In the 2016 election, the Republican candidate Donald Trump received more than one million votes, more than the Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton.
Trump’s total vote total was more than twice as many as Clinton’s, but he only received 5.4 percent of the vote in the Electoral College.
According to the Associated Press, Trump’s margin of victory was smaller than that of the 2012 Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney, who received 24.3 percent of votes.
Trump received a total of 727,000 votes in the 2016 presidential election.
In 2020, the number of votes cast in the presidential election exceeded 1.5 billion, the AP reported.
During the election, Clinton received more votes than Trump, but she lost the popular vote to Trump.
According the AP, Clinton’s total margin of defeat was about 20 percent.
Trump, meanwhile, was awarded the presidency by the Supreme Court in November, which gave him more than 2.8 million votes.
During that election, he received more popular votes than Clinton, and he received about half as many votes in electoral votes.
The 2016 election saw a number of controversial votes in addition to Trump, such as the decision to give legal status to millions of undocumented immigrants.
Trump won the Electoral Vote by less than 2,700 votes, according to the AP.
The president-elect also received fewer votes than in the previous election, according the AP: In 2016, Trump received about 1.6 million votes compared to 1.9 million for Clinton.
In 2021, Trump will be the president-expectant at the inauguration, and his administration will have less power than it did under President Obama.
