There is a MASSIVE hole in the liberal media’s logic…
Hillary Clinton supporters, paid protesters, the liberal media, and even whining celebrities like Lady Gaga, have been running around touting Hillary’s success in the popular vote. Some even call for the abolishment of the Electoral College, as if somehow their heroine Hillary Clinton had been robbed.
As a side note, do you find it odd that they never seem to mention unfair it was that Hillary and the Democrat National Committee robbed Bernie Sanders of his popular vote?
Bernie Sanders abuse is more real that alleged Donald Trump sexual abuse, but that is old news.
Currently, news outlets continue to report Hillary’s “win” as popular votes continue to be counted.
Rawstory reports: Clinton up almost 400K in popular vote as ballots continue to be counted.
Democratic nominee Clinton, whose failure to capture the so-called “blue wall” of Midwest states like Wisconsin, Iowa, Michigan, and Ohio ultimately handed Trump a 290-232 electoral college victory. But she currently leads the popular vote 60,467,245 to Trump’s 60,071,650 for a difference of 395,595, or 47.7 percent to 47.4 percent, respectively, according to CBS News, CNN, and NBC News.
Clinton has seen her popular vote total increase from more than 233,000 on Thursday.
Those are impressive popular vote numbers, but there is a massive hole in their logic. Perhaps they are using Al Gore’s “fuzzy math?” Remember that one?
Here is the problem: If a given state, for example, Texas, is won by a candidate by a large margin, and the number of outstanding absentee ballots is smaller than that margin, those ballots are not counted. These uncounted ballots never make it to the final popular vote count total.
According to American Thinker:
If there is a margin of 1,000 votes counted and there are 1,300 absentee ballots outstanding, then the state tabulates those. If the number of outstanding absentee ballots wouldn’t influence the election results, then the absentee ballots aren’t counted.
Also, absentee ballots normally break 33% for Dems and 67% for Republicans. Take that, liberals!
In the end, liberals do not truly know if Hillary won the popular vote or not.
At this point, however, things have gotten so bad for them that shaky arguments and incomplete math are all that they have left.
