    I must say that I was nearly certain that they were going to steal the election, and am thinking that Trump's sometimes annoying drumbeat about the elections being rigged might have been what kept them from being rigged. I do know that throughout his campaign, he has said or done things that I thought were incredibly stupid, but which were proven to have worked in his favor. Maybe he is actually much better at this than even his most ardent supporters thought.

    Ken you were wrong when you said all voter fraud was the dems. Donald Trump Jr was caught taking a picture of his ballot which is against the rules. They will be throwing him in jail for that flagrant miss use of the voting laws.

    That's not fraud, however.

    I'm sure there's some cheating going on everywhere. What I worry about is a large-scale organized fix.

    Okay, just for the sake of interest, seeing as the winner has already been chosen. Of the four states that still hadn't been called as of my last posting, three of them have.

    With 100% of the vote counted, we have:
    • Michigan -- Trump 2,275,844 (47.60%) to 2,263,198 (47.33%) for Clinton.
    • New Hampshire -- Clinton 346,816 (47.54) to 345,379 (47.35%) for Trump.
    • Minnesota -- Clinton 1,363,741 (46.84%) to 1,320,998 (45.38%) for Trump.
    With 97.82% of the vote counted, we have
    • Arizona -- Trump 946,348 (49.69%) to 862,882 (45.31%) for Clinton.
    Trump -- 279 electoral votes
    Clinton -- 232 electoral votes

    Once Arizona is added as a Trump win, Trump will have 306 electoral votes to Clinton's 232, for a total of 538 electoral votes.

    Here is how the electoral college works, and since it's from a government site, I can copy it all here.

    This is a little on the mean side perhaps, but I couldn't help myself.

    Not unless something really weird happens, and I can't imagine it.

    Lol but yes a little bit mean but I think we're allowed. We've taken so much crap from them, it's our turn.

    And again, I'm not talking about any of our supporters of Hillary. Theyve all been very gracious.

    As a friend of mine said on Facebook, "Hillary finally got a chance to do that 3:00 a.m. phone call."

    Although Maine has long split its electoral votes, this is the first time in history that its votes were actually split. Previously, the winner of the statewide popular vote has also won both districts, getting all four of Maine's electoral vote. For the first time in history, they were split this year and although that one vote didn't make a difference in the outcome of the election, it could have, and it makes a difference to me because I live in District 2, which gave one electoral vote to Donald Trump and, in fact, I live in the portion of District 2 that voted the most heavily for Trump.

    @Ken Anderson
    It strikes me as funny, looking at this state map of Nevada, since 86% of the state's land area is Federal Land! Only 14% Private Land. The state's land area is 110,000 square miles, therefore only roughly 20,000 available for public ownership. Very few people, if any, reside on the Federal Land.

    EDIT: ."...absolutely no one lives there, yet they colored it blue."
    They colored nearly the entire state of Nevada red, also, whereas no one lives on 86% of it!
