a majority of americans do not support the views of trump. rightfully, we should never have to say President Trump. but that’s not how it works. it’s all about how the votes go, and if liberal votes are split, we will lose (source)
I WANT TO MAKE THIS CLEAR:
538 VOTES DECIDED THE 2000 ELECTION.
NOT FIVE THOUSAND. NOT FIFTY THOUSAND.
FIVE HUNDRED THIRTY EIGHT VOTES.
NO VOTE IS A THROW AWAY VOTE.
PROTEST VOTES, AND HOW MANY THERE ARE, WILL DECIDE IF TRUMP WINS OR IF CLINTON WINS.
EVERY. VOTE. COUNTS.
OHMYGOD, that’s what fivethirtyeight.com’s name significance is. Wow.
What is the significance of the number 538? 538 is the number of electors in the electoral college.
(from the 538 FAQ)
“A vote for Gary is a vote for Trump”
“So you’re telling me, you’ve found a way I can vote against Hillary twice?”
