Anne Devlin from Plano Texas cried after the Electoral College voted at the state Capitol in Austin on Monday

Hillary Clinton beat Mr. Trump by more than 2.8 million votes, or 2.1 percent of the electorate.

Kellyanne Conway appeared on "Hannity" with guest host Eric Bolling on Tuesday and scolded former president Bill Clinton for making excuses about why wife and Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton lost last month's election to President-elect Donald Trump. Madison engineered a compromise where the "Three-Fifths" slave citizens would be counted when allotting Electoral College votes, which allowed the Southern states to have more Electoral College votes.

Hillary Clinton won the popular vote by 2.8 votes, but this is completely attributable to her huge plurality in only one state: California.

"I would have done even better in the election, if that is possible, if the victor was based on popular vote - but would campaign differently", Trump wrote in the second tweet.

Not only did the editors forget that they used to be in favor of the Electoral College, they buried the memory of the 2000 election when a different Republican president won enough electoral votes while losing the popular vote.

Durbin joins a growing list of lawmakers and pundits calling for a change to the electoral system. "I don't blame Donald Trump at all".

"Presidential electors play an important role in our democracy and are enabled by our constitution to make an independent judgement", said Bartlett in a written statement to the Bangor Daily News.

Trump has frequently said that he won the election by a landslide, which Clinton also commented on.

Clinton won California by 4.2 million and took NY by more than 1.6 million. More than 100 were at the capitol in Jefferson City.

The numbers reflect the final certified results from all states and Washington, D.C. In percentages, the vote totals equal 48 percent for Clinton compared to 46 percent for Trump.

The President-elect previously critiqued the electoral college system. But half of Americans didn't vote, and he got a minority of those who did.

Trump is looking at a smooth road to the inauguration now that only two of the electors defected from the president elect.

A joint session of Congress is scheduled for January 6 to certify the results of the Electoral College. Trump's individual targets have ranged from Fox News anchor Megyn Kelly, whose questions during a presidential debate angered Trump, to the leader of an IN steelworkers union who disputed the number of jobs saved by a Trump deal IN that state.
