Trump received 13,406,108 votes to date in the elections…As a result Trump has more votes than any candidate in Republican history. Trump shattered the previous record by 1.4 million votes — and that was with 17 candidates in the race.
Trump may also be the first candidate in the modern era to have funded his campaign by himself during the primary season.
Although his results are much more impressive, he only spent a quarter the amount of money as Democrats Clinton and Sanders. He proved to be the real capitalist in the primary while Clinton and Sanders proved to be the socialists freely spending other people’s money. …
On the Democratic side, Hillary Clinton pulled out the win with more delegates than socialist Sanders. However, nearly a quarter of her delegates came from controversial ‘super delegates’. Her road to the Democratic nomination was far less impressive and may also go down in history because she may be under indictment before the November election.
