The final vote count from the 2016 election is in -- and while Donald Trump may have won the Electoral College, Hillary Clinton won the popular vote by nearly 3 Million votes.
The voting results are now officially certified and the final number is 2,864,974 votes, according to the Cook Political Report. That final tally is five times the margin Al gore beat George W. Bush by in 2000 when he lost the Electoral College. That just 72,000 votes shy of President Obama's win in 2012.
In true Donald Trump fashion, the president-elect took to Twitter to comment on the updated results.
Campaigning to win the Electoral College is much more difficult & sophisticated than the popular vote. Hillary focused on the wrong states!
