Hillary Clinton lost the presidency, but may have won the popular vote



Despite losing the presidency, Hillary Clinton may have won the popular vote, according to The New York Times. Votes are still being counted, but she is projected to win the popular vote by roughly a percentage point.

By 5:20 a.m. Wednesday, Clinton was still down by about 200,000 votes, but there were many votes yet to be counted in California and Washington, both strongly Democratic states, and Colorado and Oregon, which she was projected to win.

This Fox News graphic breaks it down.

In 2012, Trump called the Electoral College a disaster. It has now led to his presidency.

Only four presidents have ever won the election without winning the popular vote: George W. Bush in 2000, Benjamin Harrison in 1888, Rutherford B. Hayes in 1876, and John Quincy Adams in 1824. 

Does the Electoral College need to change in any way?
