Apparently all of the votes have not been counted yet. Do projections show that Trump will win the popular vote once all votes have been counted for?

Do projections show that Trump will win the popular vote once all votes have been counted for?

No, in fact, quite the opposite.

The New York Times estimates Clinton to have won the popular vote by around 1.3%.

CNN also predicts it, as well as The Guardian.

The final outcome was Trump 46.1%, Clinton 48.2%, a margin for Clinton of 2.1%, but Trump won a majority in the Electoral College and became President.

  • Most agree that clinton won the popular vote. There is, however, a claim by an organization expressly stating that 3,000,000 illegal aliens voted in the 2016 general election. This claim has yet to be verified with actual data but the organization is claiming that data is forthcoming. Until then, it's merely a baseless claim. The purpose of this comment is not to cast doubt on the validity of luweiqi's answer (it is correct), but instead to make readers aware that more data may change the answer at some point...not that it matters though as it will not change the electoral count. – acpilot Nov 19 '16 at 2:19
  • @acpilot It's now been over 2 and a half years. Has the data come out yet to change this answer? – isakbob Aug 12 at 14:11

    @isakbob Still a "baseless claim" as far as I know. – acpilot Aug 12 at 14:21
