Next month Donald Trump will be declared the 45th President of the United States of America, although he has almost three million votes less than his former counter candidate.
After the results of the U.S. presidential elections were finally certified, the data say that the democratic candidate won 65.844.610 votes or 48.2 percent, while the republican Donald Trump won 62.979.636 votes or 43.1 percent. The difference is huge – 2.864.974 votes.
Other candidates won a total of 7.804.213 votes or 5.7 percent.
According to the number of votes, in the majority of other democratic countries Clinton would become the president. However, the U.S. electoral system does not count the total number of votes but the total sum of electors who play the role of holders of the votes from citizens.
All electors of some federal state give their vote to the winner in that country, regardless of the percentage ratio of the victory.
Clinton thus became the defeated candidate who won the greatest positive difference in comparison with the winner. Trump won in what seems to be the most important: the electoral votes, which were finally published on December 19 and amount to 304:227 in favor of Trump.
