Damon, Hillary won the popular vote. Through fair and square elections. There's no reason for hate -- from either side.
That popular vote margin was a bit skewed, though. New York and California gave her a 4 million+ popular vote margin, but her national margin was only 337,636.
We will never know if Hillary actually won the popular vote because many absentee ballots are never counted.

That was an interesting blog post. Thanks for posting.
So he knows state laws in all 50 states about counting absentee ballots? Interesting. And doubtful.
I think the confusion is coming from the difference between provisional ballots, and absentee. The former are the ones not counted unless the election is close. The latter must be counted.
