Majority Of Trump Voters Think He Won Popular Vote (He Didn’t)

Republicans' alternate reality bubble is more bubbly than ever. Cenk Uygur, host of The Young Turks, breaks it down. Tell us what you think in the comment section below.

"…But this hope faces a serious challenge: Half of all Republicans actually think Trump won the popular vote.

In a nationally representative online survey of 1,011 Americans conducted by Qualtrics between Dec. 6 and 12, we asked respondents, “In last month’s election, Donald Trump won the majority of votes in the electoral college. Who do you think won the most popular votes?”

Twenty-nine percent said Donald Trump won the popular vote. This is a slightly larger proportion than in a recent Pew survey in which 19 percent said Trump won the popular vote.

Respondents’ correct understanding of the popular vote depended a great deal on partisanship. A large fraction of Republicans — 52 percent — said Trump won the popular vote, compared with only 7 percent of Democrats and 24 percent of independents. Among Republicans without any college education, the share was even larger: 60 percent, compared with 37 percent of Republicans with a college degree."*

    C’mon The Young Turks. I’m a hillary supporter but I accept that Trump won.
    Get over it.

    President Trump won 30 states vs HRC’s 20, *and even a plurality of the
    popular vote outside of CA.*

    • Posted by Sagisli, at Reply

      INuchalHead: For some reason these people who keep discounting CA seem to
      forget that CA is the seventh largest economy in the world. They are the
      “MAKERS” and the red states are the “TAKERS”. What CA pays in Fed Tax
      dollars is more than most of the red states combined. This “California
      would control the vote” is bullshit propaganda that the Conservative media
      pushes and they lap it up like dogs without thinking. I’d take California
      over thirty red states combined. California is a trail blazing state
      particularly in green energy, technology and agriculture. BTW, I DO NOT
      live in California.

      SIoyvenheaven1 more people have been terrorized by the white racists in
      Christianity. KKK, the Native American genocide the transatlantic slave
      trade. Hitler’s Germany which was a Christian nation at the time it
      murdered 11 million people. So NO the majority of terrorists in world
      history are from the other Religion of Peace. Christianity. I am a
      Christian by the way and I am very ashamed of that fact.

    Take California out and Trump won overwhelmingly. This is why the electoral
    college was created. Civics 101.

    • Posted by Nez, at Reply

      +Alex N The Electoral College was created by slave owners for slave owners.
      There is no reason for it now. It goes against the very concept of one
      person, one vote. Wow, who would’ve thought a lot of smart people tend to
      live & socialize with other smart people. Ever wonder why those cities are
      MAJOR cities with huge economies? No reason. Just herd thinking. The same
      could be said for stupid people, I guess. NBD.

    • Posted by Alex N, at Reply

      +Nez “The Electoral College was created by slave owners for slave owners” –
      so was electricity.

      Herd thinking is real. It’s in our DNA. It doesn’t matter if you’re smart
      or stupid, it applies equally both ways. That’s why electoral college is
      useful regardless of its original purpose – it places less weight on people
      who think more alike.

      I’d recommend “Herd thinking in times of piece and war” but since you think
      you’re right, and hence everybody else is wrong, I doubt you’d get
      interested. Which is a shame, because it’s free and considered so
      definitive that it’s in the Library of Congress. Your loss.

    You don’t get it. The Earth is flat, the lizard people are building FEMA

      TINY RICK MUTHA FUCKAS! TINY RICK MUTHA FUCKAS! Depends what side of the
      “majority” is pissed off …but In Americas case today… on one side the
      “silent majority “we have men with rifles who could possibly start a civil
      war, on the other side we have sensitive goonies that’ll bang on drums,
      while singing something like “no TRUMP, No KKK, No Fascist USA, No TRUMP”
      with no chance of saving a cat from a tree, let alone a starting a tactical
      movement with traction. It’s also important to note, while not necessarily
      republicans, 90%+ of Americans armed forces and law enforcement, stand
      behind the TRUMP movement. So the next 4-8 years at least, while things
      could get “noisy” that’ll be about the extent of it.

      morons”. Would love to know how you came to that conclusion… lmao Some

      100% of all Hillary supporters are imbeciles 😂😂😂

      +Lsx Powered What about the billions of dollars spent on Bush’s vacations?
      Do you know how much it costs for the president to travel? In 6 years in
      office Obama took 19 vacations totaling at 125 days. Bush took 65 vacations
      totaling at 407 days.
      http://www.politifact.com/truth-o-meter/article/2014/aug/23/who-took-more-vacation-george-w-bush-or-barack-oba/
      Also, a typical flight for the president costs almost $1 million.
      http://www.dailywire.com/news/2819/so-how-much-has-all-obamas-vacations-cost-james-barrett
      So even if that number is true, which I’m sure it isn’t, it is literal
      pocket change compared to how much Bush cost us with vacations alone.

    • Posted by Lsx Powered, at Reply

      Dylan Armstrong Keep deflecting… Everything you just said is completely
      irrelevant and has nothing to do with anything I stated. Either way Obama
      has lost way more than what your letting on to. But I don’t think you
      understand my point, It’s not about the money. And regardless, you’d never
      have enough people to eat $65,000 worth of pizza and hotdogs in a single
      night… They’re code words, like seriously how dull are you?

      If you add Hillary huge win in California, and New york to Trump narrow win
      in many of the states Hillary wins the popular vote. if Trump had won by
      large numbers in 31 states he would have won the popular vote. California
      and New York doesn’t control the entire US.

      Funny you said that……
      People are not willing to admit to voting for Obama. I live in CA and the
      number of those willing to admit the vote are slim.
      People refuse to admit they voted for him (maybe 30% did). Or maybe they
      were ashamed and didn’t want to answer question on why they voted for him.

    • Posted by The Timekeeper, at Reply

      +Lee Walter Despite what you might believe, no one is entitled to know who
      someone else voted for or why. That’s true regardless of the political
      affiliation(s) of those involved, which is why it doesn’t matter whether
      people do or don’t want to talk about their vote. If they do, great; if
      they don’t, fine. That’s exactly why voting stations are
      partitioned—because it’s no one else’s business.

      I’m liberal and believe there are only two genders lmfao. male and female.
      also non binary, but that’s really not a gender to me. more of a non-gender.

    • Posted by Zen Jamm, at Reply

      Since the the commenters are mostly geniuses, i am not going to go over
      anyone’s head with this.
      Of course we know sexes are male and female and there is the very rare
      blend of both, but usually not equally.
      When speaking of gender, you can talk about electrons and protons as well
      as electronics and automotives.
      But an interesting occult theory exists and is extremely obscure, which
      might interest zero or more people, depending on your interest in the
      workings of human beings.
      The woman and the man have different genders in them depending on what part
      of the consciousness you are looking at. For instance, a male has, of
      course a physical body that is masculine in gender, while his emotions are
      feminine (passive) and his mental body is again masculine (active). His
      soul, whatever such a thing really is and IF it is, is feminine.
      A woman is precisely the opposite, notably having an emotional body and a
      soul of masculine genders, while her physical and mental bodies are
      feminine.
