The Donald still doesn't have the electoral college votes. The US doesn't use the popular vote in its democratic presidential election. A candidate can get 60 percent or more of the popular vote and still lose.Nov 02nd, 2016 - 02:53 pm - Link - Report abuse +5

If Trump gets more votes nationally then he's likely to get enough swing states to win in the electoral college.

California has 39,144,800 citizens and 55 electoral votes - one for each 711,700 citizens.

Although George Wingnut Bush was more than half a million votes behind Al Gore in 2000 (50,456,002 against 50,999,897) the wingnut became the pres of the US.
If the worst happens, fortunately congress and senate have a say in most things.

James Comey - as flawed as he's been proven to be to date - is no lying, sneaking around in the dark, felonious coward like Mark Felt.
Hell, Snowden and Assange have more guts and infinitely more honor than Felt.
Anyone that thinks a Trump presidency would be painful should consider what an unending stream of special prosecutors, citizen FOIA lawsuits and congressional hearings dedicated to the persecution and expulsion of cliton inc. will be like.

Trump has a lot of powerful interests aligned against him:
The demos have just many issues with the left and those of colors.
50% increases in insurance premiums and the lack of economic growth and job creation are a pretty harsh indictment of the last 8 years.

- selling their images
- obey the wishes of the investors [ contributors / donors / endorsers /fund-raisers
- saying what their selected audience WANTS to hear [white lies]
- bring the gullible together to win the election [present/future]
THEY are not spending billions of USDs and countless numbers of hours just because they are feeling very patriotic! So which one of the con-artists do you trust [or trust more]; is the question. The other question is: If the president does not fulfill the promises which were made to win the votes in the first place; how easily can he/she/it be stripped off of power?
Power + Wealth [or Wealth + Power] go hand-in-hand and hand-in-glove with corruption [a Status Symbol in varying degrees and forms of it; in each country].
Perhaps many wouldn't agree but a 100% clean politician [&/or a political party; anywhere in the world] is a myth. So are the so-called investigations about corruption - when they are not superfluous; they are a one-sided farce.

”Donald Trump is closing his campaign strongly, staying on message and keeping his impulses in check as he rides cresting momentum into Election Day.
Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton now leads Trump by an average of just 1.7 percentage points nationally, according to the RealClearPolitics average of polls. Less than three weeks ago, Clinton led by 7 points on the same model. ....FiveThirtyEight’s forecast model gives Trump a 34 percent chance of winning. On Oct. 17, the same model gave Trump a 12 percent chance.....
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, who has for the longest time refused to even mention Trump’s name, rewarded the GOP nominee with a full-throated endorsement this week. Two of Trump’s former GOP presidential rivals, Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker and Texas Sen. Ted Cruz
“Another major factor,” Black added, “is all the news about ObamaCare's huge premium increases.”...
(And finally for now)
Polling experts have observed that Trump and Clinton, two historically distrusted general election candidates, both tend to do better when the media’s spotlight settles on the other. Over the past week — but for a few exceptions such as the stories about Trump’s tax manipulations and alleged Russian ties — Clinton has been constantly in the news, and not for good reasons....”
The Hill is a crook? Who'd have thunk it? Only half the planet!
So The Donald MAY just grab victory out of the jaws of defeat: only the poll (and the electoral college) will tell us.

As secretary of state, Hillary Clinton routinely asked her maid to print out sensitive government e-mails and documents — including ones containing classified information — from her house in Washington, DC, e-mails and FBI memos show. But the housekeeper lacked the security clearance to handle such material. In fact, Marina Santos was called on so frequently to receive e-mails that she may hold the secrets to E-mailgate — if only the FBI and Congress would subpoena her and the equipment she used.
