Clinton now leads Trump with over 2m votes

It is highly unlikely the 37 Republican electors to change their votes, and in most states, electors must cast a vote for the victor of their state's popular vote.

The Associated Press reported on the content of Trump's message but did not send the video to members of the news cooperative.

As many as 7,143,347 votes went to third party, write-ins, or independent candidates, the data revealed.

In the USA presidents are elected by the Electoral College - not by popular vote.

In 2012, 77 per cent of Asian Americans voted for President Barack Obama, while 21 per cent voted for Republican nominee Mitt Romney.

The Electoral College system favours candidates who win by a small margin in lots of states over ones that win by a landslide in just a few. President Barack Obama still holds the constitutional authority to completely pardon Clinton until noon EST on January 20, and would likely do so if he actually believed she would face criminal prosecution.

There are also calls to recount votes in some swing states like MI, where the Republican candidate won by a narrow margin of 30,000 votes for a total of five million voters. In Wisconsin, her campaign would have to pay for that recount because she lost by too many votes.

"Three thousand votes are all that separate Clinton and Trump in New Hampshire".

Some media organizations did not call a victor of the presidential race in MI on election night because of the closeness of the race.

The Democratic candidate's 1.5 percent lead in the popular vote makes no difference to the outcome of the November 8 election, which Trump won by taking a majority of electoral votes.

Though neither the Clinton or Trump team have commented on the possible rigging yet, the news itself adds yet another layer of confusion and frustration to an election year that already seems fictitious in so many ways. It takes money, manpower and accurate voting machines to get every vote counted correctly, he explained why the counting takes so long.

In such circumstances the Constitution dictates that the House of Representatives would step in and elect the next president.

Trump repeatedly stoked crowds at campaign rallies with promises to charge and prosecute Clinton for a range of what Trump painted as crimes, from her use of a private email server during her time as secretary of state to the dealings of the Clinton Foundation.

US presidential elections are essentially individual elections in each of the 50 states and the national capital city, Washington, with the victor in each state getting all of its votes in the Electoral College. "Campaigning is much different!" "I don't think they will be disappointed".

Now after the fifth time in American history that the popular vote victor lost the Electoral College vote, and second in modern times (the first three were in the 1800s), the talk turns to abolishing it.
