Still counting . . .

An update on the issue I raised here and here: The U.S. presidential vote is still being counted. As of December 6, Hillary Clinton leads by 2.6 million votes, which is 2 percent of the total. Donald Trump's share is 46.2 percent.

Kevin Drum notes, "Aside from the obviously corrupt election of 1876, no winning candidate in the two-party era has ever done even remotely as dismally in the popular vote as Donald Trump."

And remember too that Trump's self-proclaimed Electoral College "landslide" was not. Trump’s margin of victory ranked 46th out of 58 U.S. presidential elections.
