucky as their vice presidential candidate. The 23 electors from Virginia refused to support Johnson with their votes upon learning of the allegation that he had lived with an African American woman.

          With these 23 votes missing, there was no majority in the Electoral College and the decision was deferred to the Senate. In the end, the Senate voted for Johnson as the vice president.

          1832 – Thirty-two Democratic Electors (Pennsylvania, Maryland)
          Two National Republican Party electors from the state of Maryland refused to vote for presidential candidate Henry Clay, not voting against Clay but abstaining completely.

          In the same year, all 30 electors from Pennsylvania refused to support the Democratic vice presidential candidate, Martin Van Buren, voting instead for William Wilkins.

          Despite the loss of the 30 votes from Pennsylvania, Martin Van Buren was elected as the vice president. Andrew Jackson was elected as the president, receiving over 75% of the electoral votes.

          1828 – Seven Democratic Electors (Georgia)
          In this election, seven out of the nine electors from Georgia refused to vote for vice presidential candidate John Calhoun. All seven cast their vice presidential votes for William Smith instead. Andrew Jackson won his re-election, with John Calhoun as his vice president.

          1820 – William Plummer, Sr. (Democratic-Republican, New Hampshire)
          William Plummer, Sr. was pledged to vote for Democratic-Republican candidate James Monroe. Instead, he cast his vote for John Quincy Adams, also of the Democratic-Republican Party, although Adams was not a candidate in the 1820 election.

          Supposedly, Plummer did not feel that the Electoral College should unanimously elect any president other than George Washington.

          Other than three electors who did not cast votes, Plummer’s vote for Adams was the only vote not cast for Monroe.

          1812 – Three Federalist Electors
          Three electors of the Federalist Party refused to cast their votes for Federalist vice presidential candidate Jared Ingersoll. All three voted instead for Elbridge Gerry, the vice presidential candidate for the Democratic-Republican Party.

          1808 – Six Democratic-Republican Electors
          Six electors from the Democratic-Republican Party refused to support James Madison, their party’s candidate for president. Instead, all three voted for George Clinton, the Democratic-Republican Party’s vice presidential candidate, for president.

          1796 – Samuel Miles (Federalist, Pennsylvania)
          Samuel Miles, of Pennsylvania, was the first elector to break a pledge to vote for a specific candidate. Miles had promised to vote for Federalist candidate John Adams, but instead cast a ballot for Democratic-Republican Thomas Jefferson.

          While Miles did not affect the outcome of the election—Jefferson still lost by three electoral votes—his decision still earns him a dubious spot in the history votes, and the ire of many Pennsylvanians as the following letter, published in the Gazette of the United States, attests: “What, do I choose Samuel Miles to determine for me whether John Adams or Thomas Jefferson shall be president? No! I choose him to act, not to think.”

          So yeah, its over, and I really couldn’t care less. I’m here mainly to ruffle the feathers of anyone who thinks either candidate would be better, when history clearly teaches us that once in power, almost everything they claim tends to go out the window.
