What would a national popular vote mean? Instead of watching days of livestreams of swing state poll workers, the result would have been settled on Tuesday night.
National Popular Vote
Connecticut is set to join 10 states that commit their electoral votes to the presidential candidate who wins the nation's popular vote — regardless of who wins in those states.
Donald Trump won. Hillary Clinton lost. But 2016 is the election that no one — not even Trump himself — can get over.
The Democrat now leads Donald Trump by more than 2 million votes, as counting continues in California. But don't expect electors to overturn the result or for the Electoral College to be eliminated.
