    Obama won 22% in 2008 and 28% in 2012 Trump won 83%
    the difference  is the electoral votes of the states Obama won were big electoral votes and high population. CA has 55 votes and over 10 million voters with a high percentage all out dem. And it is an all or nothing electoral vote state.

      So Trump won more counties in one election than BO did in 2 elections.

      Yes, this is so interesting. I am a die hard rural representation dude. Counties seem more legit than straight population to me. But townships? Tell us more Brad.

      The point is that being popular in more counties throughout the US is more representative of popularity for the UNITED States then taking the total pop vote from just a few states. because most states dn have voter id, who knows who is really voting.

      It is really cool that a dude that won is investigating just how he won. Boy this investigation is going to cut both ways -- Maybe when I am 70 I will be so brave.
