You guys keep sing the same sad song. One state, California, gives Hillary the popular vote edge.

Q: Who won the popular vote?

A: Clinton's lead of more than 2 million votes, according to the Cook Political Report, continues to increase, largely due to an influx of absentee and provisional ballots still being counted in California. She has about 64.2 million votes to Trump's 62.2 million; her margin in California alone is more than 3.7 million.
If California were an even toss up then Trump would have easily won the popular vote.

If we switched to election by popular vote 46 out of 50 States might as well stay home because the other 4 most populated States would decide the election.
