5 Lib Lies About Their Own Popularity– Running the Numbers—42GH.,B26

LIE 1: Hillary won the popular vote! Liberalism is large and in charge! Fact: Clinton’s entire popular vote margin came from just one state: California. Trump won the popular votes in 30 out of 50 states — with 304 Electoral College votes to Clinton’s 227 — and he carried 2,623 out of 3,112 counties (84%). Trump’s America: 3,000,000 square miles (85%); Clinton’s America: 530,000 square miles (15%).

LIE 3: Blocking highways, agitating, violently protesting, and “community organizing” are rocketing liberals into power everywhere at the local level. Fact: Liberals are virtually impotent. Republicans now control 67 state legislative chambers; Democrats run just 31. There are 33 Republican governors, to 16 Democrats. Republicans have 25 state “trifectas,” holding the governorship, state senate, and state house. Democrats control only six, the fewest in history.
