    the popular vote is still being counted and she's ahead by a very slim amount, and the democrats not turning out to vote says a lot about what they think of her.

    It is still being counted? Its been 2 days already lol

    Anyway It's pretty sad that you're voter turnout is so low when the elections are so polarizing, you'd think people would actually care more

    thats part of how they won the elections. lies, fear, uncertainty, doubt, envy, discord. you name it.
    and im no sore lose, because i didnt play in first place.

    also is it true that he wants to make sarah palin part of his cabinet? thats the big minds counseling him? an ex goldman sachs minister of finance - thats so not establishment and totally not what let americans bleed in the first place? lel

    the fact that you think that means you haven't a clue why such an unconventional candidate like trump was elected.
    as for his cabinet it hasn't been decided yet but since he has no experience in holding any office he needs people who have, but newt and rudy will be 2 of his top advisors. chief of staff and AG, both are brilliant and perfect ones to advise.

    She did win the popular vote. However, the electoral college exists for exactly this reason because our forefathers didn't want big cities running the election. I agree, this election has been a shitfest, but people were disenfranchised with the democrats after Obama, hence the huge drop for Obama. And this actually fits with what I was saying, Hillary ran a fear mongering campaign to try to get people to not vote for him but also not vote for her so it lead to people just not voting. That or both candidates were "bad" in some people's opinion and just didn't vote, the more likely scenario.

    Electoral college is there to provide the rural people the same vote as the cities. Our cities tend to be EXTREMELY democratic, which if that happened, all candidates would focus on is policies of our cities and of the majority, rather than the minority. The electoral college gives the small states with less people a guaranteed say in the election, making it so candidates have to have a well rounded policy rather than targeting the population centers. People say we need to repeal it, but then our small states, the states who focus on the agriculture and industries that cities don't have, would have 0 say in anything.

    as far as I can tell the final tally for the popular vote isn't reached yet, so no one won it yet, unless you have a link that states a final total...but HRC has a slim lead atm. Also she lost 3 states in the Dems blue wall.

    that's not what I meant, it means stop whining about it. it is what it is because the dems did not want to vote for her so they had a low turnout.
    They should grow up and act like adults like Hillary, Obama and Trump are doing.
    I'm proud of all 3 of them given the nastiness of this campaign from all sides, they put their differences aside, want a smooth transition and do what's best for America, people should follow their lead.

    Obama and Trump just finished their first meeting and it was very uplifting to see them feel good about each other.

    Get over it, the campaigning is over. We need to be open minded, give him a chance and let the President elect lead, because that's what serves America and its people best.
