The final popular vote tally shows that President-elect Donald Trump would have won the popular vote by 3 million votes if the states of California and New York weren’t included.
With all 50 states counted, Clinton did win the popular vote by 2.8 million.
She won California with 4.2 million and New York with 1.6 million. Clinton’s combined New York and California total of 5.8 million votes was about twice the size of her overall lead nationwide.
After it was all said and done, Trump won the other 48 states in America by 3 million votes.
Newt Gingrich said Trump was “killed” in California because he never campaigned there. Gingrich added that” without just California, Trump’s lead would have still been 1.2 million more popular votes than Hillary.”
Trump ended the Election Night with 306 Electoral votes and Clinton with 232, winning the election because of the Electoral college.
Both of them lost some Electoral votes when defectors voted at the Electoral college tally on Monday. Trump dropped 2 votes bringing him to 304 and Hillary lost 5 votes dropping her to 227.
