Hillary Clinton’s lead in the popular vote over President-elect Donald Trump has surpassed 1 million, according to Dave Wasserman of the nonpartisan Cook Political Report.
Her supporters cling to hope that the Electoral College will elect CLinton president on Dec. 19.
A Change.org petition protesting the Electoral College has received more than 4.3 million signatures. Clinton’s supporters point out that her popular vote margin over Trump is now bigger than Al Gore, Richard Nixon and John F. Kennedy’s popular vote leads in their elections.
New Yorker magazine writer Jelani Cobb tweeted: “Both Bill Clinton’s Vice President and his wife have won the popular vote without winning the Presidency”.
