Dave Wasserman of the Cook Political Report and Fivethiryeight reports that Hillary Clinton's lead in the popular vote has reached 2.0%:
Clinton is also closing in on Obama's raw vote total from 2012:
You can watch the ongoing vote total for yourself in Wasserman's detailed spreadsheet. There might be another million votes left to count. Her final lead over Trump will be very close to Bush’s over Kerry in 2004 (3.012 million).
That's not all. According to the United States Election Project, turnout as a percentage of the voting eligible population is now likely to reach at least 59.1%. This makes turnout in 2016 higher than 2012, and the third-highest turnout election since 18 year-olds were given the right to vote via the 26th amendment before the 1972 elections. (The top two elections of the post-1972 era were 2004 with 60.1%, and 2008 with 61.6%).
Hillary Clinton received millions more votes than Donald Trump in a high turnout election. It is an undemocratic disgrace she will not be our next President. If our laws allow for this result, then our laws say that our votes are not all equal.
Sign if you agree: Elect the President of the United States by national popular vote. The person who gets the most votes should win.
