Trump and the Vote

We love how many of the national commentators and pundits always point out that while Donald Trump won the presidency, he didn’t get the popular vote. Well, it’s clear Donald Trump’s strategy was to reach the 270 electoral votes he needed to become the President of the United States. And that’s what he did, executing a strategy of campaigning in the swing states of Wisconsin, Pennsylvania, Michigan, and Ohio as Election Day approached.

That strategy worked well as he swept those four states on Election Day. Had the popular vote been the process by which the President is elected, Trump would have campaigned more in California, New York, and New England.  Let’s give President-Elect Trump and the amazing Kellyanne Conway credit for winning an election few pundits thought he could.

    Agreed. The Beacon Hill Times is ridiculous in its bias…..placing editorials on the front page, trying to force opinions down our throat (and failing). It really is comical…and KCT is such an arrogant old bag of wind.
    It’s a pity Beacon Hill doesn’t have a newspaper with real journalistic values and standards.
