Hillary Clinton lost the election but is winning the popular vote
Donald Trump may have scored an astonishing upset
presidential victory, but Hillary Clinton could
still receive more votes.

As of Wednesday evening, hours after Clinton
called Trump to concede, the former secretary of
state clung to a narrow lead in the popular vote,
47.7%-47.5%.

She had 59,755,284 votes, according to CNN's
tally, with 92% of the expected vote counted.
Trump had 59,535,522. That difference of 219,762
is razor-thin considering the nearly 120 million
votes counted so far. The totals will continue to
change as absentee votes trickle in.

It's a fascinating turn of events for Trump, who
four years ago tweeted, "The electoral college is
a disaster for a democracy," following Mitt
Romney's loss in 2012.

If Clinton hangs on, she would become the first
presidential candidate since Al Gore in 2000 to
win the popular vote but lose the election. Trump,
who clinched the nomination by securing 270
Electoral College votes, currently leads Clinton
290-228, though Michigan and New Hampshire have
yet to be called.

Prior to Gore's defeat to George W. Bush in 2000,
three other candidates -- Andrew Jackson, Samuel
Tilden and Grover Cleveland, all in the 19th
century -- had won the popular vote and lost the
election.

Entering Tuesday, with most polls showing Clinton
with marginal but steady leads, Trump's chances of
victory were seen as remote. The Electoral College
map was considered favorable to Clinton, who was
said to have several paths to the winning
threshold of 270 electoral votes.

But Trump obliterated Clinton's firewall, picking
off unexpected wins in Wisconsin and Pennsylvania,
as well as sweeping swing states like North
Carolina, Florida and Ohio.
