Does Hillary Have The Popular Vote ? Clinton’metrics 101
“I am very proud that as of today, I have received more votes by the people who have voted than anybody else,” she said after her narrow Indiana victory and before her big win in West Virginia on Tuesday. “It’s a very close race, but if you count, as I count, the 2.3 million people who voted in Michigan and Florida, then we are going to build on that.”
Since then, Clinton has tempered her claim of being ahead in votes, although her aides have not.
“I think I’ve now been privileged to receive the votes of 17 million Americans, and that’s pretty much the same as Senator Obama,” she said Wednesday on CNN.
Her campaign chairman, Terry McAuliffe, went farther Wednesday: “We are ahead in the popular vote — I cannot stress this enough.”
The Beef …
I counted every vote and it all adds up… but only if you’re using “Clintonmetrics”.
“Clintonmetrics” is a system of voting metrics (mathmatics + tricks) developed by the Clintons to spin the voting numbers their way. Coined here first, on the beefs. Wikipedia has yet to contact me, but it shouldn’t be long :)
fuzzy math + deception + wishful thinking = Clintonmetrics
Regardless of what math they use, it makes no difference. This is not a race for votes, it is a race for delegates. The popular vote is irrelevant, unless you live in Billary’s world. If you did, Al Gore would be finishing up his second term as president.
