Trump lauds Electoral College as Clinton wins popular vote

As of this writing, November 11, there are still a few million votes to count, but it appears that the American people as a nation prefer Clinton over Trump by 300,000 to 500,000 votes, or more.

A newly elected Donald Trump has changed his tune on the Electoral College, calling it "genius" after his win in the presidential election - a far cry from when he blasted it four years ago.

"In 2012, Donald Trump tweeted, 'The electoral college is a disaster for a democracy, ' " Boxer added. Trump also tweeted that he'd have been successful even under a popular vote system, since he would have campaigned in different places, focusing on California and NY, "and won even bigger and more easily".

Hillary Clinton is on track to win the popular vote by more than two million votes when all the absentee ballots are counted.

The Detroit News verified one message containing a death wish and another containing a death threat, in which the person told Banerian he would "put a bullet" in his mouth.
