When Googling Presidential Election Results the following metadata is shown, part of which is confusing me. Can anyone enlighten me as to what these percentages represent? (Obviously the other numbers represent number of votes)

    Looks like a browser issue (or maybe an issue on Google's end that they've since fixed) -- for me, that page has those numbers in the right column and the candidates' info on the left, and it's titled "Popular vote". – Matthew Read Nov 9 '16 at 3:46
  • @MatthewRead Thanks, looks to be an issue with my browser. Doh!!! – Brendan Gooden Nov 9 '16 at 4:14

You are looking at the popular vote percentage for the respective candidate.
