Electoral College has spoken

As he has in post-election interviews, Trump said he would have campaigned differently if the popular determined the presidential victor.

Mrs Clinton won about two million votes more than Mr Trump in the popular vote. That will give him well over 300 electoral votes, a veritable electoral landslide.

The latest numbers show that Hillary Clinton won the popular vote by more than 2.2 million votes and that apparently is gnawing at the president-elect who won a convincing electoral college victory, which is all that really matters anyway. The Electoral College is an integral part of the Constitutional system, ensuring state representation as opposed to creating a situation where a few large areas could control the executive. This was based on the state-by-state contests. Lara Merling and Dean Baker lay it out: The Electoral College, like the Senate, is biased toward small states.

Democrats have now won six of the last seven presidential popular votes but only won the presidency in four of those elections.

Mr Trump also alleged "serious voter fraud" in Virginia, New Hampshire and California - states won by Mrs Clinton - accusing U.S. media of not reporting on that issue. The candidates would campaign very differently if that were the case, ignoring less populated traditional battleground states and focusing more on larger metropolitan areas - even in places that are now not "swing states", like Texas, New York and California.

Is there any evidence of illegal votes?

Clinton's campaign plans to back Green Party candidate Jill Stein's recount effort in the battleground state of Wisconsin.

Dr Stein also wants recounts in MI and Pennsylvania, citing "statistical anomalies". "There is no reason why we can not win in states all over this country".

"Many people have asked about Michigan's process for counting ballots and certifying election results".

"Before that compiled count, Trump held a 13,107 lead over Clinton", the Secretary of State's statement adds, reports the Independent Journal Review.
