She landslided California, but lost the combined popular vote in the other 49 states (& DC).
Dems are still carping that Trump’s ascendency is illegitimate since Hillary won the popular vote.
And, everybody knows that Hillary won big in California.
But, I was a bit surprised by how big her California win was … and its implications.
Bottom line: Clinton won the national popular vote by 2.8 million votes … buoyed by a 4.3 million edge in California.
Think about that for a second.
Yes, Clinton won California big time … but, Trump won the combined popular vote of the other 49 states (& DC)
The MSM repeatedly observes that Trump followers drag their knuckles … and that Hillary dominated among the intelligensia.
So was Clinton’s success in California simply explained by Californians being smarter than the rest of the country?
Quick quiz: how does the average Californian’s IQ rack up against residents of other states?
The answer may surprise you ….
The United States IQ average is ranked #24 worldwide … with an average IQ of 98.
What about California? How does it rack-up against other states?
Answer: According to several sources, Californians’ average IQ is 95.5 (2.5 IQ points lower than the national average … ranking the state #48 in the U.S. (3rd from the bottom).
So much for the ‘dummies for Trump’ cliche … looks like they may have powered Hillary to a popular vote edge.
My suggestion: Clinton should dust off her Arkansas-to-New York carpetbag … move to California … run for Governor … and lead the state’s secession drive.
Strikes me as a win-win …
