US Presidential Vote: The Big Trend. By Lion of the Blogosphere.
The Republican candidate for President won the popular vote in 5 out of 6 of these election years, sometimes by huge margins. In 1984, Reagan won the popular vote by 18 points over Mondale!
The Democratic candidate for President won the popular vote in 7 out of 8 of these election years. OK, 2020 didn’t happen yet, but anyone who thinks that Trump is going to win the popular vote in 2020 is smoking something. Trump’s most unreasonably optimistic supporters are only hoping for Trump to squeak by in the electoral college while losing the popular vote a second time.
No wonder the left is so arrogant and uncompromising. Demographics matter.
